I met Dan Margetts last week in Bristol for a flatland session. Dan was a regular on the UK contest flatland scene during the 2000’s, and vanished all of a sudden. I said to Matti Hemmings, what happened to Dan? Find out more about this seedy fella who doesn’t drink beer because it tastes like earwax…..

It seemed like the perfect time to find out what’s going on with Dan and where his mindset is at. If you don’t know Dan’s riding, check the recent Worcester to Bristol edit out on Flatmattersonline!
