Starting the week off with a banger with Austin Luberda, I have had the pleasure over the last five years at Battle in the Rockies of watching Austin come through the ranks from Amateur to now modern day a top professional rider that has a shot of taking the win every time he competes.
If you are familiar with Austin’s riding, which I hope you are. You will be aware the man is blessed with natural flow, over the last few years Austin has added his own style and unique lines and movements to this flow. This edit “Autumn flow” hits hard from the very beginning and contains a scary pivot move that Austin makes look easy (which I will talk about in a moment. As with Must watch edits as I didn’t really talk about James Whites’ last video I will resort back to familiar territory and highlight what I liked about this edit.
1:07: The flow and the intricate switches in this line, caboose body varial without kicking and ending in the x-ft straddle pedal time machine! Super good!
2:14: Lung spin / one handed time machine body varials without touching the tyre. I don’t believe I have seen this variation done before and always with Austin’s riding, so stylish!
3:05: For me the move of the edit and something I was thinking I would never see, if you learnt the scuffing version of this back in the day you will know how difficult this is. Austin of course in 2018 is doing this junkyard turbine blindside body varial to time machine (switch handed) without a hint of scuffing. One of the moves of the year right here! Take a bow Austin, blown away!
