Hi! (: I'm Trista Hartmann

I'm from South Bend, Indiana but no, I'm not an Irish fan haha.
I actually started riding just a few months ago. Probably late July 2012. It all started thanks to me hanging out with all of my BMX friends more over the summer at the Kitchen Skatepark. I felt drawn to the park, the people, and rush I got from riding so I went to a local bike shop and bought my first BMX bike.

Toronto will definitely be my first competition. I am still at a really early stage of riding but I feel like going and riding will not only help me meet other awesome BMX chicks but help me grow as a rider.
I'm looking forward to meeting both male and female riders from all over and having a great time and memorable experience in Canada.

Why do you ride flatland?

Mainly because the truth is something I like very much, it became my lifestyle.  For me it is more than a desire to show that woman can do this sport.  I'm the first girl to ride flatland in my country, and the world of BMX changed my life.  Today I love flatland and with the help of my friends always want to keep progressing in this beautiful sport.

My first competition in which I was the only female
