Matti`s sport is flatland BMX. Flatland BMX is an extremely stylish and impressive form of BMXing, utilising fantastic levels of core strength and balance to get the bike to do what you want it to do.
“ Flatland has given me a freedom of expression, it is as much of an art form as it is a sport and has become an important part of my life. It works the brain as well as the body, with the endless combinations that can be created. It is a fantastic way of movement on a BMX.” - Matti Hemmings
In 2010 Matti turned professional performing in national touring shows, organising and hosting events and delivering workshops. In his spare time you can usually find him on tennis courts, abandoned swimming pools or car parks riding and developing new tricks in his unique riding style.
In 2011 Matti Hemmings founded the UK Flatland BMX Championships. It was held in Newport, South Wales as part of the Big Splash Festival. Its aim was to support UK Flatlander BMXers, whilst bringing together both Amateur and Professional Riders from across the UK to a contest environment where both groups had their own individual contests to compete in. The event was hugely successful with over 2000 people in attendance, and plans were put in place to make the 2012 Championships to be an even bigger success.
In 2012 Matti toured with the Olympic Torch Relay & Paralympics Torch Relay and performed for LLoyds TSB & Bank of Scotland across the UK taking part on the convoy, bring excitement to the streets before the Torch Bearers ran passed them. He was involved with the evening celebrations performing on main stage and around the showcase areas.
