For many years, European flatland contests were all about the jam circles. I just came across this edit from Flatground 2 that conveys that perfectly, featuring Raphael Chiquet, Alex Jumelin, Frank Lucas, Martti Kuoppa, and Eno Yang. Really enjoyed this one!

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….

Peep the official edit from the NASS organisers, here is the iBMXff World Championships from last weekend in Shepton Mallet. Even though you can’t tell from the edit, the wind was ridiculous! In a nice touch to finish the edit, Dennis McCoy was the last rider to win the Worlds in the UK, and he presented the title to Matthias Dandois!
