Steve Mulder- Throw Back

BMX flatland and Indiana go way back! Steve Mulder, Bill Nitschke, and Perry Mervar were the flatland shredders of the Hoosier state back in the mid 80s. The least known of the three was Steve. I've been friends with Steve for over 20 years, and as far back as I can remember he was always one of the best riders in the Midwest. He has continued to progress his riding to new levels this past year. Even though Steve hasn't competed in several years, he's one of the most respected riders on the planet! Super ropes and 360 bike flips are 2 of the hardest tricks ever done in BMX flatland, both of which he invented.

Back in June 2011 Steve told me he had been riding alot and he we discussed the idea of a new web edit. Unfortunately my trip got postponed until the fall which is typically a cold and rainy time of year in Indiana. Luckily the weather was decent and we were able to accomplish what we set out to do. We've worked together in the past on some video stuff, usually just a few clips here and there. This time we wanted to do a little longer edit. Steve wanted to focus on boomerang and decade tricks from his past. Steve said he wanted to do some tricks that got him stocked on riding. Steve created a list and one by one he checked them off. We got off to a good start, and once we had a few moves in the can, we discussed a few more trick options, and the list grew. Some of these tricks were done for the first time ever, others were tricks he had only pulled a couple of times, while some of these tricks were done for the first time without any brakes. Some of these tricks don't have anything to do with boomerangs or decades... That's why they call it FREESTYLE! ha ha... We hope you enjoy it!

Special thanks to Steve for taking the time out of his work schedule to put in over 25 hours of time in front of the camera. Special thanks to his wife Mary for watching the kids so Steve could film after work and on the weekends. Special thanks to Todd Carter for busting out his skills with the motion graphics. A very special thanks to Bill Nitschke and Shannon Zook over at Wonder Wheels BMX for giving me a place to crash! Also thanks to Bill for the shooting the final clip in the video. Ayyyyyy! Hoosier hospitality!

Hey everyone, there is a new site out there that is dedicated to helping people that are looking at flatland and trying to figure out whats next. A site like this has been needed for a very long time. I was recently contacted by Michael Chua that the site was up and running. So as we find people that are looking to get into flatland we have another source to direct people too.
