Terry Adams hit me up with some great news for the US flat scene, read on!
The Launch of The AM (American) Flatland Circuit
In 2011 the AM Flatland Circuit will be reorganized as the AM (American) Flatland Circuit with the addition of a Pro Series. Having two divisions within the circuit, the Am Series and the Pro Series, allows for an established ranking system for Pro Flatland Riders. “Adding a Pro Series to the AM Flat Circuit will bring a sense of organization and community to the Pro Flatland World. There are a lot of awesome events taking place in America and the circuit will increase turnout at these events, offer a ranking system and most importantly be a lot of fun” says Pro BMX Flatland Rider, Matt Wilhelm.
The AM Flatland Circuit was started to help create much needed structure within the BMX Flatland community in North America. AM Flatland Circuit Founder Steve Lapsley states “having a legitimate ranking system is something riders have been wanting. There wasn’t a system in place that would help guide amateur riders from the beginner level to the professional level”. With the initial launch of the AM Flatland Circuit in 2010 an amateur ranking system was established where an Expert and Master Champion were crowned at year end. “The addition of a Pro Circuit is the natural progression” says Lapsley.
The news of the progression of the AM Flatland Circuit has gained much excitement for the sport. “I’m super stoked for the future of Flatland and really excited that the Pro Series has been added to the AM Flatland Circuit” says Pro BMX Flatland Rider, Terry Adams.
