 dear editors: we gotta stop making edit cuts halfway through a trick then subsequently showing the rest of the trick from a different angle/cut. Let your viewers see the full trick play out then show the other angle.

 I second this. The last half of the video was less so, but the first half was frustrating, especially as he has great style.

 unfortunately it is a rule of filmaking to cut during the action and never afterwards. it may sound wrong but otherwise the video is really slow.

 @t-o-d-d:
Slow for people that don't have any attention span or don't ride. Awesome for everyone else.

 @t-o-d-d: it's certainly not a "rule" of filmmaking. A stylistic choice? Perhaps. But cuts like that aren't typically used for pacing either in action films, but instead because it can be difficult to get full action shots and guarantee the safety of actors/actresses/etc on set especially in fight scenes, have the entirety of a car flipping scene play out the way you want, etc. Jackie Chan and his stunt crew are big advocates of fully taking punches and showing follow through in their edits, it's one of the things that made him a great action star. It's a really difficult feat to accomplish by stunt actors in a way that looks real. That's why most block busters that don't have a resident Jackie Chan caliber star just resort to cutting before a punch lands.

In this videos context, bike tricks are best served whole because the riders are completing these tricks while they shoot, and pacing isn't a huge issue in a one minute clip. I'd wager this particular video was cut like this stylistically, not because it would bore the audience if they did otherwise. Pacing is certainly less of an issue in a one minute video.
