“The pros have voted and here’s your top five nominees for NORA Flat Rider Of The Year. Congrats to Jean-William Prevost, Kio Hayakawa, Matthias Dandois, Terry Adams, and Yu Katagiri. Who’s got it this year?! The pandemic won’t let us have a party this year, so we’ll be debuting winners online in the coming weeks. Stay tuned…” – OurBMX
For me, it’s gotta be Matthias Dandois. Technically, when it comes to flatland tricks, Matthias has the lot: front wheel tricks, switch tricks, rear-wheel tricks, flowing tricks, speed, spinning and carving, and nutso combos… along with a bunch of impossible NBDs that leave you constantly asking WTF? All this, plus, Matthias is a public figure. This means, his riding reaches beyond our BMX circle, thanks to his film work, Red Bull promos, modeling, PR with Vans and Haro, plus international travel, and much, much more – Matthias showcases how incredible flatland riding is, to a massive worldwide audience. And that’s good for BMX.
