This will be the 4th annual OG flatland camp and contest in a row, which now gathers flatland riders from all over the world. The Summer Gypsy Games is a very relaxed and joyful event, and despite all the major flatland contests, there will be enough space to practice for everybody. You will not have to worry if you prefer longer rolling combos, the floor is suitable for all types of riding.
We chose the city of Ajka to do the event for many reasons: it is a small city so the distances are negligible, there are three good asphalt handball courts right next to one another, in a very nice environment, and the youth hostel is cca. 10 metres away from the courts. So everything is packed together for a really good event. Plus, Ajka is dirt cheap, there are supermarkets, pubs and pizzerias 150m away from the place of the event. A pizza costs 950HUF (4 euro), one beer costs 300HUF (1.25 Euro).
There will be the flatland camp from Monday till Friday. You can ride as much as you want, make friends, hang out at night, whatever you want. Many people get so much motivation here that lasts for a long time.
There will be three classes: Expert, Master and Pro.
Registration: 500HUF (2 Euro) in each class.
The qualifiers will be held on Saturday, so everybody will have time to get used to the floor. The finals will be on Sunday, the top 8 riders will qualify from each group.
There will be no prize money, just gifts from the OG Bike Company. We did not want this event to look like a big commercial type of contest, we just do it for fun. The event is for everybody who wants to have a good time and progress.
