MATTHIEU BONNECUELLE – GROW from HERESY BMX on Vimeo.
Starting a big week on Flatmattersonline with a Must Watch edit that really did bring a smile to my face. I feel like Heresy rider, Matthieu Bonnecuelle has a mystic to his riding that always draws me into watching his riding and that feeling of curiosity as to what he is doing.
When you combine Matthieu’s unique riding style and Tom Sevisual on editing duties, the golden formula is there. Why change it? Heresy continually get this on point.
Let’s discuss this edit:
At the 00:18 mark, Double turbine whiplash with a cheeky hang ten pause and downside whip jump to pedals thrown in to make you hit the rewind button a few times to understand it.
After several watches of this edit, I think the line at 00:30 is my favourite. Matthieu puts a nice detail on a regular trick, turbine steam where he changes his stance foot to the opposite side and hand, then throws an stalled track stand still stood in steam position then with a quick scuff steam throws a bar scoot round the bars into backwards facing whiplash!
The line at 00:52 is a difficult one to describe as I am not sure what you call the name, Matthieu begins on the left side of bike in a cross foot one footed circular spin then switches to x-ft inside steam without holding bars then with a quick fake whiplash motion jumps through the bike round to steam and spins a right side track stand out.
At 2:36, pumping backwards circular spin kick pedal to manual cross over to no handed x-ft pumping peg manual, as with all the tricks in this edit. It is really refreshing to see a rider dare to be different, and express himself and all with a really graceful style to boot.
What a motivating edit to start the week…..
