Another month has gone blazing by, and that means that it’s time for Brian Tunney to give us a look at what he got into during his garage flatland sessions over the course of June! As always, Brian delivers with a ton of real solid riding and a song selection from a band you probably haven’t heard of before, but will be stoked on! Hit play to check it all out!
“Quick rundown of June riding. And also, this is official notice that summer has reached Austin.
The undertaker to backwards wheelie to barspin undertaker: It took four days to land. I’ve seen Scott Powell and Rob Ridge pull out straight up double undertakers, no backwards wheelie. And I’ve tried to no avail. It can, probably happen, but for now, I remain an undertaker to short backwards wheelie to undertaker fool. Initially, I came really close to landing one of these on the first day of trying it, and then three more days had to pass before it just clicked. Brain got out of the way and everything just happened. I have other plans for this but because this took four days, I need a break.
The reverse cancan undertaker was a by-product of trying the reverse cancan undertaker to rope-a-roni. And that also took a while to get right. I swear, it just wasn’t my month for landing things in one session.
The two tailwhips to backwards hitchhiker were my way of saying, “okay, I need a few easy things to do that are fun and won’t break my will.” I’m kinda over looking at that Heresy frame but also too lazy to switch it out.
The half-hiker to invisible hand to g-turn to backwards hitchhiker happened after two hours of attempts on a 95 degree night. This, I will blame on the garage floor. There are some small bumps I’m still acclimating to. And even though I ground bars, I was too tired to redo it. So if you can’t find em, grind em.
The pull up to caboose thing is kinda difficult. It’s half brakeless lawnmower, half dump truck and not consistent. Combined with a pivot to upside down wheelie and then revert out the same side, I spent a good three hours trying to land this. And the final result is not hugely impressive.
The backwards elbow glide to undertaker was another trial: It took close to two hours to land. And I started trying it, thinking that it would be 15 minutes of attempts. Also, the camera adds a huge gut apparently. I will keep my shirt on from now on.
The last two smith decade clips are less than spectacular, but on 105 degree days, it’s just nice to ride for a few minutes.
