Round 1 of the 2018 UK Flatland Championships took place last weekend in Margate, Kent. Margate is a seaside town about an hour and half from central London for all of you reading this outside of the UK. Matti Hemmings once again is the man behind making the event happen, this year a different location and a better set up. Dreamlands, an amusement park smack on Margate seafront which somewhat bizarrely to me, goes in land rather than out towards the sea, two years ago we sat on the seafront having fish n chips after the Wheels and Finns festival and wondered what Dreamlands was. A great use of space and in terms of planning, this place is epic. You wouldn’t know this amusement park was even there, if you drive along the seafront road.
Matthias Dandois celebrated his 29th birthday in style winning the Bike Days 2018 contest in Solothurn, Switzerland followed on the podium by Dustyn Alt who had an amazing run and banger trick, Dustyn was followed by Dominik Nekolny on the podium. It’s been a great weekend in Switzerland, one of the best contest floors of the year and always good vibes.
Congratulations to Terry Adams who took the win at the Azteca contest in Mexico City, followed by Dominik Nekolny in second, and Jean William Prevost in third place. That is a big win for Terry, can’t wait to see some footage from this event.
