All about Heresy edits today, I somehow missed this one session edit from the amazing Matthieu Bonnecuelle. Nice to watch this one and see some different stuff than what you would see him do in a contest.
A few days ago, the nominees for the 2023 Nora Cup Flatlander of the Year nominees were announced:
Jean William Prevost.
Winner announced on Sunday night at the Nora Cup awards in Hastings, UK.
Dane Beardsley just hit the ball out the park with one of the best edits of the year.
There is so much depth in Dane’s riding, front and back wheel creativity with sweet intricate rideouts to add more of Dane’s own flavour, not to mention some wild street/skatepark clips.
Happy birthday Dane.
There’s so much to talk about, lets discuss this one….
Yasunari Ishijima aka JImalog comes through with an amazing edit full of complex x-foot lines with signature Jimalog smoothness. The x-foot crackpacker line at 2:26, followed by the ender is next level. Congrats Jimalog, and thanks for all you do for the flatland scene!!
It’s been a minute since some updates on the site, summer time has been a busy one for me. Today, we have some treats for you. Starting out with this Underground Kings of BMX Flatland edit featuring Shinichi Kiba, Keelan Phillips, and Gabe Kadmiri, great mix of styles. Well worth a watch!
Today, TA turns 40, and sent through this motivational edit to celebrate, Happy birthday Terry!
“Today I’m 40 and I’ve never been so grateful to be alive on my birthday. Four years ago I looked at myself in the mirror and I didn’t like what I saw. I had let myself go. I was eating all the wrong shit, I never worked out, and my riding was starting to suffer. I was heading down the wrong path. I told myself in that moment, my goal was to get in the best shape of my life before I turned 40. I didn’t wait until Monday to start.. I walked out my house and started running. I’m stoked on what I accomplished, but there’s more work to be done. I look forward to continuing the journey and I’m excited about the remaining years of my life. I’ll never truly be able to explain the amount of work I did to get where I’m at today. I did however figure out a few interesting details below.
In the last 4 years I’ve ⬇️
– Meditated 346 hours
– Worked out 1,040 days
– Did 6,240 pull-ups
– I’ve done 41,600 sit-ups
– Ran over 624 miles
– Ate 492 cans of tuna
– Woke up at 3:30AM 1,190 days
– Done around 59,500 pulled combos
Don’t ever let someone tell you something can’t be done because of your age, your situation, or any circumstance. It’s your life and your goals. Keep doing what makes you happy and keep pushing forward to get it all accomplished. Happy Birthday to me 🎥 Brock Gomez”
I have mixed emotions after watching Sebastian Grubinger’s new “Finale” edit, you can of course talk about the unmatched level of his riding, but the fact he’s losing his riding spot…..
This edit really communicates the feeling of a flatlander losing his spot, many of us I am sure can relate.
I’m sure I will be talking about this edit at the end of the year, go watch it!
“Heldenplatz has been my second home since I moved to Vienna 2000. Unfortunately the spot will be reconstructed and from what we know it won’t be rideable anymore. It hurts.
I spent the past months filming my last clips there. Now it’s over. It’s time to move on. It’s alright.”
I missed this one when it dropped, Mateus Beckmann is recovered and back from his knee injury and delivers a 8 minute part full of amazing flatland and street clips and blends the two so well. Don’t sleep on this, like I did. Welcome back Mateus!
Today is a good day on Flatmattersonline, let’s kick things off with something different. Matt Wilhelm teamed up with Dennis Schmelz using AI technology to bring us all something new and refreshing to watch!
Here’s a name we haven’t heard from a while here on Flatmattersonline. Joel Schallhorn was a regular feature on the site around 2018/19. Want to know more about Joel, read on below not to mention check out his unique riding style.
“I view my time in China as a hiatus from real riding. I was burned out in 2019, came home from a contract and put the bike in storage and moved to the mountains, off to beijing I took my dirt jumper. In time I got a stock street bike, just something to satiate the habit of rolling around on 1 wheel but I never took it serious for any real length of time in Beijing.
A street bike is made for street riding, not the rig of choice for anyone riding flat. I did a mix of all while there. I had spurts of motivation every few months where I’d go pretty hard and fight that uphill battle for hard tricks tech tricks on a street bike. I did it, it was hard, and I am proud of that. When I did ride I had fun but it wasn’t often. Hence there were only 2 edits from my time in Beijing.
Fast forward past the dark era I have my flatland bike again and living in Singapore. I’ve come to realize that that bit of street bike training has had some interesting benefit. I did end up adjusting to a street bike and dialed in some heavy stuff, coming back to to the flat bike there are tricks I haven’t done in those years that before we’re tremendously difficult and now are much easier and fluid.
Maybe street bike flatland is the equivalent to high altitude training? I don’t know. But this past weekend I worked on getting some baseline tricks back to move forward from. I wanted to test where I’m at after this hiatus, I’m pleased with the result of these few days and look forward to seeing what I’ll learn here in Singapore.
It’s good to be back!”
