Flatland is a family, and especially here in Spain, we are lucky enough to have a big family that celebrates and enjoys flatland a lot. Of course everyone knows Viki Gomez, and Alberto Moya, Guelo Monzon, Miguel Tardio, Varo Hernandez, and slowly Mario Correas are familiar names tomost and have been moving around the planet to contests for years, but Vigo and O´Marisquiño is a celebration of all Spanish riders, those just starting and those that have been riding forever. This was the 15th Marisquiño and at least the 7th time flatland has been involved.
