After much gnashing of teeth, my editorial vote for the 2015 Flatmattersonline edit of the year goes to James White for his epic “James White and the adventures on the wheel of steel’ edit that in my opinion ticked every box I look for in an edit and smashed one out of the box too, no music, this was purely about the content.
Flatland in 2015/16 for me is all about details, and the godfather of UK flat gets it better than anyone. The revisited bike flip bunnyhop around the 00:23 mark nailed cleaner blew my mind, it’s not too often we see a totally brand new trick anymore. Not to mention the stationary body varial, that probably had us all wondering. Why has no one see done that? The best ideas are like that! Congratulations James, you definitely blew the Must watch firewall off!
S&M team mate, Pete Olsen is my runner up for edit of the year, who like James ticked all the boxes I look for and admire in the modern era of flatland.
Look for interviews with both James and pete in the near future here on FM!
