Yesterday on a moody bank holiday weekend about 20 of the Uk flatland community headed down to Brighton seafront, for a day at the seaside and chilled riding day. Some new faces, and of course some old. Heres a few photos from the day.
Dane Beardsley just announced the rider list for STD2, Akira section on there, Shintaro, Dane, Markus Redlberger, Sebastien Grubinger, as well as the rest which are normal cast now. Look forward to this…
This week belongs to Martti Kuoppa, creating a site for you the rider, this is not about him, but about you. Yours truly has been given my own thread on there, which im really stoked on! Get involved, ask questions, and gain feedback, get motivated, below is the link to the forum.
Martti Kuoppa is a leader. Years ago in a magazine, I think it was Ride uk, I called him the leader of the new school, the name has stuck, but this guy leads more than just the riding, now he gives something back, and gives others the chance to shine, ask yourself a question? What is flatland about? What got you into it? What are the best feelings about it? Time and time again, I hear people say the “creative process” of coming up with something thats your own, and capturing it. You could be that rider, out there and without knowing it inspire many others. Its the creative riders that stand out from the pack.
Heres what Martti had to say about the launch: “I really want to my best to support the younger riders out there. I want to show them the right way which I understood a long time after my crazy years in success. It is not always easy to be in the spotlight, and thats why I want to show the younger generation the right positive way to handle things. (edit) Riders be greatful for what you have now.Also show some respect and learn some new styles/tricks. We are out here just to help you out, not to profit.Let’s go together to the next level of flatland, and save the whole thing!! Thanks!! “
Check the site, which looks dialled!!! Bios from Marrti, Viki and Chad. Look under competition to see what we are looking for!! Get riding, get creative!! Im psyched on this!! http://www.ground-tactics.com
