As we go into a Tier 4 lockdown here in the UK (well most parts) it’s a good time to get back to the Flatmattersonline Exclusives! And Robert Victoria Kindly came through with the 60th episode. This is Robert’s second FM exclusive, and in this video Robert experiments with his new camera, really liked the old to the new twist with the sliding freak squeak whiplash to hitch line. Thanks Robert for coming through and getting the exclusives flowing again, who’s got the next clip?
As James White celebrates his 50th birthday, he does in it style with this amazing retrospective mix of his riding career so far, including input from the likes of Pete Brandt, Lincoln Blacksley, Amos Burke, Jesse Puente, Chase Gouin, Jason Forde, and many more. I am on the third watch now, and notice different things within his edit that had me stoked, and had me crying with laughter, straight up Flatland at it’s best!
There is only one edit to watch today!
Happy 50th birthday James!
What’s up everyone?
It’s been a minute since a fresh Flatmattersonline exclusive, and today we bring it back in style with one of the best to do it… Hoffman Bikes very own Matt Wilhelm!!
This exclusive kills two birds with one stone so to speak, its been a while since I have seen any Matt Wilhelm footage. Whilst we were judging the AFA Dream run contest , it came up in conversation that Matt was down to film an episode, and today he drops a brand new line that I have never seen before.
Ice Cream turbines on the bottom bracket, and a BB Ice Cream bike flip out in brakeless style that Matt suits completely. Hell yeah!!!
Thank you Matt for contributing, whose got episode 60?
What’s up everyone? Claude Hickman surprised me today with a fresh clip for episode 58 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives. Keeping the momentum going as we approach 60 episodes!
This is Claude’s second FM exclusive, and this is episodes features another double darkside line, this time from hitch to rear wheel backpacker, I believe they call it a fudge packer in the states (correct me if I am wrong) to peg wheelie lard yard into ice cream darkside to halfpacker. Super smooth style from CH, this comes from years of riding, skills to pay the bills.
Claude on that note has just launched his own “Flatland” clothing brand, hit him up on instagram for the tees, sweatshirt, hoodies and all that good stuff.
Thanks Claude for contributing, whose got episode 59?
We are back, episode 57 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives. It is pretty fitting today I am wearing a King of Concrete tee, ep.57 features Jean-Michel Chauvel from Guilliaume Le Conquerant over in Normandie, France just across the water from me here in Southsea, UK. Jean-Michel is a big supporter of the King of Concrete contest, and competed this year in the eFise, MOC, and AFA online contests, and I love this guys riding.
He has a unique flow to how he puts the tricks together, I would call these “pieces” of tricks put together in one clip with his unique pirouette style, that’s figure skating like. This is what flatland is all about, get out there and get creative. Jean-Michel is in his 50’s and showing no signs of slowing down, stoked he stepped up for episode 57.
Merci Jean-Michel for stepping up!!!
We have definitely slowed down as we approach 60 episodes, if you have a clip send it in. Don’t be shy, instructions on how-to take part are after Jean-Michel’s clip….
Whose got episode 58?
Flipping the script for episode 56, and why not? There are no posting schedule rules with Flatmattersonline exclusives…
Lalo Jimenez comes through a rad bar spinning g-roll type of deal for 56, and also the news that there is a world-wide online flatland jam going on tomorrow, hence the exclusive dropping tonight. I fired this one out right after a long day at work, link below to the jam!
Thanks Lalo for contributing whose got episode 57??
The godfather of UK flatland, James White comes through with Episode 55 after a slight interlude after Bruno Zebu’s amazing 54th edition!
James delivers a brand new move, he calls the “slide aid”. I used to do sliders a long time ago, in my teens and never dreamt of linking a slider with a boomerang. Whiteski being the true freestyler he is, delivers the goods and surprises us all the process.
Like Nice and Smooth once rapped, “this is how we take the old to the new”….
Thanks James for contributing, whose got episode 56?
We are back with episode 54 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives.
Today we have an absolute treat from one of my favourite riders, Bruno Zebu from Brazil. This cat has so much style on the some of the hardest switches, and he comes through with this insane halfhiker turbine pivot to opposite xft halfpacker and flows into a ridiculous line. These clips are getting absolutely insane as someone commented recently.
Thank you Bruno for contributing, who’s got episode 55?
Welcome back, today we have a real treat for you!
Trevor Meyer during the 90’s was the most prolific contest rider on the globe, and Trevor is still going strong as you will see in this 53rd episode of the Flatmattersonline exclusives!
Freshly baptised this week, Trevor comes through with an awesome bar spin ice cream line pivot into pumping inside switch-b, smooth as glass! Trevor in my opinion, is one of the best to ever touch a 20 inch freestyle BMX bike, his tricktionary is as deep as anyones in the game, so stoked he came through with an FM exclusive.
Thanks Trevor for contributing!
Whose got episode 54?
What’s up everyone? It’s been a busy week, juggling riding, work, judging e-fise and so on. But, we are back to it today! US flatland shredder, Tyler Gilliard came through with an amazing crackpacker whip line from episode 52 of the Flatmattersonline exclusives filmed at his workplace/dojo in Florida.
Tyler has such a fast style, great to watch, and delivers a banger for us all…
Thanks Tyler for contributing, who’s got episode 53?
