Kelvingrove Park is the stage where riders will compete in 2-3 minute rounds to show the very best of their athletic and artistic ability.
It’s a totally unique event, more rap battle than road race, where the crowd gets just as hyped as the competitors. The surfaces may be flat, but the atmosphere is anything but!
Attempting and nailing a variety of tricks in a natural flow is everything for a high scoring Flatland round. As well as raw talent and pure creativity, judges are looking for consistency when it comes to balance, stability and control of both body and bike.
Expect bikes being wrestled into impossible angles, superhuman skills that defy reality, and riders in spin cycles… literally. With the speed the tricks are attempted at, it’s easy for them to get dizzy. But for those that want maximum points, floor touches are to be kept to a minimum.
Every single Flatland run is unique.
So make sure you catch them live at Kelvingrove.
