After two successful international BMX Flatland Contests (under the name Wittenberger Flatland Ball in 2005 and 2010) Flatland will return to Wittenberg for a third round of action! New name, new location! This year the contest is moving out of the skatehall into a building with a colorful past. The „Schweizer Garten“ (Swiss Garden) was built around 1900 as a dancing-hall. During the following century it was used for pretty much everything – from warehouse to women’s refuge. A few years ago tattoo artist Danny Zimmermann bought the building and is renovating it in order to restore it’s original purpose as an event location.
For the contest a 200 sqm wood floor will be installed on the the former dance floor to provide perfect conditions for the flatland riders. A sound and lighting system will bring back the original flair of the building. If the weather will allow if then everyone is welcome to enjoy the barbeque, chilled atmosphere and a cold drink outside.
The date is July 20 and therefore 1 week after the BMX Worlds in Cologne. All international guests who would like to stay a bit longer in Germany after the Worlds are more than welcome. The contest will have an amateur and a pro class.
