Here’s what to expect…
The event is actually the Toronto International Bicycle Show – an annual tradeshow in a huge convention hall with tons of exhibitors. There are several live events housed inside. There’s a trials thing, a park contest with guys like Drew Bezanson, and the flatland contest which is put on by The Canadian Freestyle Organization. The name of the flatland contest is Flatland Unlimited 9. When you get to the exhibition hall, just follow the myriad signs for the bike show. When you get to the ticket counter, tell them you’re there for the flatland BMX contest and they’ll direct you around the building to a rear entrance. When you get to that rear entrance you’ll see the registration desk. Bring cash. They usually take both Canadian and US currency. If you get lost or uncertain at any time just walk up to a door and ask one of the security guards.  This is your chance to be helped by a security guard so be psyched on that. Once you’re in just follow the directions from the guys at the registration desk. The contest area is on the perimeter of the inside. You’ll see some bleachers, a bunch of flatlanders, some pop tents with logos and a painted concrete floor that was mopped with soda pop.

Here’s a Google Map. Use it to get directions…
