Armin Batoumeni still rides, but Ulrich can't ride anymore due to an injury. Met Ulrich and Ali B. about 3.5 years ago. Ali is still riding.
Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

He got old and worn-out! ;D  Nah, some sort of foot injury. He had to quit riding about six or seven years ago.

Nick Watts was INSANE. He was the reason I just said f*ck it and started riding in my garage because the sh*t he used to do in like 8 x 8 spaces was just NUTS

I clearly remember Nick doing around 12 high speed whiplashes downhill at around age 12 or 13. At the time the record from the magazines was 16 by Kevin Jones bitd.

Ok, I edited my post with "some might still be riding". ;)
Its hard to know who still rides or not if they keep out of the spotlight.

Jeff desroche is not riding right now actually...he wants to ride...

but also wants to eat food....kind of sucks..since he was genuinely interested in going on a creative bender after watching Impulsivity...

he was looking for parts a while back since he doesnt have a complete built up bike right now.....

but he's not really getting any help from anyone...not that hes asked for it...but still....he is in limbo right now....

WTF? Screw the food, this is not f*cking Disneyland. Get him on a bike already! Next time you see Lachlan, take his bike away and give it to Jeff!!!
