 Thank you, Nico. For landing in a manual and ACTUALLY connecting it to something else. Everyone these days dropping front wheel in the flat bottom between jumps... DOESN’T COUNT.

 Known in BMX as the "nowhere manual," with the common variant circa 2006 "manual to nowhere 180"

 I didn't realize he rode single speed. Seems like it would suck if you're riding tacky dirt. But if your world is only massive roll in jumps I guess it doesn't matter. Man...he must makes it look too easy. Dirt Merchant jumps are so blind in person.

 Looney how easy he makes that look. Would love to see him at Rampage next year???

 Me too. I would just point out that he has been judging Rampage ever since... www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAoTzYwfVMY

 That’s almost exactly how I ride Dirt Merchant!
I can barely whip or wheelie, i get arm pump 2-3 times during that run, and I would have separated both my shoulders falling out of the sky riding at that speed... but yeah! That’s almost exactly how I ride Dirt Merchant!

 I got scared after he immediately looks back after the massive hip jump thinking he had crashed, especially after they teased that part at the beginning of the video

 Ever since I rode Dirt Merchant I'm seriously addicted to jumps.
