Yuki Itoh – Welcome to the Team – FEC from IGI BMX on Vimeo.

On the 18th September 2016, Yuki Itoh made a big statement to the flatland world. Tomorrow I am really psyched to drop an exclusive interview with one of my favourite riders and learn more about this rider that offers so much more than just “tricks”. It seems like as good a time as any to re-up his amazing “Welcome to Far East” edit!

Everything about this Yuki Itoh – Welcome to the Far east Cycles team edit is on point. Yuki is one of the most underrated riders on the japanese scene in my opinion so it’s great to see FEC showed him some love.

Riding wise, the riding and the intricate switches are pretty much all groundbreaking. Here are some of my personal highlights:

– The opposite turbine steam boat ride in flip flip to yammer style backwards spinning xft steam step on fork back to steam turbine to xft fork spinning steam to opposite xft steam flip steam opposite side step into spinning cliff at 1:06! Are you following all that? Yuki’s style is so nimble around the bike, amazing!

– At 2:11 the turbine teakettle to spinning xft crack pivot spinning hang ten pivot opposite one footed spinning crack step over backwards facing one footed spinning ck jump to halfpacker pivot xft backwards spinning xft stream pivot steam to x handed spinning half hiker! Mind blown!

– The last line at 3:03! I will leave that one to you!

Props to Takuya Higa also for the camerawork. Job done! Respect Yuki, liquid flatland at it’s finest. Stay tuned for the interview tomorrow.
