Last weekend (on 1st May 2010), our beloved flatland rider, Ajiem and Faqe went to Odyssey Flatware Competition in Luton, London. Here are some stories from them.
“hello guys! just want to give some update from UK.
last weekend me, Syafiq & Aidwin went to Odyssey Flatware Flatland Competition that was held in Luton, London. it was a great event. this time we arrived a bit earlier than before (Level Vibes Comp) and once again we got very warm welcome from the TGM riders. they all are really friendly people yes they are. the competition started around noon. the weather was just unpredictable. sometime it was super hot and sometime it was super chill. even though it rains just a little, but luckily it doesn’t rain hard and when the competition about to start, the rain stopped. me and Syafiq were really super duper nervous at that time. Syafiq had to go to the toilet for few times to flush his Ponty Fish Bar’s kebab that he had on the night before. i was shivering from the beginning till the end of the competition because i also got scared. they said there’s a butterfly in my stomach. But i really respect Aidwin, he managed to stay calm all the time. Aidwin had to wear sunglasses like a tai chi master just to get a real good focus on his riding (sorry Aidwin, am just joking. hehehe). well basically this is what happen if you enter an international competition for the first time people! this is quality. hahaha the competition was judged using battle format. so, it does put big stressed on my a**, some more the surface was really bumpy. because the plywood doesn’t stick properly to the floor. but well, it’s better than nothing rite? the organiser, Aleks (owener of 75degreeszine.blogspot.com) did a good well done job. if i’m not mistaken, he managed to find all the good sponsors like Odyssey Flatware, Luton local city Council, flatland specific plywood surface and a good music systems + crews all by himself. he deserve big credits. much respect! this is what it mean by riders for riders. hopefully one day Malaysian BMX scene will become better like this or even better. i know we can. even now i can see that there are lot of good competition held in Malaysia rite? we just need some exposure to the world! pray for the best. hehehe. my overall comment : the atmosphere of the competition was really awesome, nice city landscape and views, good riding temperature 9-25 degree Celsius, good supportive Luton crowd and not forgetting loads of hot ChiQs near the fence cheering for us too. hahahaha it is just perfect! just really perfect! basically we all had so much fun. yeay!
and here is the the results : Pro Class 1) Keelan Phillips 2) James White 3) Steve Green
Am Class 1) Jimmy Bondi 2) Michael 2) Salvador Brown
Even though we didnt win. Well atleast we did our best and we showed some flavour to the contest like what Effraim Catlow said in his blog (flatmattersonline.blogspot.com) and best part is we manage to introduce Malaysian Flatlanders to the world. Malaysia Boleh!! the riding spirit is what really matter it was a good experience to compete in international competition. hohoho
p/s: owh ya, for your guys info. Phil Dolan tegur aku doe! mcm x percaya. much respect to that old guy! ini smua pasti mulut masin abg Rizal yg pasa suatu ketika dulu telah terpanggil aku dgn nama Jim Dolan. hahahaha

What happen on that day? Malaysian Flatland Award 2009 Won by Hezlan (Lan Ipoh) for the 1st place, 2nd place won by Pak Tam and 3rd place won by Pak Koq. there is one surprise award given by Mr. Rizal, that is Most Progressed Rider in 2009.. This award goes to Pak Koq who really progressed a lot in his riding last year. Highest bunnyhop contest won by Amy Hellboy (as usual), with the height or 5 Feet 2 inches. The prizes supposed to be some stuff sponsored by kayuhbmx and district, but suddenly an uncle some to us and he said that he like to see these boys riding. And he want to give money to the winner. At first, we thought he was bluffing, but he really did give us RM300 for the winner!! (WOW!). But unfortunately, he disappear when the competition finish. We dont know where did he goes. We actually planned for him to give the prize money to the winner, but too bad uncle, hope to see u around in the future. Epul (Floor Fever) gave us RM20 and Botaxx donate some RM2. So total prize for the winner is RM322. haha!! Lucky Amy!
I hope everybody had fun on that day. This is just a ghetto event. No big sponsors. Just a true friendship among all and support each other. BMX riders, Graffiti artis/bombers, B-Boys, DJs, and everybody, kayuhbmx salute you all.
