Scott O'Brien is organizing flatland at the BMX Cologne (aka BMX Masters) this year and is going to pimp that good old tent: "It took us a while to figure out how to present Flatland in a fresh way compare to the previous years, when we were using a tent to cover the Flatland area. And what we came up with is very colorful and different indeed. Our Original 80’s Bumper Car arena will be the Flatlanders playground for the weekend. Flatland will now not only be a sporting highlight, but also an optical highlight of the event. As you will notice, the BMX COLOGNE will hold more changes in store. Also new will be the crew in charge of running the event. No other than the uncrowned King MC Mr. Scott O'Brien the mastermind behind Voodo Jam in the USA and French Flatland legend Alex Jumelin are helping out to meet all participants’ expectations."
