Battle of Elsinore 1998 went down in Toronto, Canada. An event that was once primarily a flatland event went street, and flatland eventually got the axe from the program. I'm not sure about the details on the organizational end, but the name changed and the annual event is now known as the Metro Jam.

Despite all this, in 1998, flatland was embarking on a journey into a new era, as Martti Kouppa made his debut on the global flatland scene.

After a mesmerizing run at World Championships, rumors were flying everywhere in North America-"Dude, there's this guy in Europe, he's like the next Kevin Jones!"

Sponsored by Chiquita Bananas and adorned in bright colors, it was hard to miss Martti Kuoppa, throwing down the new tricks and styles people had been hearing about.

From that point on, Martti continued to change the face of flatland, chronicled in the Intrikat video series.

This clip also showcases other flatland moguls of the time, Chad Degroot, Andrew Faris, Dan Rigby, Brian Tunney, and Cory Stratychuk. There's also a Dan Rigby interview as a bonus!

I personally feel that in this era, the most varied types of techniques were being widely used in flatland- rolling, scuffing, barflips, front brake, back brake, turbines, g-turns, undertakers, etc. -Framestand locomotive to cross-footed stick-b, sick!
