Like everyone when the iBMXff World Championships were announced a few months back, I thought “Where the hell is Flatland?”, there were various trains of thoughts from most of the flatland community, but it seemed summed up with “it’s not the worlds without flatland”, emails went back and forth. If I am being honest, I didn’t think Flatland would be included with budgets and all….

Dustyn Alt hit me up with some contest news, he has got involved in the organisation of the annual 100 psi contest that goes down in Dresden, Germany. So far Dustyn and helpers have raised 650 Euros prize money but are shooting for 1000E.
