Paulo Gepulango – Original Ride-in?

Original Ride-in? from Paulo Gepulango on Vimeo.

Within flatland and perhaps BMX as a whole, it is brave to call out a trick as original or NBD etc. Paulo Gepulango just dropped this nice new clip with a steamboat fire hydrant step to backwards squeaker to crackpacker. I recall Viki Gomez doing a lot of stuff like this when he rode front brakes, but I don’t think I have seen it brakeless. Whatever the case, good to see you progressing Paulo!

  1. Very nice switch, Paulo’s riding is always great to watch! Not sure if this is an actual first for this specific ride-in or not, but I’d have to say though that, in general, I don’t think a trick should be regarded as new just because a rider doesn’t run brakes when doing it, since its often the case that riders with brakes don’t necessarily use them for every trick/link they do. Given his skill level, I’d imagine that if Viki was doing this same exact ride-in bitd, he could (and probably did) do it without tapping his brake at all. Not taking away anything from this clip at all though, it’s a dope ride-in regardless. =)

    • Yes bro your right, actually when we meet here in the philippines last time he said that my ride-in was original. So i was very surprised about it, then wondered if its true. And yeah if it is i am very happy for it. But if not still i really love this ride-in for its uniqueness. And that you so much my friend for your compliment.

      Much love and respect bro. 🙂

  2. Not sure that I ever saw Viki do this one before exactly, although it did remind me of his xfoot on the pedals straight to turbine crack packer ride-in from LandEscape A.

  3. I’v done this without the kick on the tyre, ill put a vid up on insta.
    It is a cool lil switch i’v not seen anyone do either.
