Must Watch! Simon O’Brien – Colony BMX

This is somewhat of a different “Must Watch” than I normally do as this video for Colony BMX dropped about a month ago on Facebook and I wasn’t able to post it on the site. So it doesn’t have the same impact as a video you haven’t already seen but equally there is so much good stuff within this edit I had to give it the “Must watch” tag. And is also even more amazing when you consider his health problems, so good to see Simon back and firing!

Standouts for me are:

-the quick blender out opposite side I’ve been waiting to see for years at 1:16.

-forward karl jump to backwards halfpacker turbine forwards line at 2:10.

– Fire hydrant decade mega spin to Edgar P time machine line at 2:50.

Must Watch! George Manos / Dayrkness

DAYRKNESS from HERESY BMX on Vimeo.

A real treat today out of Heresy’s George Manos! George continues to push the pegless direction in his riding to new levels in his new “Dayrkness” edit. I’m bit late posting this as Vimeo was down last night, standouts for me after a few watches are a couple things I have never seen before. A lot of the combos George is doing have no name other than perhaps what he might call them, I’m several watches in right now and still hitting the rewind on the pegless whiplash at 00:12, and combos with amazing foot to tyre switches technique at 00:51, 1;06 stood out to me! Great to see pushing George continue to pushing pegless riding to new heights, 100% originality right here, and so much style too!

Matthieu Bonnecuelle is pushing flatland into new areas, and it was no surprise to me that he was voted Breakthrough Rider of the Year in the 2015 Flatmattersonline Year end Awards. Now in 2016, he is already starting the year with a NBD, do I really have to tell you to hit play! My mind is blown yet again by this amazing talent from Southern France!

Must Watch! Dominik Nekolny – Progression 2

Second clip into the year for Dominik Nekolny, and things are getting out of hand already as you might expect! Coming out of the xft hitch body varial with enough speed and straight enough to throw in pivot to backwards backpacker pivot back to xft hitch without touching the bars and continue the link ending with xft hitch body varial is technically so hard and Dom does it perfect! This may be just a clip, but deserves your attention, wow!
