2:12 of more lost footage from the incredible Mateus Beckmann, the second edit from this talented Brazilian in a week! This episode, contains both flat and street footage. The switch foot pedal 5 ender at 1:52 stood out to me in this one.
Always a treat to watch Brian Tunney ride, and his monthly updates are running like clock work. In this March 2020 episode, Brian experiments with a whole bunch of backwards hitch, backwards elbow glide and dump truck variations. Thanks for sharing Brian!
rad footage from the archives to start our Friday posts, today is going to be a good day! Back wheel flow from Takeda (sorry don’t know his surname). What I do know is the Degroot undertaker line at 00:41 is so good and the second run is opposite side from the first run!!!
Great blast from the past for this weeks TBT, the Circle Cow contest on the suburbs of Paris was always a great event. Tons of quality riding in this one from the likes of Raphael Chiquet, James White, Alex Jumelin, Matthias Dandois (Steam jump over frame, boomerang to halfpacker at 2:13!), Sam Foakes (the line at 4:11!), and many more. Go watch this, loved these edits from Global Flat back in the day.
If you didn’t already know, Mates Tucek is one of the most skilled riders in the game right now. Mates can do so many tricks, and his tricktionary grows by the week it seems.
He went in a refreshing direction for this 11th episode of the FM exclusives, that showcases some of the skill I am talking about. Pulling a trick opposite, then into regular. Not something you see everyday, thanks Mates for taking the time to do this.
Whose got the next clip?
Matthias Dandois just launched his own podcast, with the help of Red Bull. For the first episode of the What Does It Take podcast, Matthias went to London to meet Danny Macaskill. He sat down to talk about Danny growing up in Scotland, being a bike mechanic, having success from one day to another, trying tricks hundreds of time, having multiple injuries, spending days to film a trick, working on the craziest projects, dealing with fear.
Matthias also spent the day riding, and having lots of fun with Danny in London.

Plenty of positive news at the moment, Martti Kuoppa just launched his own parts brand under the Master of Creativity label, with a view to giving back to the progression of flatland! So far, he has his signature 33/45mm stem, pegs, and bars that come in 8,5″, 9″, 9,5″, 10″ sizes. Head over to the MOC site, link below.
Peep this stylish new move from the 2019 Flatmattersonline award winner, Ryo Katagiri. All the steez on the one footed backwards spinning backyard, and that body varial out! Great to see Ryo posting clips….
Flat Street at it’s finest right here in this amazing “Lost Clips” edit from Mateus Beckmann. The last clip: hop up the curb 180 backlash to 90 degree wall ride 270 out. Enough of my description, just go watch it!
Feels like a minute since I have come across any footage from Saudi Arabia’s finest, Khaled Huerta. Enjoy this front wheel clip!
