I’m really enjoying doing these “Catching Up” interviews and today I interview Todd Carter, one of the smoothest riders in the flatland game and a man that doesn’t get enough credit in the flatland scene. Lot of history with Todd’s longevity in the sport. It was great to interview Todd and hear his story, grab a cuppa and enjoy this episode:
00:56: How long has Todd been riding for, and how did he get into flatland?
3:13: What was Todd’s first flatland competition?
4:38: I never knew that myself and Todd both rode for Hutch, and the Ohio scene shaping Todd’s riding.
8:00: What are some of Todd’s favourite memories from the AFA Masters?
10:29: How flatland is good for physical and emotional health, and forget about life issues?
11:54: What can modern day flatland learn from era such as the AFA masters where there 130 people in Todd’s class?
14:20: Moving from Ohio to Los Angeles and living the Californian dream.
17:45: Moving back to Ohio and building a flatland spot.
21:40: Coming from that era where what music you rode to was a big deal. What music is Todd into?
23:42: Bringing the American Flatland Association back.
26:00: Having two kids that both ride flatland.
29:36: The transition from expert rider to professional.
32:35: Plans for 2018?
33:21: Being a good rolemodel for the flatland scene, and what device would he give to the future generations?
