Just take a look at this video, here is his gold run on the pipe, on winter X-Games 2004:
Jon Olsson is inventor of some new, extreme freestyle double flips, that are two separate flips in one air, such as D-spin 720 into a flatspin 540 (DJ Flip), switch double rodeo 1080 (Hexo Flip), and the most amazing one a double flatspin 900 (Kangaroo Flip). Here is the video of his Kangaroo flip:
Not a long time ago, it was allready year 2008, Jon Olsson with S.Dumont and Schiller involved in a complete new open freeskiing content. The name was.. mm something like Winter American Open, a ok here it is the North American Open at Breckenridge. In this event there is a new format of qualifing. Every rider has as many runs as he manage to do through a daylight to show himself in front of the judges. When a rider hears the “bib”, he is qualified for the next level.
Here some more great moves from Jon in this video, just perfect flips, grinds and everything else:
Go Olsson! Go Jon!!!
Found some guys, that totally knocking me off, with their trial drops, and hops. And these ones making even more beautiful drops than guys in the other vids in my trials category.
btw the first jump over the fence, landing on the front wheel, is my favorite one!
Great trial atmosphere here at Hook Woods. Top skilled riders show their abilities of perfect balance tight jumps and very accurate moves. Here is the video, btw music is nice:
If u remember, i’ve had a question some time before abou trial bikes, specialised and unspecialised ones. So I take my words back, cause these riders show some perfect freestyle on a specialised ones.
No comments: They allready did that, they are riding their snowmobiles on the water.
My friend asked me, after he saw post i m writing, ” Hey, may be it’s possibleto do on mtb? “
Yeah it could be some extreme freestyle watercrossing
Prepare to see the action u’ve never seen before! It’s Jesus on the bike! He crosses the water on his bike:
Damn physics, it’s really awesome. Extreme sports nowadays can look very strange indeed. I even don’t know, about whom i’ll be writing next week: wingsuit skateboarding or snowmobile on the water.
Here is another video, so u could see it once again but in a little bit different angle:
That’s freaking crazy!
Ow it’s wonderful song ! Cake – The Distance , and take a look at this trial pro, he is on some low freestyle He is one of the best trial bikers ever, making not just simple tricks, he shows individual ones. And not just trial tricks, Things like frontflip, and high tree plant:
U know one thing, every time i see some tight trial videos on youtube, guys are on trial bikes, that look more like street bikes, adjusted for trials,.. like Norco Evolve. But not a specialized ones like ECHO, ZOO and GU. Why?
And the music is just perfect!
It was highest ride for that time, and it was highest prize in history of surfing! Later Mike did 70 feet huge wave. Nowadays Ken Bradshaw has the record of the biggest wave ever surfed. It was big wave surfing at Log Cabins at about 80 feet high.
Take a look at that guy from Caracas, Venezuela, extreme bmx pro rider Daniel Dhers. This guy totally breaking my mind by his air combos. Take a look at this video from X Games, where Daniel won the Gold. And again his combos, like 360 & double tail whip, and this backflip with 180 and other tricks look just crazy:
It took place in 2007, and do you remember Dew Action Sports Tour ? so Daniel won the dew cup on the two of tours (2006, 2007). And his combos were as great as they could be
Here’s one more perfect video of his. It was.. mmm.. LG Action Sports World Championship in 2006, and it took place Dallas, TX
He is just great, i’ve found one more clip, here some of his nice BMX moves shawn in nice quality and in slow motion:
This guy is a real master! And if Rodney Mullen is a king of flatland skateboarding moves, this guy is a real pro of street style skb. Ok let’s see some of best his videos. First of all this one, it is a compilation of year 2004. Ryan here is a little boy,.. but take a close look at his tricks, they are as tight as pro’s one:
nice one,.. if u are intrested in biography of ryan sheckler, u can read it here
ryan sheckler pictures:
Here some new clip of his skateboarding, nice fish-eye filming:
His drops sometimes are more than unbelievable! How does he stands on his legs after doing such a huge drops? ! I’ll be really happy if Ryan could share some skateboarding trick tips of his, or any other secrets
OK do you remember Bob Bornquist and his mega ramp ? Ok and here is one clip, where Ryan attempts to jump one of the mega ramps like that one:
ok what else should u see from ryan sheckler skateboading clips, mmm .. THIS ONE for the BEST DROP in the very end of the video:
Unbelievable DROP! and long one…
This guy is great! One of the best traceurs i’ve ever seen. He show a lot of unbelievable parkour tricks.. and much more great acrobatics in the air. Here is his video from Lisses:
And here i found some nice his moves on youtube. I wouldn’t say that this one is the best of his..but still..
His flips look unreal!
