2023 DownUnderGround Australian BMX flatland video contest


The 2023 DownUnderGround, the Australian BMX flatland championships video round is complete. Riders from around Australia spent hours riding one of the hardest forms of BMX freestyle, flatland BMX, and gaining clips to submit for the DownUnderGround 15 video round. Riders could submit multiple clips in their video up to 2 ½ minutes. It’s great to see the riders putting time in and supporting BMX flatland by entering and being involved. Congratulations to Gonzalo Bellanti for taking the win and pushing his progression his clips are definitely worth watching a few times. Freestyle Now squad members Paul Chamberlain took the 2nd place while Shaun Jarvis had a respectable 5th place. Congratulations to all the riders.

It was great to have the commentary from our judges, Joe Cicman, James McGraw and Jon Dowker as well as Paul Chamberlain and organizer Shaun Jarvis. Their comments are both a valuable insight and comedic relief for the world’s longest running BMX flatland video contest.
