Martin became interested in flatland about 15 years ago while watching some kids doing tricks in an open space close to where he used to work. It was so different from anything he had ever seen, and he was totally shocked about his realization that this was the coolest thing he had ever seen. It was truly love at first sight.
Martin bought his first bike as quickly as could save up enough money. He very soon recognized that it would be necessary to practice almost every day if he was to become an excellent professional competitor.
During his “flatland career”, Martin has taken part in more than 100 competitions in many European countries. He considers winning 2nd place in the Czech and Slovak National Championship to be one of his greatest achievements. Martin is extremely proud of his 1st place in the Nokia FISE competition.
For Martin, flatland is more than just a sport. It is first and foremost a way of life. Thanks to freestyle BMX, Martin has had the opportunity to travel to many foreign countries. Still, his fans can see him mostly in Prague training on the piazzetta near the Czech National Theatre. Martin believes he will be able to continue in his favourite sport at least until he will be in his late-forties.
