FIRST!!! LOL

dafflat you're comin along well man, but you gotta get the whole trick in there! it's the rules. But anyway very nice video: the setting with the country road and your dog and your dope looking blue bike. Practically utopian haha!

But unfortuntely you're up against flat1ander who kicks it off with 3 big beginner tricks: Hang 5, Lardyard, and Switch Hand Steam (to brief side-squeak no less). Really solid trick selection and well done. Definitely borderline Intermediate! Less lens fogging hopefully next time?

Flat1ander wins. Higher difficulty, more variety.

Dafflat, film your ride outs. Huge knock against you for not filming riding out of some of your tricks.

Sorry? I thought it was the best class for me, those are really the only tricks i can do and i most likely would have been crushed in intermediate... Not trying to step on anyones toes here just trying to progress and have fun.

I know I should have filmed my ride-out, but I din't have any so thats why i skipt them :P,
I wished I had shot my video mutch later then I did, knowing the battles start would take some time, i have some ride-outs now.

Never the less, I would have never beaten someone like Flat1ander, he is way beter than Iwill be in the next 2 years!

Props to you Flat1ander on taking the win! showing some nice stuff there

Dude I am in no way trying to discourage you or talk sh*t, it's actually really not your fault, there should be somebody to make sure this kind of stuff doesn't happen. But go look at the intermediate right now. You definitely can hang with those guys and should be there. Actually your run beat the living snot out of Jason's, and it hangs with Wouter's. This class is for the guys that just stopped doing backward steams and tail whips. Hang 5 + Stick B + crosshanded turbined forward Steamroller is not a beginner run. It's just not.

He belongs in beginner, he's just maybe more at the top of the class... he's not linking out of Hang 5's, and the half-lash to lardyard is a pretty standard beginner level link. I think he's better off in this class then intermediates.

yeah, i mean he was spinning his steams well and had the turbines but he maybe should have had some harder stuff in his first video to really compete in Intermediate.

...and dafflat shouldn't be in this competition?

I wouldn't wanna discourage anyone like him from entering Beginner battle. It's a great process to get used to: riding hard, focusing on learning, filming and analyzing, and then editing, presenting to public, discussing, and so on... Generally everyone involved benefits a lot.  It is a wide class which encompasses a lot of levels, but if you expect to WIN you're going to need to have a lot of skills under your belt already, even as a beginner.

Plus i mean look:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8YAHSNDVfo[/youtube]

This is Novice in Japan LOL

There's an aspect of thought I suppose, that one should get about to this level before they start really 'showcasing' it, like at demos or comps. With a tailwhip or a forkglide, maybe you've just dipped your toes in the water shall we say. I kind of agree but I don't want to sound like a dick about it.

Off course i don't compeet to win, is it for self motivation, i was hope ing for a second round but i knew that would be difficult, if i would compeet to win, i would compeet in real live events. Therefor the online battles are a good selfreflection on what level your skills are!

I hope no one expects a minimum level to compeet in the beginners online battles  this would be very disencouraging for all beginners!

Just joking alright  :beer: ;D
Nice vid from both of you, i think this onlines makes only an atmosphere to push your self harder with practising, and that is good. it made me try new tricks i wouldn't touch for months after i sended in vid and made an good impact + improved some other tricks.

.... I agree with Rad255 that flatlander is in the wrong class.  His stuff is way too dialed and agressive (to say) for what we call the beginner class here........

& "maybe" I was in the wrong class, but I wanted intermediate because I know I can do much better....just didn't really film enough to catch more of what I am able to do.  I chose to use the tricks that I have dialed and can exibit bike control with clean landings that don't look like I'm fighting the bike to land a trick (because I feel that control is more important than variety, even though I lost because of it).....in the end I will progress.....

Whoa.
Flat1ander is pretty good! I got bumped to intermediate (because of time constraints, not skill level) and I'd like to point out that I can't do ANY of the tricks he did for his beginner run! not complaining at all, just sayin that he's killing it! good job bro, I'm definitely gonna get crushed in the intermediate class :) owell, i just gotta learn faster lol

This is all for fun ... and to help us flatland junkies progress, no ?!

Some ppl have a knack for certain 'difficult' tricks on a bike but struggle to learn other 'easy' moves.

I know my skill level is constantly progressing and I appreciate being in a class with good riders some may  believe are 'better' than I am , because it makes me want to ride better ... and to motivate myself !

I know I'm already a whole lot better than my submitted video , so u can only assume everyone else is as well ...  flatlander ripped it !! that just makes me want to see his progression for his next battle even more !!

Ya, that's true.  I can do a few more difficult tricks but I still can't do firehydrants lol.  I don't even practice them anymore because I get so pissed off hehe.

I seriously hope you never judge anything ever.

Anyway I'm voting for Shaun! Hidde is definitely sick, I just like the small things he added in like the little bar flip, the double footed boomerangs and the one handed stuff. I also liked the long dialed steam.

First off props to hidde !! Nice video, nothing here is directed at u  :beer:

T.J. I've re read the rules again . Nothing says if u touch u lose. I'm not sure thats a very good explanation  :huh:

Zoffy - I submitted a video, taken with a cell phone, including touches, because I was in Fla at the time. My father offered to tape me for bout 20 min. I thought the battles would start before I could get a real video submitted . I got back to NY and asked Ondo to submit a new video. He said no.

It is what it is. I'm not bitter I lost , but I would like a better explanation.

Are you not judging everything I landed, the difficulty of those tricks, before and after the touch, soley on a touch?

Is the difficulty, and variety all void due to the touch ?

Your clip wasn't one long continuous shot, meaning you had a little control over what you submitted. I'm not blaming you for your circumstances. But, the touches mean you didn't pull what you were trying, which automatically throws out any degree of difficulty what you were attempting had. A video contest gives everyone the level playing field of submitting a "full pull" run so that touches don't distract from what folks are doing; they get judged purely on the level of their riding. You did good stuff, but you didn't pull some of it. Everyone wants to see your best stuff, but it's gotta be completed to count, especially if your competitor "hit" all his tricks.

I think ShaunyLaps had best trick with the barflip, and really some nice riding, it's a shame about those touches; as in any contest, touches typically make the link not count.  it's a hard lesson, but valid.   that been said, props to both you guys--looking forward to seeing more!

Shaun, I'm sorry to say that touches in a video are completely unacceptable. Everyone had ample time to put together a video without showcasing their feet hitting the floor. If you touch during the link, it doesn't really count. It doesn't make what you did void, but it counts strongly against you.

Vote for Yada for variety. Denis just repeated too many things too many times.

Well i had the ''megaspin'' for 2 circles the first one, and the secound 1 was only 1 circle but it was an 'combo' with that half boomerang, steam was actually the only move repeated, with about same amount in that trick, but the other one was a combo.
haha soudns so funny when i talk about my 'combos' while i have none tbh, hehe.
i think yada wins me with hang 5, so gratz to him :) see you next time :P

More variety from Yoda. After the first 2 trix Denis was pretty much a repeat.

My vote for Yoda.

My vote to yodazoo976, I really liked the one-handed hang-five, nice control. I did like the longer links from DenisTez BMX, just needed to mix it up more. Great effort from both guys.

Sick run Jeroen! Think ya got me bro!

I prob could've chosen some better clips. At the time I was only riding in that lil spot and didn't have room to do a Hang 5. I was holding out on putting in my halflash, FW to BW Steam, and some double-footed stuff until a later round. LOL maybe I shouldn't have done that!

EDIT: your last trick especially, the hydrant to squeaker/bw hang 5, was really nice. I can't even come close to getting that one yet.

Vieth dropped more tricks into his run time and had a little bit of a progression edge on midschool with his trick library. His carving fork wheelie/mccircle was held for a good distance and was really dialed. Midschool, you had a great run too bro.  :beer: Not far behind Vieth, so keep it up for that future rematch!

Man that was a close one.  Really liked those bar-hops by Vieth, made them look easy, and that 360 was sick  :beer:   Also looks like he'll be doing mccircles before long.  Midschool had a very solid run also.  I thought he showed really good scuffing control with that first trick, big props on the one-hand peg wheelie and firehydrant (a trick that I just cannot seem to get down  :angry:)

On watching both videos it seemed like Vieth's was longer and there was just more stuff.  Midschool's video was 52 seconds long with a 4 second intro = about 48 seconds of riding.  Veiths video was 57 seconds long with a full 57 seconds of riding.  According to the rules on page one - "* The run can be few seconds longer, if the longest combo is on beginning and there are no short tricks, that could be deleted."   I thought there were some tricks that were in there that could have been left out to fit closer to the 50 seconds... 57 seconds is just a bit too long in my opinion (which doesn't count :)).  Based on that technicality I would have to give this one to Midschool.  Both guys showed real solid runs  :beer:

Have to give this battle to Aeons of Flat due to higher volume of tricks and a little more difficulty in his run. Rad255 was smooth (sweet steamroller at the end, bro =), but really only did 3 tricks in run. Aeon, the hang-5 doesn't count without the rideout, so next time give yourself a little more space to film the whole trick to landing.

Hey thanks man! :beer: I filmed a few other tricks but I was so terrified of the time limit. For some reason I was obsessed with getting my video time at 50 seconds flat. I didn't know that intro's and stuff didn't count towards your time. Now after watching Ondo's and Aeons video I kinda feel dumb because I thought the time limit mattered more than it did I guess.

You can tell from your clip that you've likely got more to show... no real skechiness and good "trick posture". Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff in future clips.   :beer:

Thanks to all for the kind words in my battle.  This summer I decided to take my flat riding more seriously and not just a once and awhile thing.  Forcing myself to enter the battles helped.  In just the previous two months, I re-learned some tricks from back in the day and learned some new ones also.  I knew in the back of my mind that I may not make it past the prelims but I didn't care.  I had fun and I'm looking forward to entering again.

Hang 5's are harder than ANYTHING aeon did. so are forward steams if you count the kick in and out. seriously Forward> backwards in terms of difficulty.

He did a hang 5 for about 1 second. That's not hard. That's not control.

Haha ive been using a sh*ty old pump for years now and i always pump my tires as much as i can but they lose air fairly quick for some reason. Im sure i dont have a hole and it really prevents me from doing any sort of long rolling tricks. This has been bugging me forever so im just getting a new pump i think.

On another note, im really proud of that stick-b, its the first one ive ever landed and not just on tape. It felt like i had been working on that trick for years, but i finally got it last week  ^_^

Oh and i certainly would have had a whole video if i had not been swamped with this business presentation. Next video i will certainly try to fill it up with tricks because i realize that volume matters as well.

And Flat1ander's  fwd steam side squeak was really controlled and smooth.

I have to give my vote to flat1ander, but it was close.  He had the edge on difficulty and and I think showed more bike control.

I have had my video in for over a week. I hope yodazoo has one too. Win or lose I don't want it to be uncontested, that would suck. I thought it was four days from the anoucement of quarter final riders your video had to be in..lol..this is the first time I have even followed online battles so I didnt realize how it worked. Anywho.

Hey flat1lander if you need more time just ask ONDO. Better than not giving a video at all. I think thats the only reason I am here now, Yodazoo never posted. I will say I work Fri. Sat. & Sun. If you need more time ask for it. I need a month or so.....lol. I have enjoyed this and thats what it's here for. GOOD LUCK TO THE FINAL 4!!!!

Well, My video is in. I am not at all happy with it but better than none. I woke up Wednesday with a huge sty in my left eye, turned out to be an infection of some kind and the medication they gave me burns like Hell and blurs my vision a bit. Better than no video at all I guess. Flat1ander........good luck in the finals and sorry to all for the lack of progression shown in this video.

 I would ask that it be Tuesday so I shoot some Monday but thats a bit longer than it needs to be. Like I said, I work Fri., Sat., & Sun. all day. This funky eye thing kinnda threw me off. Like I said flat1lander, if you post a video you should have this round no problem. I hate to just kinnda give it away at this point in the battle but theres always next time. Maybe I will be confident enough to go intermediate by then.

I just ride flat for fun, I guess I should put more time into it. At the track I can manual from here till tuesday on my 24" bike. I think I am going to trade my Zion for a Strowler 19 to give me the option to ride street if I want to. Zero/zero is hard for me to ride but as long as I am on a bike I am happy. I like the zero bar set up but I think my stem is too short as seen in the peg whillies. Any advise would be welcome.

Good showing from both!
If you seriously wanted to ride street and flat I don't think a strowler is your best option. S&M seem to have some good frames and I've seen them in person used for both.

SJ edged out Sunny by virtue of slightly higher difficulty and more forwards rolling stuff. Solid from both.

I swear I posted this yesterday but its not here...

My vote goes SJBMX.  The battle was really close, the both of you did amazing.  I agree with TJ, a little more variety and more forward stuff take the win.

Yeah I'm ready!
well at least I thought I was until my mum nicked off to scotland and I had to go stay on the otherside of town. I'll grab my bike soon and will hopefully have the video done in time.

Good luck flatlander! tell me something about yourself. A lot of people seem like a mystery on this website.

Alright Aeons.. my names Matt and I have probably been riding flat on and off for a few years now with some breaks in between. I have just recently started taking it somewhat seriously in the past year however and my progression has been much improved. I live in Boston Massachusetts but go to school about an hour away in Rhode Island. Im 21. How about you? Oh and take your time on the video, i actually haven't gotten anything on tape yet so no rush. I'm pretty sure we can take our time since we are the last ones... good luck!

Awesome matt, between you, SJ and me it's a pretty young showing. I'm 16 and have been riding flat for two years but as usual end up not riding too regularly, ends up at one term riding one term exams repeat haha....

I'm from Melbourne, Australia and ride/have ridden with guys like paradoxium, flatpaul, shane badman, kkmk.  Seems like we have a fair share of the world covered in these battles.
I'm pretty stoked with these battles, really enjoying myself.

Good luck and have fun!

 Dang! You guys make me feel old. I am 36 and live in Tennessee. The last time I rode flat until recently was about 16 years ago. I have always been on a bike mostly Street, Park and BMX Racing. I forgot how much time flatland takes, I also forgot how much I enjoy it.

Hey guys, im really sorry about the extremely long wait! We had some crazy weather here in Rhode Island for a while (snow and rain for days) along with the fact that i was completely swamped with exams  :angry:  But anyways, the weather is looking really nice for this whole weekend so im just gonna film whatever i can get and I will have a video for you guys by Sunday evening. Again, sorry about the crazy long wait but thanks for not forfeiting me guys! I dont even care if my video is crap, i just really dont want to go out without a fight..
