keep austin wheel

there are a few things that make this edit special.  First, the unicycle football crew.  Soooo austin...they were such a cool part of the evening...not normal.  not even close to boring.  Hippy, punk, cowboy shit man, it was like tripping and running naked in the forest.  Not that i know what thats like or anything. 
     Second, was the sound of the cicadas buzzing in the tress.  So here's what's up with that if you were wondering.  Only the males make the noise.  It is a mating song as well as a tactic to scare away birds.  They are the loudest sound producing insects.  The abdomen of the males body is hollow with a drum-like organ inside.  To the ancient Greeks they were a symbol of resurrection, rebirth, and immortality.
     Third, this was all shot on my favorite tennis court.  It is extremely grippy.  You can hear diclaudio carving around on this slow pavement.  Tennis...i swear adams bike is so dialed when a wheel hits the ground it sounds like a tennis racket hitting a tennis ball.  Dialed.  The editing is light here cause i felt like it was one of those "slice of life" moments.  In other words, just watch and enjoy-2 good 2 tamper with.  I like to try and let things edit themselves.

Magic Man

Adam is one clean rider.  He has dotted all i's and crossed all t's for sure, the details don't stand a chance.  He studies the science of flatland, and practices like a sage.  This all makes him a film makers dream as he's almost sure to land tricks rapidly and consistently.  I caught up with him yesterday at this new undisclosed spot on austin's east side.  We decided this spot is one of those here today, gone tomorrow joints so he threw down some links in its honor.  Don't hate the player-hate the game.  Adam is so flatland.

There is something to be said about time.  Although this footage is dated a bit, I think most of you will enjoy a look back at a really good time in Texas.  Since it is  a memory a few months removed, you have had time to forget some things that made this time so special, well...heres a reminder.  Thanks to everyone who appears on this edit.  I threw a little street session in middle just to break the beat a bit, hope you flatland purists don't mind it too much.  Bmx Freestyler 4 evermore!

Trick of the Month July 2010 McCircle

January- Hang 10 Seat Grab
February – Hang 5
March – Messiah
April- Karl
May- Switch Hand Steam Roller
June- Hitchhiker
July – McCircle
August – Cliffhanger
September – Brakeless Decade
October – Mega Spin
November-Lung Spin
December- Lard Yard

The Trick of the Month has become a staple of BMX Freestyler and Global-Flat. The Tradition shall continue on for the year of 2010. My goal over the years was to help riders out there stay motivated learning tricks and pushing the envelope that new variations would be thought of at the same time. All tricks in the Trick of the Month are a Beginner/Intermediate Level. That way all rider can participate or make attempts.

Here is how Trick of the Month works. Every month there will be a new trick in the spotlight. You can do 1 of 2 things.

1. Post a video or photo of you performing the designated trick for that month/

2. Make comments to help or inspire each other.

Variations are a good thing! So if you got something unusual and different please share with everyone. 09 was a great year for participation. I hope to keep the tradition going with some new tricks thrown into the mix along with some old faithful.
