On September 5th 2014, I published Benjamin Hudson’s amazing Welcome to Far East Cycles part, which announced him to the flatland world. Over the last four years we have all watched Benjamin grow into one of the most stylish flatlanders on the planet and in terms of being light footed on the bike I don’t think anyone else comes close.
From 2014 to 2018, Benjamin Hudson spent some time in Budapest, Hungary working on this “Done Deal” edit with the equally talented Tom @ Sevisual. The style of Tom’s filming, editing, music choice compliment Benjamin’s riding perfectly, like all Must Watch edits I like to highlight my favourite parts and talk in some detail about what’s going on.
1:09: Direct jump from regular riding position to inside craving x-ft steam xft Karl position not touching seat x-ft fire turbine bar scoot to full bar bunnyhop exit! Absolutely perfect execution.
1:27: Direct jump from regular riding position to McCircle turbine foot jam body varial to two footed front yard shove it two footed x-fted front yard pivot to inside Karl position jump to pedals out, so much steeze. I keep thinking back to his breakout video as mentioned above, and the layers that are now apparent in his riding to be at this level right now.
2:07: The longest line of the video, and the flow in this, the style, everything about this just brought a smile to my face. I wish I didn’t have to go to work today for 12 hours, E just wants to go and ride.
2:58: Saving the best till last, hands backward nose manual to fire hydrant turbines bar scoot fire turbine jump bar into tea kettle (never seen this switch before!) to x-ft pumping halfpacker pivot whiplash to jump lash x-ft inside steam into xft hang ten pivot crackpacker (no touching the seat in any of this by the way- think about that!) half whip to two footed front yard pivot xft steam (he’s still going!) foot jam jump pedals out!
Absolute instant classic with the collaboration of Benjamin “Benji Benji” Hudson and Tom at Sevisual, the last two Must Watch edits in my opinion some up modern day progressive flatland really well right now. Go watch this, drop Benji and Tom a comment and show some love. This is beautiful!
