Who else, but Giannis Caternellis to drop a casual 10 minutes plus of fresh footage for the 84th episode of his Freestyler series. Love the teakettle step over xft elephant glide at the 00:47 mark, enjoy this one!
Who else goes back and searches for the Martti Kuoppa Junglerider clips on a regular basis, well if you are like me. You will be stoked today to see this amazing “In action” edit that still to this day hits so hard. One of the most progressive eras in modern flatland that I was really proud to be apart of, everything dropped in this is a highlight, go watch again and get hyped for your session today!
Much like Lee Musselwhite’s latest edit I can’t give out the Must Watch tag out twice, but you already know this John Yull MOC Complilation is worth a watch and then a rewind. What an amazing year for John, the tailwhip to spinning weedwacker decade out at the 1minute mark is one of my favourite lines of the year. Absolutely beautiful to watch, what’s your favourite line from John’s MOC entry? Let’s hear it in the comments section.
The dates for the annual Bike Days contest have been confirmed for 2018. 4-6th May in Solothurn, Switzerland is the place to be for one of the best contests on the calendar.
Five years into riding flatland, Yu Katagiri already possesses god like skills on the back wheel. Just go and watch this edit right now, jaw dropping good! 12 years old and pro level techniques, this year he took the Am title at Voodoo and Flatark. You will see why!
James White is like flatland royalty, so when you see on Facebook that the man is dropping a new edit with a classic Dorkin’ reference to boot you know it’s going to be good. This one hit me in a different way than previous “Me summer 2016 bits” and “The adventures of James White on the wheels of steel” did, James hit a spot that I feel has been missing in flatland edits over the past few years despite regularly posting on instagram these lines remain fresh.
The emotion I got out of watching this was like a Dorkin’ part watched for the first time with no idea what’s going to go down, mixing all the the flatland eras James has gone through into a 3:38 edit and have this real hype quality that James seems to always have. And the major factor James always seems to communicate is that this was pure fun and returns t the feeling of watching a video part we used to pay for back in the day…
As always with Must watch edits I like to talk about what stood out to me:
– The backwards xft peg wheelie full scuffless gerator body varial at 00:43.
– The triple two footed and dump truck walkarounds at 1:21 and 1:46. This is years of riding to get these so smooth, amazing control!
– The no handed sliding hitchhiker (what do you call that?) to no handed pivot out at 2:26, creating something new out something old. Pure class.
– Full body varial back wheel sliding half lash at 2:53 in the wet no less.
– My favourite line of the edit without a doubt, the whiplash body varial whiplash out at 3:12 is one of the best tricks of the year hands down!
– And the ender, is pure skills. Opposite dump pivot xft backwards ice cream pivot regular dump out at 3:23.
Hitting the rewind again, great stuff from Whiteski!
Getting back to normal post routine today, and Bert Ribul just sent in this nice raw edit killing it in Mexico whilst he was out there doing shows for BMW. Look out for the hang ten pivot backwards facing spinning circle k type spin line at 00:39 and the stomped half cab whopper at 1:25 is so good!
It’s been a long time coming, three years in fact since my last edit with Ollie Denny. During that time, I have been battling injuries off and on the bike, it’s been hard to get any rhythm. Ironically I just crashed on my roadbike a few hours before we filmed this.
Matti Hemmings popped down this past weekend, and the session quickly turned from “Let’s get a few tricks” to “might as well film an edit Effraim?”. In one session I did 7 combos I was pretty happy with, the ender though got corrupted. So That will have to wait for the next project.
If you listened to my interview with Scott O’Brien you will have heard me talking about this idea of releasing clips like EP’s before the LP. Let’s call this the One Session EP.
Thank you Matti Hemmings for taking the time to film in this “One Session” edit.
Giannis Caternellis celebrates his 34th birthday in style with 34 combos in his 83rd Freestyler episode. Happy birthday Giannis, thanks for sharing your riding once again and have a great day!
You might argue the biggest success story of the AFA coming back, is the platform it has given for Austin Luberda to grow. This guys progression and flow over the last few years is incredible, his multiple scuffless dump truck body varials are butter like. And the “My Bloody Valentine” fits his riding style really well, hell yeah Austin! Stickied for the day, go watch this!
