Matt and I have been waiting for the right time to film this video since July 2012. For the 2013 season, Matt picked up Saracen Bikes as a new sponsor and we decided we had waited long enough. The video turned out much more of a project than we had expected - we spent four days building up an old dirt jump line into something Matt could throw down on (it worked out pretty well as you can tell). Stay tuned throughout 2013 for the next few instalments!

 Get that boy to Wisley or some other proper trails, watching him throw down bangers on competition jumps is pretty cool but he's got so much style and flow, I'm sure it'd be a phenomenal result!

 i wanted him to land that double back so bad! Such a savage rider, keep it up
  • - 25
 The difference between the one he landed and the one he didn't was body position. On the failed attempt his legs were straight - on the completed one his legs were bent. The more you tuck the faster you rotate. Watch a diver do a triple and they are tucked into a ball. They then slow their rotation by opening up. It's gymnastics 101, but I'm yet to see a DJer use correct rotational technique. I will buy a lottery ticket the first time I see a DJer use their core instead of throwing their head back.

 Baldock keeps his quite tucked.

DJers need to spot their landing.

 He cased it iamamodel, not under rotation.

 andthat bmx run was siiick, never seen a windshield wiper.

 Except for the part where gymnasts use their head to complete any spin or rotation and to spot the landing
  • + 9
 iamamodel does have a point. The lottery should definetly be tied to biking somehow. Also- is gymnastics 101 a college class? sounds like a great place to meet chicks...
  • + 1
 You don't throw your head back to initiate the rotation, you do it to look for the landing and that keeps the rotation going. If you stop looking you get stuck upside down...

@iamamodel there are similarities between gymnastics and you can borrow some technique from gymnastics but really only air awareness. Other than that the overlap is minimal. Body position on a bike is nothing like gymnastics.

 Malolo, he cased because he started the rotation BEFORE he left the lip, therefore changing his trajectory. When you hit a lip, your trajectory and speed determine where you land (simple ballistics). If a rider hits a lip without tricking and lands perfectly, and then hits that lip with the same speed AND throws his head back while still going up the lip - he will case. Every time. Watch it over and over and you will see.

DylanHunter, the head is only used to spot the landing - the legs, arms and torso are moved closer or further away from the centre of gravity to slow or speed up rotation so the the body is in the perfect position to land - guided by the eyes that have spotted the landing.

Going to gymnastics/trampoline classed improved my DJing out of sight. I was nowhere near as good as the guy in this video, but if he was to spend some time with an aerialist coach - he would be the best in the world because, as far as I can tell, not a single DJer uses correct technique and the first one to do so will leap FAR in front of everyone else in terms of tricks they can do that everyone else can't. They will be the Aaron Gwin of DJ.

 So basically their name will be Semenuk

 @iamamodel how many doubles you landed?
  • + 2
 Why does it matter how you flip? Surely a flip is a flip no matter whether you use your head or your core or your f*cking testicles.

@iamamodel do you also go round races telling the winners that they won it the wrong way?

Dont really think I need any coaching on flips, on or off the bike. You do not flip a bike the same way you flip on a trampoline, end of argument.

 @iamamodel what's is he going to do, start the rotation after he's taken off? that's going well....
