• Dropping In- The World is Flat October 4,2015


    There has been an avalanche of BMX Flatland lately, I had to devote this column to the splendor of BMX Flat. Last weekend was one of the busiest weekends of the year for contests and jams, especially in Europe. Here are results from the contests that were held at the end of September and early October: UK BMX Flat Championships, Parisiana Jam, Urban Waves in Belgium, and IOXC in Indonesia.
