See Dandois style up 100 seconds of flatland flow

Raw 100 moves to the city, as Matthias Dandois serves up some BMX magic on home turf in Paris.

French flatland maestro Matthias Dandois is the subject of the latest edition of our Raw 100 video series that uses the talent and creativity of filmmakers to capture bike riding in a simple but sophisticated way.

Taking Raw 100 to an outdoor urban enviroment for the first time, UK filmmaker Will Evans teams up with Dandois to showcase Matthias' Flatland skills in three unique but different locations in the Frenchman's hometown of Paris – La Defence, River Seine, Place de la Bastille.

With some imaginative focal point shooting and use of sound, Evans captures Dandois moving throughout the city, through traffic, on bike paths and quiet back streets as all three locations eventually link together.

Every spot we rode at we tried to combine as many elements from the flatland riding and our surroundings together to create an immersive feel.
