I don't like using the word 'best' when it comes to describing riders. He's my current favorite, that's for sure.

Really enjoy his video making skills too. The little additions like Bender dancing with the Eel. What the f**k is that? Funny, that's what!

Top work James. More please.

edit: ghost double post.

 

would like to add , love he's a left foot forward... As much time as I spend watching Ali c vids- he's right foot forward and it's hard to visualize  spinning in different directions for lefties

That was sweet as. That tree slowmoturnaround was my fav. Tailwhip at the end just blew my mind.

I feel like the tyre bumps aren't adding much and add a clumsiness to something but besides  that was definitely a mouth open video.

I think the tyre bump on the tree which turned him 180 or whatever it was  @0.55 worked really well.

The nose manual up the way to nose off was sweet too.

Am I getting a wee bit of a 'take the piss' at the start with the single moves done on the flat? Liked that. Nice touch.

Edit: yea theres definitely a hidden message in there. Robots bashing out single tricks.

hilarious take on frenchies if you ask me.. Their street "style" is the worst thing to ever happen to trials. The spin with the bars no foot thing is worse than double footjam whips if you ask me

Woah, TF is looking weird and new.

I'm not surprised he rinsed all over the 24" club with that starter, it's also why i started feeling hatey/ salty/ negative (choose your own word) towards the scene. 

Least we have Ali, Mark, Ben T, Ross, Ben R when he's around, Leon, and the 26"/20" dudes still doing their own thing. On YT got a reply from someone who said Dave Sellero is still riding but no videos, he was pretty lethal too. 

Left my thoughts on YT with James- superb video for sure.

The music isn't up my street, but who cares when the riding is as good as that! I do love how individual you are James! 

Not sure which was my favourite bit, must go re-watch immediately.

That will be super hard! I had issues with the cranks always spinning with the one in the video. If you watch, I had to do a very small pedal kick, then delay the whip a bit with a no footer and kick it late, just so that the cranks would stay level. Most of the crashes were due the cranks. I also have a bunch of tape wedged in there.

Still worth a go though ;)

I knew this edit wouldn't be for everyone, which is why I also put out the raw clips on youtube. Play whatever music you like to it.

I am poking a bit of fun at the current wave of videos I've been seeing. Glad most people are liking it!

I can't comprehend what's going on in a lot of those tricks until I watch it back 3/4 times, haha. Love the originality, wish I could do at least half of that
