Fresh new edit out of Paul Dezeix who took some inspiration from the track he used and the artist, Frederic Robinson. Paul decided to push one concept for this video, the halfpacker, definitely a good way to progress. I really enjoyed this edit and watching the progression build throughout the course of the edit, the last pendulum halfpacker was nicely done at the 2:55 mark. Straight to the point!
Vans flew Matthias Dandois out for the #standwithscotty bike jam hosted by Ryan Guettler at the Van Skatepark in Southern California. Peep some great riding from Matthias, Gabe Weed, Ryan Russell and Bo Wade from the 1:06 mark all for a great cause.
Peep this new edit from the Quest team with clips taken from the teams instagram pages, featuring Pete Brandt, Danny Sirkin, Steve Lapsley, Jean Francois Boulianne, Jeremy Brosset, Mannie Nogueira, Gurvan Le Bloc’h, and Mark McGrade!
Amazing new edit from the talented Yu Katagiri who finished 3rd in the expert class at Flatark this year (you can check the run at the 3:41 mark and also don’t miss the incredible ice cream jump line using the same foot at the 2:50 mark! Thanks Zols ETM for this one!
Keisuke absolutely murders the front wheel in this super long line filmed in Kobe, Japan. As the link develops you think he’s going to ride out and he continues, amazing skills!
Photos/Trick descriptions: Manthos Ekteman & Giannis Caternellis.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since the last in-depth Flatmattersonline interview, but that sadly is a true story!
Many of you in the comments section of the site have requested an interview with Giannis, around that same time period people were asking, I was already putting wheels in motion to make that happen. Who better to bring back the interviews than Giannis Caternellis!
Who is he, where is he from, what is he all about, what’s his background? During the last 3-4 months that it took to put this together I have tried to dig as deep as possible into questions that I felt would get into Giannis personality and find out more about Giannis that I came to realise whilst making this interview, is a purist. He lives and breathes flatland, as a rider and as a fan, it’s no secret that putting these interviews is my favourite part of publishing FM. Grab a cuppa and enjoy this. Let’s get into this part 1 interview!
The Deco team just put together this really nice promo for Terry Adam’s signature pivotal seat. The idea is simple, get the seat and install it, film a clip, then pass the seat on to the next member of the team. Mannie Nogueira, Scott Weaver, Chad Degroot and Terry Adams all throw down for the promo!
On November 5th, a few days after the Flatark contest in Kobe, the Far East Cycles and IGI team headed to Yohohama and hosted a flatland jam over there with all the local scene. Hit play for an amazing edit by Yuki Itoh aka yukipkoproject, which combines awesome riding and communicates the dreamlike vibe of the jam.
Some of the standout clips for me:
Gonzalo Bellanti: Bar grab one handed whiplash to bar grab one handed turbine whiplash around the 00:49 mark. I know he’s done it before but it’s still a banger!
Jean William Prevost: Back wheel fury with two massive combos at the 1:44, power and flow for days.
Yuki Itoh: His spinning xft crack to pumping one handed hang ten line is one of the lines of the edit, already watched this line several times. Skills and style galore.
Really enjoyed this Mateus Beckmann vs Fagner Richter game of bike, that goes right down to the wire. Good stuff from these two brazilian shredders!
Nice recap on the DUG Round 3 contest in Melbourne, Australia with photo gallery and full results over on the BMX flatland Australia site:
