The local scene in Annecy, France hosted a jam at one of the most beautiful backdrops with a flatland spot to celebrate the creation of their association, Tartiflat. Good vibes!

You could liken the UK flatland scene to a sleeping giant, plenty of talent all over the country but nowhere to showcase it. That changed with the vision of Matti Hemmings to try and get flatland included into the Cycle Show at the Birmingham NEC. Matti invited me to get involved and help with the organisation and promotion of the event, from our perspective anything that happened during the weekend was a bonus as before nothing has happened in years.
We are happy to say the event was a success, few lessons learnt and we plan on holding a series of events next year, thanks for everyones support! Lets do this, hit play and soak up the UK vibe! Thanks Jason Forde for this awesome edit, especially as he didn’t plan on filming!
Josh Briars, Pinoski, Keelan Phillips, James White, Alex Jumelin, Matthias Dandois, and Martti Kuoppa.
