Press Release:

For Immediate Release (August 2012): King of Flatland 25th Anniversary Jam and Contest, reunites riders from across the country and across generations.

Rye, New Hampshire: In the late 80′s and early 90′s, New England’s King of Flatland contest series brought the era’s best local and regional riders together not only to compete, but to ride, jam, and in retrospect, make great friends and memories.

Now, 25 years later, the Cote family did it again, bringing some of those original riders, some of the original riders’ kids, and some amazing new school riders together for the King of Flatland 25th Anniversary Jam and Contest.

Held August 4th, in the parking lot outside of Rye Airfield in Rye, NH, the event drew riders from as far away as California, Oregon, Mississippi, and Canada, as well as from all over New England.

The day had a great turnout, reuniting BMX friends and family, with great weather, and incredible riding. Where else can you see Nourie Handstands and Cherrypickers alongside Time Machine Combos and blazing Cliffhanger Turbines? In all, more than 35 riders competed, with Jim Cavanaugh, one of the original KoF riders, taking first in Pro, followed by Gabe Kadmiri then Luke Malone.

Keeping in line with the nostalgic atmosphere, the Veteran’s class saw riders who hadn’t been on a BMX bike in decades (pun intended). The atmosphere was pure fun, with as many laughs as there were killer tricks.

And, before blogs and Twitter, there were ‘zines, and the best ‘zine of the time, Radazine, later Wire, is now out with a new anniversary issue with 100 pages of memories including re-scanned classic photos and a DVD of some of the original contest run highlights. This was for sale at the event, but can also be purchased here. (http://ewirezine.com/kof25/)

About $1500 was raised for the local Boys & Girls Club, through entry fees, raffles, and an auction, and the event was generously supported by sponsors from within and outside of BMX.

The event was a huge success, and no one wants to wait another 25 years to do it again. Stay tuned for 2013.
