HISTORY The annual JoMoPro flatland contest started in 2009 as an addition to the existing BMX park contest that was already in its fourth year. Using the venue and resources provided by the amazing staff at The Bridge, a team of volunteers including head organizer Pat Schoolen (from Flatland Fuel) stepped up to help introduce the flatland contest, which quickly became a huge success.
"The JoMoShowdown and JoMoPro events built on the desire to provide a platform for up and coming BMX riders and Skateboarders to compete against and develop relationships with other riders/skaters from all over the world. We want to provide a fun and well executed competition experience for the up and coming riders and skaters in the Midwest and beyond. As well as provide an opportunity for people from the community to experience BMX and Skateboarding first hand." -The Bridge
