Two Must watch edits in a day, going soft? Not at all, the 2016 Master of Creativity without a doubt has brought the highest level of the year. Congratulations to Pedro Melo who ended taking the final round followed by George Manos, and John Yull, Mateus Beckmann and Thomas Noyer!
Personal standouts for me:
Thomas Noyer: Multiple front yard turbine whiplashes directly to backwards spinning halfpacker at 00:09, one of the moves of 2016!
Mateus Beckmann: Bars backwards X hand half cab foot jam decade at 00:40 + xft backwards pedal manual to decade out no foot jam at 00:57 and the banger if that wasn’t enough: backwards whiplash jump full bar to back pegs foot jam decade out at 1:00! Incredible stuff from Mateus!
John Yull: What a year for John, fresh back from a great performance at Flatark and killing it in every round of MOC! The opening double decade to smith is hard with brakes, but brakeless at 1:09! And it continues with an amazing footage decade to opposite weedwacker stall switch to regular weedwacker stall switch to foot jam decade out at 1:18 and the absolute banger is also like Thomas’ one of the moves of the year, steamboat to backwards bar split decade at 1:31! So good!
George Manos: The opening xft no handed backwards nose manual at 1:44 is another contender for trick of the year, is that a category this year in the FM awards? And the subtle pedal switch mid no handed pedla 5 inside the bike to regular foot no handed pedal had me hitting rewind straight away, did i see that right? Watch at 2:01 and be amazed!!!
Pedro Melo: What a year also for Pedro Melo, who delivered the goods in the final round to take the win at the most progressive contest of the year!Opening with the surfer g-turn at 2:11 I knew this was going to be a string entry, but the one footed grinding hitch kick flip hitch at 2:23 blew me away! WTF!!! And the surfer nosewheelie into brakeless pinkys surfer out, so creative! Pedro is the man!
What an amazing contest, that truly delivered what it was intended to do. Congratulations to everyone that took part and helped take flatland to a better place! Just beautiful!!
