What started as a bike project to help 2 riders turned into something bigger. There were many leftover parts from the intial project, so Ordep from the Phil thought up the master plan of holding online flatland battles. The winners to receive all the leftover prizes as well as improve their skills by battling each other in online videos, and keep the scene pumped.

Realizing both the need for quality parts and the effort they were putting in, I spread the word and got alot of parts donated or sold cheap, as a bonus to the prize package. Since the start (July 2009) approximately 10 frames have been shipped over and hundreds of parts, all much needed. Only seeing pics of befores and afters can explain.

Many riders progressed alot and the scene has been growing steadily with the projects being very motivational.

The thank you list. Too many to remember, but I really want to thank Shane Badman and Ross Lavender for both personal contributions, as well as contiued support from Newcircle. Thanks to Clint Millar from Colony BMX, Pat from Flatlandfuel, Marcel Tremblay from the USA, Calvin Tan from Singapore, Gonz and team at Flipbykes, Ordep from Phil, Sean Brousard from Texas, USA, Jazzman from USA, Alex (Flem) from France, Sakis Doumis from Greece, Mike Brandt from Perth, Mik Dwyer, Grant Cruise and Kit McKenna from Melbourne, Ben McGuinness and Andrew Lightbody from Sydney, all whom donated parts or sold at very low prices made this project possible. Most of these parts ended up in the Phil. (a few parts ended up in South America and Vietnam for projects there.) The project has been going since July 2009, so I’m sorry if I forgot names. Thank you to all who supported, put time in and helped in many ways.

Cheers.

Karl Hughes
