I guess like many of you, you received the BMX masters press release today, it’s kinda weird after the “flatland eats itself” post today, that one of the longest and biggest flatland contests of the year is now no more.
“Flatland has been growing and the demands on the right surrounding area and surface with it! It has become very specific up to a point where we are unable to fulfill the needs of the today´s flatlander at the Jugendpark.”
It wasn’t just flatland, vert has fell victim as well, despite being one of the best events last year. So there will be only Dirt, Park and Super Ramp. It’s a sad week for flatland, with the news of no worlds and now this.
