Two Must Watch edits in a day?! Effraim’s firewall has been broken, in the comments section someone commented about Matthias Dandois vs Mateus Beckmann earlier. Well you didn’t have to wait long, except this is all flatland….

You could be forgiven for thinking after the busy year travelling, contests, shows, sponsorship appearances, travelling for modelling contracts and much more that Matthias Dandois would take a break after the UCI World Championships but no…

Matthias is over in Hawaii for a Vans trip, and has been putting in work. I was lucky enough to get a preview and I have to admit I didn’t jump at the email right away. I thought to myself, oh this will be a lifestyle video I will check in a bit.

Once I checked it I was hitting the rewind again and again, from the opening junkyard turbine hop into hang 5 to spinning cliffhanger at the 00:43 mark I knew this wasn’t going to be what I had expected and I stoked to be proved wrong.

And it continues with great editing and the soundtrack fits nicely to, the following switch foot no handed hang 5 (not a plastic man) into a move I called the “elastic man” is so damn good at the 00:58 mark, great to see Matthias pushing himself and his natural talent shines through.

1:13: Steam to teakettle switch to opposite fork wheelie spin (that had me saying please go to spinning hitch) and guess what he did!! Been waiting to see this one for a while and stoked to see this flow, style for miles.

1:38: G turn rollback flail to steam, will this be in Matthias’ contest runs next year. Only time will tell. What I do know is its exciting to see what he has been working on out of the contest arena.

2:03: Possibly my favourite of the whole edit, whips into opposite spinning fork wheelie and casually bar scoots into backwards spinning one footed halfpacker with one out under the chainring/BB into halfpacker, absolutely beautiful move. When flatland is this good you don’t need to draw out the combo, this is flat out amazing. In and out, job done!

2:23: Another contender for move of the edit, backwards carving manual jump to backwards frame nasal and winds into backwards pumping one handed frame mega spin, yes!!!

4:31: No handed xft spinning crackpacker step no handed to switch footed no handed halfpacker foot on the chainring (I’m not even sure what to call this!).

What an edit, its great to see Matthias at the top of his game contributing to the artform not only in amazing contest performances but edits like this in a short time in Hawaii. What’s your favourite move in this edit? One of the best days of the year for content without a doubt that’s for sure!
