PETER OLSEN RITUAL B SIDES from HERESY BMX on Vimeo.

I don’t know about you, but my brain is exploding right now with all the crazy Must watch edits dropping back to back. In under a week Peter Olsen has dropped two of the best edits of the year, this B Sides edit is not to be missed. Another man’s throwaway is another riders treasure. Mind blown.

Must Watch: Akihiko Takahashi / 20th Reverse / ReBirth

Featured

As we near ever closer to our 12th anniversary, let’s get back to regular updates after the amazing Pete Olsen edit for Heresy shook us all last Friday! And today, equally on measure is this amazing 20 years of reverse riding edit by the incredibly underrated Akihiko Takahashi! Mix in untouchable backwards riding style with a classic soundtrack that was used on Mike S’ Props Groundwork part, and you have a Must Watch edit. Much like Peter’s part there is so much to take in at just over 11 minutes, I’ll leave the description as this and let you make your own mind up. I’ll be grabbing other cuppa in a moment and taking this one in again on the big screen.
Much respect to Akihiko!!

Throwback Thursdays: Akihiko Takahashi / Sam Foakes / Effraim Catlow

Japan flatland session 2008 from Zion Bike Co. on Vimeo.

Tomorrow I celebrate 12 years of running Flatmattersonline, during this time of being not only furloughed from work and being injured. It has been a good time to reflect on those 12 years, my trip to Japan in 2008 with Sam Foakes really kickstarted FM. So this weeks TBT is dedicated to that tie and the unreal sessions with Sam, Akihiko Takahashi and all the Yokohama locals. Big thanks to Mislav from Zion Bikes for filming this. Memories!!!

Must Watch: Peter Olsen / Ritual

PETER OLSEN – RITUAL from HERESY BMX on Vimeo.

As I took my first viewing of Peter Olsen’s new “Ritual” edit, my mind was completely blown. How do I write about this I pondered to myself… It speaks volumes of how good this edit is, that it took me 3-4 views to truly digest what he was doing.
“Ritual” fuses together everything I love about flatland, the solitude feeling of the way in the way was filmed.
The insane riding level of untouched lines with years of depth going into each line with a liquid like effortless flow, the vibe of the edit that matches the Heresy brand direction, this edit screams “this is flatland at it’s very finest!”.
I would normally do a detailed description on this edit, but let’s change things up and discuss this one in depth in the comments section. Peter Olsen, Heresy BMX, filmers, Sevisual take a long bow, this is as good as it gets!!

Happy 50th Birthday James White

Johann Chan put this shirt fun edit together to celebrate James White’s 50th, by now you should have all watched his amazing “50 shades of Wgite” video”, if not it is playing at the tip of the site.

‘We shot these clips of James in Trafalgar Square last year, and it’s been sitting on an old phone ever since.
Even though there were many, many clips.
It was too good to waste.’
