There sure were a lot of guys getting down on MTBs. They look like they have a lot of love for flatland too there. Were those nose wheelies dialed or what?! Awesome video!

wow!! that only proves my point about the gayness of the geometry of new flatland frames. like it was to difficult to rock a bike with a 13.5 back end.

I've posted some of these vids before. This sport seems to be based in Ibirapuera, Brazil. They call it freeride biking or something like that and do flat tricks on any bike, but mostly MTB. They don't get along with the flatlanders apparently.

Most of their tricks are based on the hang 5, thats why they get so good at them and the variations of them. But I'm not taking anything away from their skills, they are really good. The high speed nose wheelies are done feathering brakes like a stoppie on motorbikes. Pedalling time machines will always be difficult. Thats the trick that surprises me most.

I guess this explains everything. They start at a very young age. Damn, they kick asses!

when I finaly learn pedal time machines you can bet that im not going to hold hands with two other dudes cool enough to also know pedal time machine and all drive around in a little merry go around like that in pedal time machine.
dont care how awesome the trick is
or how hard it must be to unison with another one or two people.

thats ghey right there.

but
crazy mad props to those guys.
they must ride all the time to be that dialed in.

o
what about landings ?  does it still count if you touch foot down ?
maby thats why those guys hate flatlanders then,  cause the ride out seems to be
about 8% of the over all factor of the trick sequence.
 :P

those guys have some mad skills, its impressive but brazilians  flatlanders hate those guys, they have no clue about what flatland is,they dont know the history, they may know a few tricks but between them and the flatlanders there is no respect, Ibirapuera park is one of the oldest flatland spots in Sao Paulo and  sometimes the local flatlanders have problems with those MTB guys that  just go near the riders super fast  showing up       
thinking they are the best just coz they are pulling nose manuals on bigger bikes, its sad the fact they hate each other and its a pity for the brazilian flatland scene,  some of those guys could become really good flatlanders if they demonstrating interest in flatland!!!
