Much like Nick Watts, Kio Hayakawa is on fire! It really is hard to keep up with the instagram updates, his amazing full part on Landscapes 3 and now this amazing Welcome to Colony BMX part!
So many creative bangers in this one from the opening line with a switch foot ice cream pulled into switch foot forward g- roll jump to two footed backyard half turbine jump to pedals that begins at the 00:03 mark! So progressive!
The very next line Kio further develops the two footed backyard jump, now jumping out with the body varial to peg wheelie (00:36) back into an ice cream line. This kid is pushing things hard right now!
The fourth and last line play with a. similar concept, pivot into two footed pedal ice cream ucchie flip to mega spin pivot ice cream pivot blender walk round out! Wow, Kio puts himself right up with fellow Japanese shredders, Yoehi Uchino, the Katagiri brothers and like the Katagiri brothers, so young and the future is so bright. Great pick from Colony to join the team, will he conquer the international contest circuit, only time will tell….
Instagram edits seem to be on the rise this year, Dez Maarsen has a huge back of tricks and great depth in front and back wheel riding. The halfhiker 360 pressure flip to halfpacker line at 5:52 is a classic from Dez, this one isa. good watch start to finish!
Nice to see an edit out of Deco’s head honcho Chad Degroot this morning, from the backwards wheelie balancing knee on the seat (kneelie?) and the bar flip hang 10 to messiah. Really enjoyed this short edit, good stuff from Chad.
You can’t stop Nick Watts at the moment, three edits already since Landscapes 3 dropped! So much as always to take in with Nick’s riding, a lot of details to enjoy in this one. And a great start to our week here on Flatmattersonline!
One post today, and it’s dedicated to Scott Hagnas who just celebrated his 53rd birthday and is still progressing and learning new things up in Portland, Oregon. I grew up watching the Infection videos that Scott put together, and this year it was awesome to finally meet Scott at the One Love Jam. Scott spent this year working on tricks he never bothered to learn, and this 53rd birthday edit is dedicated to this. Really enjoyed this, and sure you will do too.. Happy birthday Scott!
Giannis Caternellis missed the deadlines for Doses 8, so Freestyler #105 is Giannis’ missed part from Doses 8 which we posted last week. Really like the darkside variations Giannis is developing at 00:13 and 6:12, and as ever a huge trick bag. Enjoyed this one and I am sure you will do also….
