A new year has started and soon enough an invitation arrived from the guys from Asphalt Distribution in France for another edition of the now famous Circle Cow. Carhartt got hooked as the main sponsor so the Carhartt Circle Cow 2005 tournament was born. Held on the weekend of 12 & 13 Februari in Servon, a town close to Paris in the same hall as all the previous years.
We went down there on Saturday morning with two cars packing the best of the best of the Dutch flatland scene: James Alberto, Sytse Winkel and Dutch Destroyer Bram Verhallen (FLATtv rider). Plus me, mr. FLATtv and my wife Francis.
After a 5-hour ride through some pretty nasty weather we arrived at the scene of the crime and met up with some of our friends from all over Europe: Czech riders with Mirek Hanzl, London Ripper (and FLATtv rough rider) Jason Forde, James Smith & Gareth Hawkins, Stuttgart Boyz Flo & Ass and Sven Steinbach from Karlsruhe. Of course also all our French friends like Alex, Jimmy, Yannick, Stephanie, Arnaud, Cedric Decosse and all the others. Viki Gomez was there, he and Alex were riding the new prototype KGB frames.
We were welcomed by organisers Pascal and Ismael, they made sure we didn't miss out on anything.
