Let the games begin (Feb 7th). Rules are as per usual.
•You can not have landed a double flip before.
•First person to land it(clean) and get the video online wins.
•You must land it clean enough to please the other competitors.
•It must be landed on flat ground to count.
•you may hop ONCE after the flip.
Along with first place, a second, third, and fourth place will be awarded. So don’t give up after someone posts their video.
PLEASE try and make your video clips somewhat enjoyable… Even tho its a race it is much nicer to watch a well made video than a scrappy half ass clip of your first double.
ALSO: If someone would make the signature trophy that would be awesome… I’m boggled. Thanks.
not that I’m participating… but shouldn’t you also define what counts as a double and whats not? I’d say it has to go around clearly 1.75 times around at least and needs to be shown in slow mo. Just a thought…
Name: Marcus Collings Location: Midlands(ish) England, UK Years ridding: Just over one Fav. Trick: Tre-side-flips look pretty cool Fav. Fruit: Fruit? …uh probably mango
I wont be able to go out for another 4 or so hours so I hope no one gets it by then. Hopfuly It wont take long to get. I cant see that there going to be much harder than straight crankflips, we will see.
Ok I got back from school and have been out for about 20 mins. Its a pretty cool trick, I had good fun learning it. I managed to land quite a few. I will edit what I got now. It will probably take me a while because I am pretty new to adobe premiere, I will add some music and effects and stuff. If anyone can get theres up before me they can have it. It seems a bit unfair that alot of people probably havnt been out to try it yet, Im just glad it wasnt won by the time I got here.
The only advice I can give is start your kick with your cranks at the 2/8 position and jump up with your back foot so you get more air time pulling up on the saddle. Good luck.
Years ridding: 1.5
Fav. Trick: out flip
Fav. Fruit: apple
I don’t think I stand much of a chance considering that we got almost a foot of snow over night, and I won’t have a good place to ride for a while. Also since somebody has already landed it before I even saw the thread, which wouldn’t have been for a few more hours if I didn’t have a snow day.
Not sure about your software. I could guide you through if it were a mac…
I made a little video of the short little bit of time I had while the sky wasnt leaking. The vid shows the stormy weather closing in over my head while I rushed to try and land it… my camera started getting a bit too wet for my liking and I packed it up. Maybe I will go into town and ride under the overhang after the shops close up…
