90degree unispin to tire comp?

Anyone up for it?

I havn't gotten one yet, and I need some sort of inspiration.. Anyone wanna join up?

If nobody wants to join, its cool, I need some sort of comp to get me off my ass, as well as the fact that it'll open up other doors to unicycling like sideways wheelwalks, and streetlanding tricks and whatever.

Name: Brendan Roman
Tricks: 3spin, Rolling wrap, varial, smallspin, and a few others.
Favorite Pizza topping: Sausage

Do you have to get back to your pedals, or is just 90 spin to wheel and then falling 5 seconds afterwards ok? Cause I've already done the second one...

Haha, back to the cranks/pedals.

I cant seem to do that.. I get on the tire, then lose balance.

I guess whatever is more comfortable.. I think i'll try spinning it back where I started after I jump off the tire. Tricks to me are generally harder when i land them with the uni facing me.

I just went out and did this on my MUni, it's way easier than you think it is, don't think, just do it. (I can unispin though, that may be part of it too )

I can 3spin, and this trick is actually harder than I thought it would be. Its staying balanced and hopping on the tire that i'm having trouble with. I'll get on the tire, then i'll try to jump back to the pedals, and one foot is pressing harder than the other, and it turns into a monkey kick, that I have no chance of landing anyway, lol.

I can hop all I want on the tyre and get back to cranks, but for some reason I just can't unispin to tyre, i have to mount onto it. Im close to a 540 unispin, and i can't even 90. It's just my defect i guess. I'd enter this comp, but I don't have my uni right now cuz it's in the shop, and I have a feeling the contest will be over really fast.

Good Luck everyone!
