BELIEVE IN A WHEEL from HERESY BMX on Vimeo.

I’m a big fan of Sebastian Grubinger’s riding, who isn’t I hear you say… I am also a big fan of riders taking a concept or style and pushing as far as they can. We start the week off here at Flatmattersonline with a banger with a nice message from the man himself:

“Ever since I started riding winter has always been my most progressive time of the year. Very much looking forward to a big change in my life this year in May, I started to go out in December to work on some tricks I had in mind for a while. This year’s Austrian winter wasn’t too bad and temperatures around 0°C or wet floor couldn’t slow down my motivation. Early February the list of ideas was worked off.
For sure, there are always more ideas, more lists,… this never ends. But there are also more winters … and I’ll be out again, whatever conditions, and believe in a wheel.”

From the opening clip at 00:33, the pivot backwards ice cream round opposite side to backwards backyard up two footed pedal backwards manual to degroot undertaker right across the floor at the legendary Heldenplatz in Vienna. A spot that is deep in the history of flatland with the Michael Sommer videos and of course Sebastian, Alexis Desolneux, Trickstar videos and many others. The first clip to any edit is so important, and in my mind can make or break a video part, this delivers and whets the appetite.

Moving on, there’s some experimental ideas thrown in between what I thought were the bangers. Namely the nothing jump on the backwards backyard at 00:58. Always a treat to see riders not afraid to try something new and be different.

At 1:06, one of the best clips of the edit in my first few watches, I literally screamed “Oh yeah!!!” whilst I watched the final straddle-roni exit. The line is a pivot backwards ice cream round opposite side two footed backwards backyard straddle-roni exit out, which had a nice warm up fro what was to come at 00:49. This is years and years of riding to layer the moves and control like this, I feel we have been blessed this past week with firstly Akira Okamura’s amazing part and now Sebastian’s, yet they so different.

2:08, this line much like the 1:06. I screamed “Wow!” and I am pretty sure you will do too, absolutely beautifully crafted from the opening half lash forward g-roll backwards opposite ice cream backwards backyard to degroot undertaker out! So good, shit that might be my favourite line. This is true highly crafted flatland right here.

The level and energy is building on every clip, the speed and execution of the line at 2:54 is jaw dropping. Backwards facing manual to double backwards backyard walk around degroot undertaker out!

It keeps getting better and I love how Sebastian is layering these lines as he builds his skill base, you can almost see what’s coming yet its unvisited territory and the final line at 3:14 kind of left with a feeling of what is to come in the future. All laced to a surprise Motorhead track that I would never have guessed would fit Sebastian’s riding style, flatland is full of surprises and that is one of the many things that keep us all going. Love that Sebastian battled the elements to get this done, zero degrees and look what is going down.
Back to watch this one again!
