I have a lot of respect for riders who take a trick and push that move as far as they possibly can, the results are often amazing and truly help push our sport forward. Most recently, Hidenori Ishizaki continues to push the backwards backyard position as far as possible in his amazing ZAI12 that we featured just a few days ago and today…
Keelan Phillips continues to push the multiple nose manual g-turn to new horizons that was filmed in,as always with edits that I give the “Must Watch” tag I like to highlight what stood out for me.
00:19: Nose Manual fire hydrant whip one kick vadar scuff nose 360 whiplash to spinning half hiker, the execution and aesthetics of this line are so point!
00:42: Half cab nose to 1080 g turn nose fire hydrant whip vadar out. Arms of steel!
00:51: Possibly my favourite line, long carved nose wind into 360 nose vadar scuff to multiple ET nose g turns kicking the tyre on each 360 whip to spinning cliff to down whip tail whip out!
1:43: This line is so complex, multiple nose g turns without scuffs, then with, flow and style for days!Amazing edit that I have had to watch several times already to describe what he’s doing, thanks for this one Keelan! 2017 is already going off!
Amazing leftovers edit from Jeff Scheer’s 43-30 edit last night, here Jeff gives a lil’ info in the extras edit, plus you can check the 43-30 edit below also for reference. So good!
“Here’s some extra clips that I did not use in my previous 43-30 Video. All filming was from 2015. Some of it shows tricks leading up to what I included in 43-30, such as learning backwards stem boomerangs regular and opposite in order to hit the backwards stem boom rebate included in 43-40. Hope you enjoy! And if you have not seen 43-30, check it out…”
For this weeks throwback we go back to 2002 and a lil highlights section from OG Marton’s Trickstar 4 video, featuring Trevor Meyer, Hiro Morisaki, Effraim Catlow, a very young Adam Kun, Marton Szilagyi, Phil Dolan, and Albert Retey.
If you follow Matthias Dandois on instagram, you will have seen a few photographs from the rooftops of Paris a few weeks back, it turns the project the project he was working on was in collaboration with the famous Parisian spot “Le Perchoir” and it’s new music label “ten birds”. Hit play to check Matthias riding the best Parisian rooftops he could find.
Yesterday I spent the day travelling to Denver, Colorado for the second annual Battle in the Rockies contest via Toronto, Canada. This trip is the beginning of three weeks off work, ending just after Level Vibes. Last year’s BITR was one of the best and most fun events I have ever attended, with the riders all staying at James McGraw’s house, it really did have a great feel and it’s something I will remember forever. Will James ride with his broken ankle?
James picked me up from the airport, and we headed to his workplace/riding spot he calls the Tintadome for a quick session with a few locals. One of my questions was immediately answered, James is riding with a broken ankle, taped up styles, and killed it at his spot considering his ankle.
Martti,Moto and Joe Cicman arrive later on today, Simon O’Brien is already in town for his brothers wedding, Dub and Jason Plourde arrive Thursday! We should be heading over to the contest venue in Denver later today. It’s a lovely day here in the Rockies!Feedback was good last year from my daily updates, so check back for plenty of updates from BITR!
