Matthias Dandois, VIP treatment

Matthias Dandois entered 2012 as a pro flatlander, and will exit the year as one of the most well-rounded flatland riders quickly expanding his repertoire into the realm of technical street riding. Mixing technical flatland moves into street lines, Dandois spent a good portion of 2012 documenting his newfound hybrid of street riding and flatland for videos from Red Bull. And earlier this month, Dandois made a big move to the Haro BMX team. Though he doesn't limit himself to just flatland anymore, he is the first flatland rider to rep Haro in close to a decade. And for all that and more, we're giving him the VIP treatment in 2012.
