FEDERAL BIKES: FTS – James Cunningham part

From the Ride UK review of FTS:

“James Cunningham.  Stylish man.  Yet again, FTS battles with security.  He even gets chased by a familiar looking Israeli chap with a baton…  James is a hell of a ramp rider and has translated some of those skills and high speeds into his street riding, and the result is pretty astonishing.  An absolute banger of a section.  Cracking tune for it as well, by Bauhaus.  Big fast wallrides, gaps and spins are the speciality here.  It’s clear to see that James was on one filming for this part.  

There’s some legit technical skill as well, like the tooth over, and the bonk manual ice 180…  But it’s mainly a high-paced tour de force.  He makes it all look good, too!  Could this be a breakout section for James?  I would argue yes!  Those downside oppo whips are too good.  There are some wild gaps to wallrides, a notable one at a London cobbled boob spot that has been wanting to be done for a while.  There are some so committed that he lands heavy nose first onto the wall…  But speed will carry you through.  James Cunningham, speed and style.”

The fourth of seven parts to hit the web from our Nora Cup winning full length video FTS. James Cunningham has been riding for Federal for the last 7 years and hasn’t stopped progressing. Impeccable style and arguably the best switch whip in the current game. Let’s go!
