Sequence Saturday 33

Sep 22, 2012
by Ian Hylands  
Infocusmtb brings us this sequence of Andi Tillmann throwing a big barrel roll at the Kamloops Bike Ranch.

bigquotesAfter spending the whole season in Whistler BC, my friends, Anton Horl, Nic Pescetto, Ricu Umbertini and I decided it was time to get out of there. Riding Kamloops had always been a big dream of ours, and all we knew of this freeride Mecca was pictures and videos. So we bought a crappy but damn awesome van and loaded up all the stuff we could fit in it. The plan was just to drive to Kamloops and send whatever we found on the way. We were leaving Whistler stoked, but at the same time scared to get back alive as we were motivated as f**k!

Our first stop brought us to Lilloet where we tried to find some natural lines. We had just a few days for our trip, and with no local knowledge or help we couldn't find anything easy to access so we decided to move on. This was a good decision as we next passed a little village in the middle of nowhere called Spences Bridge. We immediately knew this place had some serious riding left for us. We had never ridden anything this sandy and wanted to get used to it, so we checked out some easier descents first. After spending the night in our van we met up with Mark Matthews and Mason Mashon and sent some damn gnarly lines together. Being super stoked but a little beat up we then packed our stuff again and moved on to Kamloops on the next day.

Arriving in Kamloops our European jaws dropped and we couldn't believe all the big jumps and lines we spotted from the van. After checking out Kamloops and trying to figure out where to sleep we ended up at the Bike Ranch, and immediately unloaded our bikes to ride those jumps. The next day we spent pretty much the whole day at the Ranch sessioning the jumps.

In the picture you can see me corking out/flipping my big bike for the first time, thanks to Nicola Pescetto for the picture! I would have tons more stories to tell but this is just a Sequence Saturday and I hope you guys enjoy it! Ride On!

 When Andi's friend said "put a cork in it", Andi took it a bit more literally than his Friend would've expected

 "GREAT FLIPPIN SCOTT!" Sherlock remarked as he turned to Watson. "Stop screwing with me." said Watson.
  • + 11
 Because he's the rider that Kamloops deserves, but not the one it needs right now... and so we'll document him... because he can take it... because he's not a hero... he's a silent genius , a watchful enertainment... a GNAR Knight..."

 Indeed, this is an exceptional demonstration of skill, since it is vastly harder to spin around the second, intermediate axis. For a cyclist, the first rotational axis of inertia is the backflip, the second the barrel role, and the third the 360. Spinning round the first and third are stable. Spinning around the second is not. Try flipping your phone/a deck of cards out of your hand and catching it. You will find that in two orientations (first and third axis of inertia), they spin fine, in the other (second) it will add a twist in the third (smallest) axis.

In this sequence, you can clearly see the effort and control he is putting in to stop this extra twist happening. Props to him.

 ½ spin Tillmann-Quark:

Experimental physicist, Nicola Pescetto, discovers new subatomic particle while observing super-motion and anti-symmetry in the Large Cycling Accelerator (LCA) located in Kamloops, BC. Pescetto used a photography technique often referred to as transitional photography, or sequence photography, to capture the peculiar motion of the ½ spin Tillmann-Quark (also known as a Cork-Flip). The elusive particle appears to have a reverse rotation quantity of 1 and a horizontal rotation quantity of ½, thus defying symmetry. Though the ½ spin Tillmann-Quark was previously thought to be impossible and disregarded by physicists worldwide, it is now being described as the final piece of the puzzle to classical physics. Some are going as far as to say that the ½ spin Tillman-Quark will explain the final mysteries of the universe.

The Tillmann-Pescetto formula:

~½ = 2Pi + (½) / 2Pi +1 (V^2 – C^2)
