What about the French guys?

I bet Christophe Dassiť, Alexis Desolneux, Sebastian Bonnot and Armin Batoumeni are in their mid 30's. Does anyone know?

Were are the french riders?

  Hi,guys,

  I'm totally new to this site,and am the oldest active flatlander in my country,both in longevity,and in age.I am only 34, and have been riding since 1984,which is nothing compared to mutt,or kevin jones,but I hope to get there,I live in the Dominican Republic,and there are 3 other active riders from my generation.Nonetheless,it is the same thrill to do a backpacker to cross-footed hitchhiker than to do a cherry picker,at least that's what I think,Flatland is more of an attitude than a tech spec sheet,that should be left for golf players.Anyway,I am glad to join global flat,and want to say hi to pete brandt ,Chase Gouin and jesse puente for being living examples that age ain't nuttin' but a number!saludos tambien a fernando bayone en espana,y a sergio y borja,sus alumnos.(that was a shoutout in spanish to some kids I met in madrid last month,who were rockin'!).Peace.
