We feel that Jason is a perfect fit for our team and are so glad to have him with us. Original, determined and such a great dude. 2014 is going to be awesome! Welcome aboard Jason! So honored to have you riding for us!”
When you learn one move and a whole heap of progression comes out of that is one of the best feelings riding flatland. Turn up the liquid dnb and watch Paul work some freshly learned turbine whiplashes.

Markus got in contact looking for help sponsorship wise with a Flatland BMX School he is running, read on!
How I came to the idea to start the project “Flatland BMX School?”
“When I was a kid I also went to a BMX Flatland School that was organized in the next bigger city quite close from my village. I was so happy to be a part of it and at the and i won the small Flatland School Contest .. that was awesome. So now I´m riding my BMX for 10 years and decided that i will do the same great thing this summer – a BMX Flatland School for kids that a new on there bike. The Flat School gave me so much motivation that i still ride today and this is the aspect i wanna give these kids! Today I designed my first logo for the school and I´m still on the search for the on or other sponsor that could offer a few gifts that I could give away as prices for the winners of the BMX Flatland School.
Would be awesome if some company could give my a little support to make my event and the final contest an unforgettable event for the little riders!”
