Year end 2016 from James McGraw on Vimeo.
If you have been paying attention to the Lookback features I am doing for the 2016 Flatmattersonline Year End Awards then you will know James McGraw had a great year, one of his most progressive yet! Here’s what the man himself had to say:
“2016 has been the best year for me, I won 5 events as well as year end title for the AFA. It has been a year filled with Turbines, backyard variels and Crosswalks. I started this year with Scuffgate a Challenge to do my combos with minimal or no scuffing at all. I put a lot of work in to what I call my no kick rollback turn down to underside / ice cream. this trick is one I started 7 years ago with a kick in, now it is scuffless and I have achieved my goals of many no kick combos as well as a few minimal kick combos. The Last line I took my rollback turndown to the other side of the bike using my pedal step walk around. This challenge was the hardest thing I personally I have ever done and the best part is, I have been trying for weeks to end this video with this combo and it happened on the last day of 2016 finishing off what truly has been my best year ever. I am so grateful for all my sponsors and friends that support my craziness thru out the year. I hope you like this.”
