iBMXff Flatland World Championships – NASS July 8/10th!!

Nass_Flatland_Anno_1080x1080_v01_04May16

Amazing news finally official today, after going back and forth with the organisers for a few months. Flatland is now a big part of the IBMXFF Worlds this year in the UK, proud to be involved along with James White. Read on for the official press release and book your tickets to Nass, it’s going to go off!

NASS and the iBMXff are really excited to announce that flatland is coming to the Worlds. With the BMX Freestyle World Championships being hosted in the UK for the first time since 1988, it was always essential that flatland was included. The iBMXff flatland world championships will be hosted at NASS on a brand new specially built outdoor stage. Here you can witness an array of the best international flatland BMXers performing tricks that have formed the basis for much of freestyle BMX.

Flatland is the start of it all. From riders rebelling against BMX racing and doing their first ‘curb endos’, to inspiring modern day BMX freestyle legends like Mat Hoffman and Dave Mirra. Without flatland, BMX would not be where it is today. Therefore, with such a strong heritage and influence on BMX it is easy to see why NASS and the iBMXff have worked tirelessly to ensure that we will be able to crown the world flatland champion.

The flatland championships will be run by top UK flatland BMX pro, James White, and Effraim Catlow, former flatland world champion (1994) and founder and editor of flatland BMX site, Flatmatters. We asked Effraim what it means to see the world flatland championships coming to the UK:

The World’s best flatland riders will do battle for the honour to be crowned the “2016 World Champion” this year at Nass. We are proud to bring the World Championships back to the UK for the first time since the 80’s. Who can deliver on the day and handle the pressure that has seen many a great rider crumble in the past? It’s sure to be one of the most amazing events in recent years, and it’s on home turf! Make sure you are there to watch it unfold! Flatmatters!
