Autumn is here and it is the season for Must Watch edits! Today we get a real treat from Sebastian Grubinger filmed by Sevisual at the Messe riding spot in Vienna. Over the past year or so, Sebastian has been focussing a lot on back wheel riding, and the backwards two footed walkaround backyard variations variations in his latest edit are absolutely ridiculous. From the opening line at 00:45 this edit hits hard, hit play and enjoy this amazing level of modern day flatland riding!
