Cyclone Racer
Cyclone Racer starts off with a horizontal "1 " mount. It then goes into a "Reverse Double or Nothing" (aka "Man on Trapeze & his Brother"), then a "Double or Nothing", then a "Windmill" into a "Man on Trapeze", then a roll into a "Triple or Nothing" and ending with a double "Windmill" back into a "Man on Trapeze" and finally with a "Flyaway" dismount.


Picture
First you begin with a horizontal "1 " mount. Throw a breakaway. Let the yo-yo go over your left index finger and continue to go over your right index finger.



The yo-yo swings under the right index finger.



It then makes contact with the string. Give it some slack.



The yo-yo hits the top string and makes its way around the right index finger.



When the mount is complete this is what it should look like.



It's now time to dismount it, by reversing what you just did. Flip the yo-yo off the string.



Swing it around your right index finger.



Around...



..and around.


Picture
It's now time to go into a "Reverse Double or Nothing", also known as "Man on Trapeze & his Brother".


Picture
Let the yo-yo continue to swing around.....


Picture
....and around....




Picture
Let the string make contact with the right index finger about 2-3 inches from the yo-yo. You're aiming for the yo-yo to land on the outer yellow string.

The yo-yo lands on the string. You've just completed "Man on Trapeze and his Brother" (aka "Reverse Double or Nothing")


Picture
It's now time to go into a 'Double or Nothing.' Flip the yo-yo off the string.


Picture
It continues to travel around...


Picture
...and around...


Picture
Let it go around your left index finger.


Picture
...and around...


Picture
It then goes around your right index finger.


Picture
Now it goes around your left index finger again and aim it to land on the outer yellow string.



Once landed, you have "Double or Nothing." We'll now switch camera angles to view the trick from the front.

NOTE: You are now looking at it from the front as if you're watching someone perform it. From your perspective, the right hand is to your left and the left hand is to your right.



Now drop the string that goes around your right index finger. Next, swing your hand to the right in a semi-circle motion (shown with blue mini-arrows).



The yo-yo will come around.



After it completes the rotation, you're back in the "Man on Trapeze" position. From this point we'll roll into a "Triple or Nothing".



Next insert your right index finger into the loop of string that goes around your left index finger.



Expand the loop like so.



With your left hand, make the yo-yo do 2 rotations by swinging your hand to the left in a semi-circle motion (shown with blue mini-arrows).



The yo-yo will go around...



...and around...



...and around...



...and finally around again but this time you aim it to land on the outer strings.



Once landed, you're in the "Triple or Nothing" position.



You're now going to begin 2 "Windmill" rotations before going into the "Flyaway" dismount.

The first thing is drop the 2 loops of string that goes around your right index finger. Next, swing your hand to the right in a semi-circle motion (shown with blue mini-arrows).



You'll do 2 rotations.



The yo-yo will come around.



After it completes the rotations, you're back in the "Man on Trapeze" position. Finish the trick by doing a "Flyaway" dismount, which is flipping the yo-yo up in the air and catching it.


The "Cyclone Racer" is a neat routine that uses a a variety of the tricks you've previously learned.
