KickAss Radio welcomes Joe Cicman, the famous Flatland expert rider, to talk about his personal journey in the world of extreme sports most especially Flatland BMX. Listen in as he shares stories about GuruJam, the most rider-centric contest to date and The TerraDome, his private indoor training facility.
Joe Cicman's been riding flatland for 27 years. Yes, almost 3 decades of spinning, twisting, gliding, leaping, bailing, and wrecking. Rarely do riders make it to this triumphant milestone. Five years ago, Joe reinvented himself and his style of riding. He decided to dive head first into the flatland world and start traveling the globe in search of competitions. This quest paid off. In 2011, he won the national title for the Expert division of the AmFlat Circuit.
Joe continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible. After winning the title, he decided he no longer needed brakes on his bike. He also spent months working out a deal to secure his private indoor training facility, known as The TerraDome. Riders have travelled from many other countries, just to take a spin in this world-famous warehouse. In October, Joe made his greatest contribution to flatland – The GuruJam. Perhaps this was the most rider-centric contest to date. Many think it was THE best contest in history. Either way, Joe continues to push the limits of what is possible both on and off the bike.
