In just a few short days, BMX flatland may start to make a change in the USA. As flatland will be introduced to the Dew Tour in Ocean City, Maryland. Many people have wanted this to happen for many years since flatland has been dropped from most major BMX contests in the USA. May of you have called, emailed, and texted. Heck we even stared a petition to try and get people attention that this is something that we want to happen http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dewtourflatland/.
Terry Adams has been blowing it up lately about this event. “It’s very exciting because it’s a part of flatland history. It’s our chance to make a great impression, so thats our main goal”
Here are a few interviews Terry has done the past few days.
Us as flatlanders need to show our support of this event and tell the world about it. If you see a Facebook post about it, Tweet, instagrm, vimeo, youtube video, my action to you is to WATCH, READ, COMMENT, SHARE, LIKE, AND LOVE!
