Etienne Giraud kindly shared this edit of the recent Tartiflat Jam in France with us: "As always, a very good weekend in the Alps at Annecy : tricks, challenges, cheese, food and beers. Lots of riders came this year form Lyon, Grenoble, Zurich, Paris and more. Many thanks to Autum bicycle for the parts and The Roster for the delicious burger!"
Could you imagine a better person to explain a nose manual than the world record holder? We can't! In this excellent how-to-video Davis is taking time to share all his knowledge on the trick. It's really detailed but still fun to watch. We'd love to see more videos like that.
Davis has also set a new world record for the longest nose manual recently: 382m. Stay tuned for the edit!

We don't get a lot of information from India but every now and then a new video of a talented rider pops up. Last time we mentioned Annul Pale was in 2016. Check out his progress! You can also follow him on Facebook.
Ark League posted on Facebook that the events (including Flatark) is postponed to 2019. Many riders probably booked their ticket already. Can anyone out there organize a nice jam in Kobe on the former contest weekend?
"ARK LEAGUE 2018 official announce to whom may concern.
Apology and notification for postponement of ARK LEAGUE 2018.
Thank you always for supporting ARK LEAGUE. We would like to take this opportunity to announce that ARK LEAGUE 2018 will be postponed officially.
Due to the prolonged adjustment on date and venue of the 2nd round skateboard world competition, there is a high possibility that overseas riders will not be able to participate in SKATE ARK on October 26, 27 and 28.
ARK LEAGUE has been aiming to hold the world's high class tournament in Japan since its establishment. With the situation above, we judged that the timing is not appropriate, and decided to postpone the ARK LEAGUE 2018.
We plan to schedule it on spring of 2019, and once date and location are confirmed, it will be announced on the website. If you are already registered, there is no need to re-register for next spring as it’s automatically counted at our end.
Again, we apologize for those who is looking forward ARK LEAGUE 2018, participants and sponsors who are supporting the contest, Kobe City of local administration, and everyone involved in the ARK LEAGUE. We promise that we will return with larger scale, and would appreciate your continuous support for ARK LEAGUE.
