I'm so stoked this is online! Pete's 180 bikeflip from crackhanger to hiker is insane! If that wasn't enough, after he hit it, he continued the link! Goosebumps here! Sooo good! Show Pete some love in the comments for this one combining originality with the will to Persevere no matter what!

What the hell! Very impressive.
Does someone know when it was filmed? Looking at his bike I assume it is some years old.
Martti did something similar in the KGB video. Who was first?

Martti did a regular crack-packer jump to hitch-hiker.

I would say martti's would have been more difficult but nowhere near as clean or smooth as Petes link,
well... The one martti did on the KGB vid was a bit sketchy anyways...

At I guess this edit was post impulsivity.


Gliding in a crack-hanger, the jump to hitch does seem likely and not near as scary as attempting it straight  from a crack-packer, sick nonetheless!

It's kinda weird, coz Pete is an amazing rider and has some epic bangers, yet on the KGB vid, his riding was fairly basic?

Could it have been, that it was toned down, so as not to out-shine viki and Martti?

First time I met Pete was when he rode for Ozone in the 1990's. It is badass to think that the man has this much passion for his craft and just spends hours upon hours at the Clocktower putting in work. It's constant progression with him.

Another thing that really stands out about this clip is how clean it is. No bar scrape, and the tire stays on the ground. Unbelievable! He didn't just pull the trick, he freaking crushed it!
