He flicks the seat in the air with his right foot as he jumps, brilliant.

The kick up mount is a pretty standard trick, it's not as difficult as it looks. The seat slides up the inside of your "kicking" leg and your leading foot helps to lever the uni upright. The key is to get your weight on the pedals before the seat can crush the important bits

The flip dismount is amazing and completely genius, I had to watch it again and again. The tandem riding with the girl sharing the pedals looks incredibly difficult to learn, they're both very talented!
