Throwback Thursdays: Circle Cow 2008

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.

Episode 11: Flatmattersonline Exclusives with Mates Tucek

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.
