What a load of bullsh*t. There was nothing in his run that put him over Moto or Dominik. Nothing. f*ck flatland judges. Seriously.

i know it is very important for the riders, but i personally don't care at all who won. To me flatland is not a competition. but this is just my way of seeing it off course.

I just wish we could talk more and see more videos of all the other guys who were riding, rather than just talking about the top 3 and why and how number 1 did or did not deserve his win...

I thought it was really close, but in the end I can see why Matthias won. He only touched briefly and the others came off the bike entirely and Moto retried several times on that crazy front wheel thing (most impressive trick of the three runs here though). More importantly I thought Matthias had more tricks stacked up in his combos and he had the most "dynamic" run in that he almost looks out of control a lot, but is able to somehow reel it all in. I guess some parts of his combos are "old" or whatever, but they're sick old combos. Should that really count against him? Dom maybe shoulda had it because he was really solid and had big bomb switches. It's a tough call.

disclaimer: I am in no way qualified to judge a pro flatland event.

I also don't think im very qualified as a judge, but from my general observations of competitive riding from Am to Pro, Large Portions of Matthias run was more like High level Master class..for example his first front wheel link...how man years has Matthias done that cross foot wheel chair barflip on to the ground..your telling me he can barflip in to a Karl or somethin.. :rolleyes:

On another note, I congradulate Moto for Pulling that last trick. I know this is a competition..and consistency is highly rated(maybe overated), but he took a risk, as did Dominik in their runs..and they should definately be rewarded for that. Risk.

i think matthias did a great run and also moto it's really hard to pick a winner.
also for me this was my first contest and it was extremelly fun and very well organized i will be back the next year for sure.
If I ever see a flat rider do a hop-to-wallride, my head would explode.
