The 2016 Flatmattersonline Year End Award Winners are….

It’s time to announce the 2016 Flatmattersonline Year End Awards! Congratulations to all the winners, and also nominees! Plenty of you voted again this year in all seven categories, making it uber tight in some categories! I will be catching up with the winners over the next week for address details, and for interviews during the next few months.

Whilst I was going through the months via the Lookback features on the site it became apparent to me that one rider in particular unselfishly took himself out of the running for the World Circuit title in order to help make our sport more credible, whilst also throwing down an incredible edit and placing well at so many events throughout the year. Not forget his running his brand as well, so like last year as I hinted when I announced the awards, there is an extra category!

Thank you once again to everyone that voted, let’s make 2017 another great year for Flatland!
