Transworld – Network VHS\Flatland Section

Chad Johnston contributed a sick flatland section featuring Pete Brandt, Martti Kuoppa, Andrew Faris, Chad J, Terry Adams and Simon O’Brien to the 2004 Network DVD. This may or may not have gone under the radar, from the opening pedal 5 intro by Chad this is so good. The riding stands up to this day, as Chad selects some of his favourite clips. My personal favourites were Simon O’Brien’s backwards half packer kick flip line at 1:53, Pete Brandt’s multiple half karl bar flips at 2:19, Martti Kuoppa’s xft hitch kick flip to regular hitch at 2:48. Stoked to watch this one again and suggest you do to!
