Flatland back in major contests?

Fat Tony from Ride US has written a very interesting article about modern flatland & it's potential to be back in the spotlight with the rest of BMX. With big contests like Ninja Spin & Jomopro is it too far to think that flatland could be included in the Dew Tour???

The last time flatland was in the X-Games it was all Simon O'Brien taking the Gold...

In Australia we've been lucky that the BMX Games have always included flatland. Like anything there have always been a few challenges along the way, but judging by the recent contest in January it looks they've got the formula right.

For the future & growth of flatland - not to mention an opportunity for riders to make a living from riding, I think it would be great to have flatland back alongside the rest of BMX.
