What an amazing start to the year! There are plenty of amazing diverse flatland edits being dropped weekly, after going through a years worth of posts multiple times for the Flatmatters Online 2013 Awards it made sense to do some kind of review at the end of the month this year. The Must Watch category has become a big feature of Flatmatters so it made sense to showcase the Must Watch edits of each month. So let’s begin with January!

It was fitting that the first Must watch edit of the year went to Flatmatters editorial vote for Rider of the Year 2013! Mateus Beckmann continues where he left off, plenty of new whopper/decade variations – check 1:59 Rollback candybar stem decade anyone? Enjoy this incredible talent do his thing! Flatland is all the better for it!

If that wasn’t enough, Shintaro Misawa added another Must Watch edit! I could watch Shintaro ride all day, smooth as glass liquid flatland right here!

MATSUDO YEAR END JAM 2013 !! from JIMALOG1985 on Vimeo.

When this edit came through, I just knew it would be amazing! Everything about this Matsudo year end jam edit screams fresh, fresh, fresh!!!! From youngsters, Yu dropping a mega spin to perverted, Kato’s stalled xft g-roll flip to pedal caboose, Akira Okamura’s nose wheelie bar out, and Hotoke’s last combo at 11:19!!! There is so much to enjoy and motivate you right here, give this one a rematch. Don’t you wish you had a scene like that!

When Matthias sent me an advance preview of the new edit I felt blessed. MD definitely sent out a message with this Welcome to La Creamerie edit! High energy, and incredible riding that had us all pumped for days! Have you watched it again? The spinning no handed halfpacker whip to halfpacker is jaw droppingly good! I hope to see much more of this style from Matthias in 2014.

On January 19th, Shintaro dropped his second incredible edit of the month! This was and is a masterclass in flatland control, that I have to admit I’ve watched more than any other video up until the Alexis edit dropped. The man can do what he likes on that bike, the right hand halfpacker to opposite hang five spinning circle k out had me screaming at the screen, perfect! Total masterclass in bike control, and certainly the most slept on edit of the month!

Matthias not only delivered a massive edit to start the year, he also put together this quality Winter edit for his good friend Alex Jumelin. Alex treated us all to a few surprises, especially the back wheel line at 3:50! It will be interesting to see where Alex goes with this kind of back wheel foot jam concept in 2014.

Stephan Kornely BMX Sport Import 2014 Edit from Waldemar Fatkin on Vimeo.

This made a rainy day in Southsea all the better! Much like Matthias, Waldemar Fatkin is not only an amazing rider, but also can deliver on the editing front as well. There aren’t too many people that can say they can do a hang ten kickflip to halfpacker a’la the Boss, Martti Kuoppa. Stephan Kornely is one of those guys, this guy goes under the radar a fair bit. Amazing rider, give this one another watch!

2013 was a great year for Heresy! And 2014 has started with an absolute banger to start the year, the accolades will keep coming for Alexis I am sure. When the edit dropped, I made the comment “Every so often an edit comes along that defines what we do! This is flatland!”.

Do I really have to tell you to watch this again?

The end of the month started as it begun, another incredible edit from the Brazilian phenomenum that is Mateus Beckmann. The decade variation at 5:33 has got us all talking, Mateus puts a body twist on the decade variation landing backwards. Go watch it again, I am sure we will be talking about this for years to come. It is a groundbreaking piece of originality from one of the sports most talented riders.

What does February have in store, stay tuned!
