Martti Kuoppa
Finland
Martti Kuoppa is a Flatland BMX rider from Finland. He is widely recognised as one of the most skilled and most original riders in the history of the sport. He has invented and innovated many tricks on his quest for originality.[citation needed] He dominated the major contest scene between 2000 and 2002 as the winner of the BMX - flatland event at X Games VIII and has competed in and won a number of contests all over the world, such as the BMX Worlds in Germany in 2002.

Martti Kuoppa held two Guinness World Records for a time that he set in 2001: "Martti Kuoppa inscrit son nom au Guinness Book of Records with rolling no-footed on the front wheel of his bike for 100 meters and doing 59 pinky squeaks in a minute."

Brandon Fenton
Canada
Brandon has been riding BMX for 25 years with the majority of that time spent devoted to training and honing his skills in flatland. Over the course of that time he has risen to the professional ranks and competed successfully internationally while also earning several commercial spots, touring with various performing teams, and judging professional flatland competitions nationally and internationally. His most notable entrance to the professional ranks and international flatland scene was precipitated by his part in the first ever entirely brakeless flatland video “e-clips”, a duet flatland video alongside Chase Gouin (one of the all-time legends of flatland) distributed globally. Although he has been retired from committed professional level competition for several years, he continues to train as much as possible and passionately follows the evolution of the sport and art-form of flatland BMX.

His judging credentials include acting as the pro-flatland judge for the 2001 European X-Games in Barcelona, serving as judge for all classes for over a decade with the Canadian Freestyle Organization (CFO) in Toronto, as well as developing one of the most balanced and careful judging systems ever produced in collaboration with Chase Gouin.
