Here are a few words from the official press release:

"Another exciting final on the flatland stage! The crowd were mesmerised by the creativity and style of the flatland final. Jean William Prevost had a perfect run and he showed why he was last years champion, his control and execution were flawless and he was delighted to take home the win “I’m more than blessed to do this in my second home China” In second was Moto Sasaki he completed at least 5 really good long combinations and scored a well deserve 90.00 points. In third was familiar face on the podium Matthias Dandois who packed his run full of signature tricks.

An absolutely amazing year for flatland in the first ever UCI BMX Freestyle Flatland World Cup. It came down to the wire between 2 really good friends Alex Jumlin and Matthias Dandois. The two French riders pushed each other constantly as they battled in events across the world. Alex didn’t find his rhythm here in China and finished 4th. Matthias Dandois managed to hold on to the top place making him our overall winner for the second year

Japan, proves once again why it is considered the sacred land of the BMX Flat, dominating the BMX Flatland World Cup standings. Misaki Katigari is at the top of the table and ahead of the other Japanese rider Eri Futnasu. Perseverance and patience brought her the victory. Third place, is occupied by the French rider Céline Vaes who has distinguished herself brilliantly this season."
