I’ve been sat on these clips on my phone for a few months now, rather than dump them for no one to see. I thought I would try my hand at a raw edit filmed in practise in between judging duties, from the Fise Montpellier event featuring Yu Shoji, Sietse van Berkel, Matthias Dandois, Kio Hayakawa, Toon Pakphum, Masato Ito, and Moto Sasaki.
Congratulations to Matthias Dandois, winner of the Never Off The Battle contest this weekend followed by Yu Katagiri and Yu Shoji. That’s two wins on back to back weekends for MD. Props to Dani and Alex Jumelin putting this one on, once again this looked like one of the best events so far this year.
French takeover at Omarisquino in Vigo, Spain with Matthias Dandois taking the win followed by Alex Jumelin & Anatole Rahin in the third place podium spot! That contest floor looks like the best I’ve seen in a long time! Next week it’s the Never Off The Battle and the King of Concrete it’s a busy contest season!
Congratulations to Kio Hayakawa who took the top spot here at the Fiseworld/UCI contest in Montpellier. Matthias Dandois turned it on working the crowd to a party tune and riding flawless to take a well deserved second place going into tomorrow’s final.
Moto Sasaki took the third place with his signature backwards spinning style, top 8 make tomorrows final. It’s going to go off!
Congrats Terry Adams, qualifying first in Sunny Montpellier here at Fiseworld. Matthias Dandois also rode incredible, with Yu Shoji and Toon close behind! Semi finals on Saturday. Top 16 make semi finals!
Yesterday was a good day for flatland, the return of flatland to the X Games after a 19 year hiatus. They started just like every other so far, you collect the bag with your covid 19 test on your door handle, get the test done.
Daily procedure, it is what it is. Boring part out the way, ready to enjoy the rest of the day.
From X Games alternate to X Games Gold, what a story for Kio Hayakawa who saved his best line for the final hitting a ridiculous blender 360 bike flip back to time machine ending with a downside foot jam decade out!
What a moment for Alex Jumelin winning his battles with Yohei Uchino and Moto Sasaki. Alex pulled his new 1080 nose manual to take a well earnt second place spot.
In third place, Moto Sasaki pulled one of the lines of the contest in his third place battle against Matthias Dandois, with a crazy hang 5 pivot to Xft crackpacker turbine into Xft backwards spinning crackpacker and ended with an amazing halfhiker pivot to opposite Xft halfpacker backwards hitch out.
That was intense! I will post a little repo tomorrow! Flatmatters at the X Games here in Japan, what a contest!!
