On Saturday, the Incline Club got the Free Flow Tour BMX season started with another awesome event. Each year Incline delivers great talent, and this year’s stop was no exception.
The older group brought out Jersey’s finest, plus many others who made the trip from neighboring states to qualify for the finals at the Ocean City Dew Tour. Frankie Day came out on top with a backflip over the spine, backflip transfer from the 6ft quarter to the adjacent wedge, double whip the spine, flairs, and a truck driver over the spine as well.

For Day, the win was the culmination of his training over the past year. "I entered Free Flow last year for the first time and didn’t do so well," he explained. "Since then I’ve been riding a lot more for a better chance this year. So psyched to head to the finals now!"
Last year’s Incline Club winner Jordan Prince took 2nd this time, with big lines over the boxes, a 720, and massive flairs. Though he didn't win, 2nd place will be enough to earn him a spot in Finals for the second year in a row. Erik Nilsen rode strong all day and earned himself 3rd place. Fast, flowing, and boosting big, Erik put down a 360 and no hander one foot can can on the box line and a tire grab t-bog over the spine.
The level of talent in the Junior Jam group was some of the highest the tour has seen and foreshadowed what was coming in the older group. 10-year-old Eddie Rovi won it for the 13 and under Junior Jammers with strong riding ability, flow and speed. Eddie laid down a superman seat grab on the step up, tuck no hander and no foot can.
