UK Ride #91 mini-review

UK Ride is reppin flatland to the fullest again this month, and the trend looks set to continue with their all-new Flat Matters column. Regular readers of the Global-Flat pages will be more than up-to-date with the majority of news featured in this month’s issue, but it’s really nice to see a national BMX magazine committing itself to flatland coverage on a regular basis.
One rather noteworthy article in Ride #91 is the announcement that Viki Gomez is planning a kind of governing body for flatland competition judging, the goal of which is to (among other things) standardize the judging and format of flatland competitions. With input from Chad Johnston, the FIA (Flatland International Association) aims to move the sport towards increased professionalism and better presentation. You’ll find other important KGB news on the same page, like an announcement from Martti about their 3rd frame release…
Hot on the heels of George French’s wheel building article from Ride #90 is part 2; the bedding in of those newly built wheels is explained. Day Smith’s Quamen G6 setup is revealed in the Pro bike check, and there are 2 detailed interviews with 2 riders arguably at the top of their game, Cory Fester and Simon O’Brien. A very nice photo sequence of an impossible-looking Cory combo and a very open interview with Simon make Ride #91 the perfect coffee table companion – get yours now!
