I did my biggest spin at this moment during Fest Sessions 2021 in Malmedy. And I guess the biggest spin at this moment. It was really mentally to spin a 25 meters jump. We going so fast on these jumps!

 I don't know how many feet long 25 meters is. To the BING search engine I go. 82 feet. Seems legit.

 If a fest series event occurs and there is media coverage, did the event really happen?

 Was that not more of an off axis flip rather than a spin?
  • 34 3
 that was fully a flip. some people would call that a "corked out flip" hahaha
  • 44 1
 Flat spin?
Regardless, he seemed quite pleased.

 @BenPea: Yep flat spin
  • 10 4
 people have started calling it simply 'spin' because nobody can differentiate between 360s, backflips, flat spins, etc. anymore

 The first clip made it look like that but the rest clearly showed a flatspin. Definitely a ton harder and different than an off axis flip. Robbie Bourdon approved!

 @5afety3rd: Except flat 3s are thrown completely different than a nose dive 360.

 Based on freestyle skiing that was an off axis backflip. Flatspin is when your feet and head are level (your body is "flat"), cork is when you spin and go off axis but your feet never get to the same level as your head and then a flip/rodeo is when your feet go over your head at some point in your spin.

 @Daledenton: Wrong. The hips in relation to your head determine if a rotation is corked, it has nothing to with your feet.

 @scott-townes: I mean unless you’re doing something pretty wack your feet are on the same plane as your hips. Either way his hips clearly are above his head in every shot.

 What’s next? Nose bonking a passenger jet?

That was mental. Beautiful work mate

 He can do whatever he wants: he will never get invited. Strait keeps doing his one handers and has his spot already secured for next year…

 Rampage jumps look small in comparison to Fest jumps. Also the speed difference to make the jumps looks insane. There is just no cliffs beside the Fest jumps.

 @betsie: Its pretty easy to make rampage jumps look small with 30 ton excavators and more available manhours to build your course.

 @sofamac: so cool you've spoken with the Rampage team and they've informed you of their plans to never invite William. Thank you for sharing your 100% reliable insider information with the rest of us on the pinkbike comments.

 Regardless if it was a flip or spin. Buddy was at one point facing the opposite direction in mid air that's focken unbelievable! So nutty almost slow motioooon for ya

 No to take anything away from him, that's crazy. But just like ten years ago in FMX where people would call something like that a 360, I strongly disagree and call this a crooked backflip. The rotation axis is almost non-existent horizontally

 Doesn't count if It's on Video. Needs to just be word of mouth or its not core.

 Met William at last year’s Fest event. Nicest guy ever. And his riding was some of the best I ever witnessed, Especially his session with Nico on the smaller line. Insane skills.
