You could liken the UK flatland scene to a sleeping giant, plenty of talent all over the country but nowhere to showcase it. That changed with the vision of Matti Hemmings to try and get flatland included into the Cycle Show at the Birmingham NEC. Matti invited me to get involved and help with the organisation and promotion of the event, from our perspective anything that happened during the weekend was a bonus as before nothing has happened in years.
We are happy to say the event was a success, few lessons learnt and we plan on holding a series of events next year, thanks for everyones support! Lets do this, hit play and soak up the UK vibe!
I didnt plan to film for the uk champs i was actually to busy having a good time riding as well as catching up with people, when i did pick up the camera this is what i caught, mostly footage from practice. I'm sure there will be better edits coming very soon, this is my take of the sunday.
Thanks to everybody that came over the weekend and a special thanks to Matti and Effraim for their hard work.
