It’s time to announce the winners of the 2021 Flatmattersonline Year End Awards, as well as show some love to the nominees….
It’s a labour of love putting this together, after two weeks filming, capturing, and editing, the show is finally is done!
If you are unfamiliar with the awards, there are 5 categories in both editorial and reader choice. I made a few changes this year, adding Female Rider of the Year + Brand of the Year to the awards.

Grab a Cuppa and I Hope you enjoy the show!
