Friday 13th September 2019 shall go down as a memorable day, today I woke up with anticipation for James White’s new edit “Eye of the Tiger”. After the Rocky hype videos all week, I was thinking yesterday, this is a dangerous game he’s playing here, then I thought stop it Effraim. This is James’, this has to be amazing it’s Whitey and he wouldn’t hype like this otherwise.

7am comes around and I didn’t have to wait long, James has already posted, and boy does this not disappoint.

Time and time again I say this, but James does really have that Midas touch and this edit feels once again like I am watching a Dorkin’ part for the first time.
There’s a lot to take in, during this 4 minute plus part, but a couple of things stood out to me right away. Number one, and most importantly it’s evident and refreshing to see James is having fun, cliche as it is to say. That is what it’s all about and love the way James reinvents himself every year, secondly the camera work. I am not sure what he has going on, but a moving camera whilst it appears it’s only James at the spot. I want to know more!

Thirdly, and the crucial ingredient, the riding. There are a couple of lines here that are game changers. James gets widely copied over the years, and I am pretty much you will see it once again after this edit gets widely shared across social media.

00:21: Flip, tyre grab ice cream, bike flip out (that flip out is tasty!) and what I love here is James shows a variety of concepts around that idea again at 1:07 with a half lash in and gerator body varial out and at 1:32 to James’ smith decade variation out!

2:13: Without a doubt my favourite line of the edit, here he takes an existing Whiteski line and makes it new with the concept of holding the head tube only and the execution gets no better.

At 2:57, there’s a similar idea but switches to opposite ice cream and pivot backwards switch foot dump out. There’s way more we can highlight, let the comments roll as I am sure they will.

Absolutely amazing, like a fine wine. James just gets better and better, need some motivation? This is it right here, a banging Must Watch, top marks Whiteski!
