Hey all, my name is Matt (and Mattlander to some) and I've been riding flatland since highschool, around 2002. I'm from Southern NJ (rode Atlantic City and Ocean City mostly) but didn't have any friends that stuck around with flatland. Rode with a ton of bmx riders of other disciplines though.

In 2012 I got married and move to Virginia for work and have been living here since. I've seen a bunch of new street/park riders recently and found a couple new flatland riders thanks to Instagram.

After a nearly 5 year hiatus from riding in any serious manner, I've been riding several times a week and relearning everything! I'm planning to attend York Jam '21 and bringing another rider (his name is Adel), it will be his first time seeing more than 2 flatland riders in one place! :D

Hey all, I rode freestyle as a kid in the mid/late 80s before switching to skateboarding. Did that mostly until MTB/Freeride in my 20s brought me back into bikes. Tried flatland briefly but didn't have the patience. Fast forward almost another 20 years, and at 46 more MTB/DJ led to getting another flatland bike. Had the first couple solo sessions and it really brings me back to being 10 years old again. It's wild how the muscle memory is still there for some of those basic old school tricks but I'm really fascinated by the modern rolling tricks. Hope to be able to get into some of them in the future.
