2015 was an amazing year for flatland. Looking back at the year, Viki Gomez started the year strongly with back to back wins at Bike Days and Barcelona Extreme, and later sealing the World Circuit crown with a win at Real City Spin.
But from September 4th, it was all about one man. Martti Kuoppa broke the internet with his ten stemlashes clip, then came over to the UK Champs and performed one of the best runs I have ever seen to take home the win as well as at Level Vibes.
In my opinion, much of 2015 hung on one thing, Flatark. Almost every one was there (which is rare these days), 40K on the line, but what surprised me is that not a lot of riders brought that lil’ extra to take the win at the biggest contest of the year! We all know one man did that, Martti Kuoppa!
My vote for Editorial Rider of the Year goes to Martti Kuoppa, with team mate Viki Gomez the runner up.
Congratulations to Martti Kuoppa dominating the 2015 Flatmattersonline Year end awards this year, this year you will see the contest level go up and you have one man to thank for that!
