JPEG - 10.5 kb Brakeless genius Sam ‘Flipp’ Packman is probably ranked among most people’s favourite riders at the moment. His creativity, balls and sheer skill on a bike are fast becoming legendary, and now people are starting to notice. Flipp’s just picked up an extremely well-deserved spot on the Tarty Bikes team, and Tarty’s resident video wizard Mark Westlake has put out this tidy little welcome edit to mark the occasion.

With Flipp riding and Mark filming and editing, it was bound to be good, and we weren’t disappointed! The video opens with a minute of Sam ‘getting it wrong’ at Lee Mill Quarry (something I know a lot about!), with some whince-inducing crashes and failed lines, followed by two minutes of him getting it very much right, with monster lines from start to finish. JPEG - 113.3 kb What I like best about Sam’s riding is that, although he’s brakeless and has been for a long time, he still rides like a ‘pure’ trials rider a lot of the time, pulling big sidehops, gaps (see his previous videos avril 14th and On the Discreditation of Hyper Progress if you don’t know what I’m talking about) and tech (especially with no brakes) trialsy lines, and combines it with a healthy dose of ‘real street’ moves like manuals, spins and wallrides. Add to that the bags of natural style on show in his riding and you really have got the perfect mix!

Mark’s a talented photographer and video maker as well (see some of his previous videos here), and he’s done a fine job with this edit, as we’ve come to expect. Crisp HD images, a nice edit and an ambient soundtrack (Maybe Almost by Tehn) all complement the riding perfectly. Here’s what Mark had to say about the video: "I’ve been a big fan of Flipp for a while now, so it was cool to both get him involved with the TartyBikes team for 2012 and to ride with him at Lee Quarry last weekend. This is the video we got from that day."

Enjoy…
