E-FISE 2020: Kieran Reilly – Qualifier Video

E-FISE is here, riders have filmed and submitted their qualifier videos and voting is now open!  These guys are relying on your vote to see them through to the final stages.

We thought we’d get some insight into the entries from UK riders and nudge you to vote for your favourite. 

Q&A with Kieran Reilly

– Tell us about filming. Where did you ride, how long did it take, who filmed it?

Luckily enough Adrenaline Alley Corby had agreed to let the tall order boys come and shred the new section to get a vlog out! We initially had the park from 1-4 but I think we ended up riding about 2 until 5, was a productive couple hours getting 2 vlogs and a FISE video done for sure! Oli (@olimartin.media) smashed the edit on the 3 hour drive home, I actually ended up pulling over just to watch the finished product 😆

– Did you have to battle for any of the clips in this one?

The main battles for clips in the video were definitely due to fear, it’d been a long time riding some good size ramps and Corby for sure throws you in at the deep end but once I got used to it I’d say it ran fairly smoothly, some clips taking longer than others but nothing too time consuming, haha. I think that was because I knew the lack of time I had 😂

“It’d been a long time riding some good size ramps and Corby for sure throws you in at the deep end…”

– Do you have a favourite clip?

I mean I’m super happy with the opening clip! I’m pretty sure I’m still the only person to do 360 double whip to double bar on a legitimate jump so starting the edit with that I was hoping to stand out but just about every clip in the video I’m proud of, I just hope I get to push myself even more in finals!

– What was your approach for the video? Did you go all out for this one to have the best chance of qualifying, or did you hold some things back for the next round?

I didn’t want to hold too much back incase I miss out on finals so really put a lot of work in, but I do know if I make finals I have some stuff to pull out the bag. I’ve got some new bangers I’ve not yet done that I really want to send and a worlds first I want to end the video with 👀

– If you get into the final stages, what can we expect to see from you?

Well… 😂 I’ve got a few tricks in mind I don’t want to say too much but one of which would be a worlds first and some others which would be pretty insane , the level of riding would definitely be stepped up, I’d have to put 110% into the finals video for sure!!

– You must have kept a close eye on the competition. Any of the other entries you’re stoked on?

I’ve been watching quite a lot of the videos mainly friends of mine… as well as close competition 😂 But I’ve been a fan of quite a few, all the UK boys have been killing it on their entries (TEAM GB) you know who you are! 🔥 Another video I really enjoyed was Irek Risaev, the guy’s an insane rider and clearly has a good sense of humour 😂

– Here’s the push… Why should people vote for you?

I feel like it’d be huge for me to get into finals and if I did I already get an adrenaline rush thinking of the stuff i want to send, if I make the finals I’ll be going for top spot 😈 If you want some new madness please do go hit that vote button!!! ❤️ THANK YOU! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
