From the BMX Freestyler Archives- Austin Flatlanders 2 Remixed

The Austin Flatlanders 2 Remixed was a turning point for BMX Freestyler. The first video Austin Flatlanders 2 received many comments back in the pedalbmx hay day. Many of the comments received were constructive criticism. Things have never been the same since that day. I will be pulling photos,interviews and of course videos from the BMX Freestyler archives on a regular basis along with new and exciting events that are happening.

Fireworks Display in Austin,Texas

It was a typical Saturday Session at the Legendary Oltorf Garage when all of a sudden there was a very loud explosion. It didn't stop there. There were multiple explosions. To our surprise there was a fireworks display going on. It was very random we were all trying to figure out what the celebration was for and who was putting it on. Needless to say so was the Austin PD as we heard police sirens and fire trucks speeding to the location of the display. We all kind of sat back and enjoyed the display and even started riding underneath the burst of sparkles in the air. Stay tuned to some footage of this in the up and coming ATX Flatland Crew - February 2010

Trick of the Month for February 2010- Hang 5

Trick of the Month 2010 Edition

The Trick of the Month has become a staple of BMX Freestyler and Global-Flat. The Tradition shall continue on for the year of 2010. My goal over the years was to help riders out there stay motivated learning tricks and pushing the envelope that new variations would be thought of at the same time. All tricks in the Trick of the Month are a Beginner/Intermediate Level. That way all rider can participate or make attempts.

Here is how Trick of the Month works. Every month there will be a new trick in the spotlight. You can do 1 of 2 things

1. Post a video or photo of you performing the designated trick for that month
2. Make comments to help or inspire each other.

Variations are a good thing! So if you got something unusual and different please share with everyone. 09 was a great year for participation. I hope to keep the tradition going with some new tricks thrown into the mix along with some old faithful.

January- Hang 10 Seat Grab
February – Hang 5
March – Messiah
April- Karl
May- Switch Hand Steam Roller
June- Hitchhiker
July – Mc Circle
August – Cliffhanger
September – Brakeless Decade
October – Mega Spin

The Trick of the Month for February is a Hang 5. Get your video to me anyway you can.
