Today Martti Kuoppa celebrates his 40th birthday, and it seems like the perfect day to celebrate one of the best to ever ride a flatland bike. In my opinion, MK managed to do the impossible. He managed to bond the artistic side with the athletic training side you need for contest riding, creating brand new tricks in the video parts and bringing them to contests at the same time and ride often flawlessly and take home titles (3 x X games, World Championships 2002, and so on) during this time period around 2000/2003 we have the intrikat parts that he contributed that are admired and untouched to this day.

During my time competing against Martti, I never felt like I was competing against him we were sharing new tricks and styles and pushing the motivation for the next contest where we would share again. I always go back to his 2002 Worlds run in Koln as one of the best runs of all time, this run has everything. Much respect Martti, and thank you for all you have done for flatland and continue to do so with MOC. I call him the boss for a reason.
