Matt Wilhelm revisits his old riding spot where he rode as a kid at Brandt Park in Oak Lawn, Illnois 25 years later. Great idea for an edit, and amazingly enough, Matt was in a Hoffman Bikes t-shirt back in the day already and still is in 2019. Well worth a watch!
Great edit from the Battle in the Rockies pre jam by Anthony Schneidewind from the Colorado Springs Convention Centre with a halloween theme running throughout. That’s got to be one of the biggest contest areas ever, quality riding from all levels in this one. Enjoy!
You can perhaps forgive me for thinking with winter hitting the “Must Watch” edits were done for 2019, but how wrong I was. Dane Beardsley, one of the most skilled and underrated riders out there in my opinion just dropped a hammer of an edit that has already made my day.
Dane’s riding always strikes a chord with me, whether it’s the thought that goes into the ride on, and ride outs, the clips riding dirt and street. You can just see he loves BMX! Anyone else feel that or just me…
From the first ride in I knew this was going to be good, great imagination on the 180 hop tp x-up smoothie lands cross handed which sets him up for the cross handed whiplash to hitchhiker whip and scuff to backwards cross handed double backwards hitch juggler into swivel boomerang to x-handed half lash position and out! The detail on the cross handed throughout was bang on, what a start!
Throw in a few trails clips, at what looks like his house! And that 360 after the last set is sweet, you can see what I am saying about Dane just loving being on the bike and enjoying all sides of BMX.
At 00:56, I am still only on my third watch and this line is definitely the hardest to describe. Dane goes from a switch handed one handed cyclone position without his foot on the back peg I might add with both wheel on the ground jump pivot to rolling lawn turbine mega spin straightens out to dump truck jump with same foot to ice cream (are you following this?) one kick to two footed backyard body varial jump landing backwards wheelie, quick half bar out! Insane jumps in this one and once again the creativity on the intro and outdo are amazing!
1:28: Multiple x-fted whiplashes shove-it one kick to multiple backwards whiplashes, perfect technique. Love this clip!
2:03, is the last line that is off the chart and no doubt years of craft to be doing this. Dump jump round to backwards rolling ice cream to rope then into backwards straddle come out opposite side g-roll to ice cream back regular rope back to straddle back opposite g-roll to ice cream jump to peg wheelie bar flip out! What an ender!
Top marks on this one from Dane Beardsley! Wow, hitting the rewind throughout the day on this one…
I don’t recall posting this video before. Worth sitting down with a cuppa and enjoying the some of the riders from Brazilian flatland scene with footage gathered from 97-07. And the Leo Claro section at the 30:29 mark is still so good to this day, thanks to Jffe for sending this one in!
Spots for days in Chengdu, China, Zimmi Akhmad, Dan Hennig & Dustyn Alt enjoy some time cruising the city and finding spots outside of the contests in Chengdu, China.
Great footage from the archives, Ryuji Yammamoto, Kotaro Tanaka, and Akira Okamura both deliver awesome lines at the Pin League contest back in 2004.
I have been following “Cn Ym” for a few years now and he just dropped his annual edit. From the opening front and back side scuff squeaker to whiplash hit I really enjoyed this, music fits the riding perfectly. Really enjoyed this!
Its like a weekly routine, every friday the first edit I come across pretty much without fail is the latest update from Nick Watts! Not a bad way to get the updates flowing again after the 11 years Flatmattersonline anniversary. Love the half lash move around the 00:59 mark this one.
Anyone else notice the Greek flatlanders are on fire with edits right now, George Kikos is the next up. Always solid smooth rolling styles from George, enjoy!
Plenty of amazing xft hitch jump to hitch plus backwards backpacker switches in the 106th episode of Giannis Caternellis’ freestyler series. Ideal viewing on a rainy day in Southsea, thanks for sharing this Giannis!
