Last summer Anatole Rahain & Gabriel Gallon organise a Flatland road trip in France with Fabien Stephan, Romain Dodelier, Kevin Jacob, Gurvan Lebloc’h and many other french riders. Lot of good riding and nice vibes in this one, enjoy!
The level went up several notches for the final round of the 2016 Master of Creativity contest, so amazing to see every rider push their level, and ultimately bring a whole bunch of new tricks to flatland! Here is the 13th through till 6th place edit Martti Kuoppa just put together, so proud to be involved in this amazing event for flatland that has without a doubt brought the most progressive riding of the year out and motivated us all! Respect to everyone!!
My personal favourite lines:
Forkone: Fire hydrant chick whips stem lash at 00:28.
Kevin Jacob: Nose stemlash nose g-turn at 00:58.
Hidenori Ishizaki: Xft pedal backwards facing backyard jump to pegs backwards backyard degroot undertaker out at 1:07.
Sakis Doumas: Hitch darkside to no footed dump truck kneeling on pedal at 1:51!
Will Redd: The Mix of the old school with Xft forward side glide to the contemporary 360 pivot to halfpacker + the following elbow glide turbine line is so good!
Sean Fontenot: Xft cab line to decade off the pedals around the 2:57 mark!
James White: Xft lawn flip gliding gerator to whiteski smith decade to xft hitch juggler flip back to xft lawn gliding gerator to whiteski decade out at 3:06!
Kazuya Hirayama: The opening xft backward spinning lawn stubble duck to gliding gerator to forward death truck out at 3:40 is beautiful! Followed by backwards opposite spinning lawn direct to pedal death truck! Wow!
Etienne Taraud just dropped this nice 9:16 long edit from the 6th edition of the Astrolabe contest featuring the likes of Matthias Dandois, Quentin Pelorson, Alex Jumelin, Kevin Meyer, Kevin Jacob, Dez Maarsen, Joris Bretagnolles, Jeremy Brosset, Fabien Stephan, Gurvan Le Bloc’h and many more. Enjoy!
Tom over at Sevisual just hit me up with this great lookback edit from the Ninja spin contest in Onet-le-Château, France 2011. Featuring great riding from Adam Kun, Matthias Dandois, Yohei Uchino, Moto Sasaki, Dub, Kevin Jacob, Alex Jumelin, Dez Maarsen, Thomas Noyer, Charles Paty and many more!
We started the last month of the year with this sick xft pedal turbine mega spin opposite foot decade clip out of Jason Plourde.
On December 2nd, Alberto Moya published this really nice edit from the jam the day after the Com’in Lyon contest a few weeks back featuring Alexis Desolneux, Charles Paty, Fabien Stephan, Alberto Moya, Kevin Jacob, Mates Tucek and Matthieu Bonnecuelle. Definitely worth a watch!
Joel Schallhorn has been progressing a ton since his return from China back to his home in Denver, Colorado. Joel definitely stands out to me as he rides so differently than almost anyone I can think of, in this edit you will see lots of new opposite bar flips, gadget whips variations, and a fun new no footed steam holding the stem (3:57 + backwards variation) that was inspired by Martti Kuoppa at a Tintadome session at BITR last month. Really enjoyed this edit, keep on shredding Joel!
