Battle In The Rockies: J-W Prevost and Cory Fester

Battle in the Rockies is a flatland contest taking place in Colorado Springs, CO on November 15. From my understanding, riders qualify for the contest by entering a 1 minute long video of themselves for a flatland video battle of sorts, which a panel of judges deliberate and determine your...

Flatland At The Toronto Bicycle Show – 2014
F1000017 France's Alex Jumelin up on the back wheel. This year the Flatland Unlimited contest at the Toronto International Bicycle Show celebrated their 10th year of putting on Toronto's foremost flatland competition. I've visited the event for well over a decade, and even competed (albeit not very well) back when it was put on under the Metro Jam umbrella. I shot a few photos of the activity going on in a far corner of the building. Not much of the competition or the riding, but flatlanders are a different and unique group and you can't help but notice that when seeing these riders that largely practice their craft in solitude come together as a group for an event. Check out a few more photos after the jump.

Saskatoon's Peter Olsen may arguably be one of the tallest flatlanders out there, and he's also one of few flatlanders supported by S&M Bikes. He has been talking about filming for a new web edit for them for some time now, so it's great to finally see all his hard...

Going to X-tremes: The Billy Borys Documentary

Terry Proveda has been telling me about this short documentary he has been working on for a while on Winnipeg flatland veteran Bill Borys. He just finished it and sent it over to me, and after one watch I'd have to say it's a very compelling and powerful piece on...

A Canadian Flatlander in Paris
Most people would question why a flatlander would travel to different spots. Aren't all parking lots the same? Not really, nor is the scene beyond the parking lot. Back in October, Prasheel Gopal traveled from Ottawa to Paris to ride with Matthias Dandois and enter the Urban Vibrations contest in Pessac. After a respectable third place in the master class, he returned to Canadian soil and sent me these camera phone photos. Click below to check them out.
