My name is George Kikos and I live in Athens, Greece. I spend my days practicing on BMX Flatland category which is basically ground tricks. I started at a very young age and got stuck with it as I was watching older riders practicing in various open squares around the city.
Having about 18 years of being a professional BMX Flatland rider, I have managed to reach the goals I always wanted. I now ride every day for 4 to 5 hours. For me, this is my life style and so much more. I have also participated in many contests around Europe! This is my one and true passion and while I ride around with my BMX, I feel alive – FLAΤLΑΝD for life!!
A good position in a big contest
That there are no closed parks or spots where I can practice. Other than that, injuries are part of the game
I practice my skills 25km away from home. I go there every day as it is the only place I can do it right!
My family and friends as well as many other people I think cause what they see is very different than what they’re used to see on a BMX.
Contests and a lot of good videos.

The Orlias gorge is located in Dion Pieria, on the northern northeastern slopes of Olympus and is divided into three parts.
We leave the cars in the small chapel of Saints Constantine and Helen located at the 4th km of the forest road Dion – Koromilia. This is the starting point of the trail that leads up to the shelter Koromilia. We can leave the trail in several points and admire the beautiful waterfalls from far away.
Crossing the trail and after hiking for 50 minutes alongside the stream bank through impressive vegetation, we reach the entrance of the gorge at an altitude of 550m, where the section Orlias I ends.
Section II is of medium difficulty level and one of the most beautiful and entertaining at the same time in Greece with downhill duration 5.30 – 6.00 hours. Children aged 12 and over can participate in this section.
Here we find seven beautiful consecutive rappels from 8m to 30m, impressive water slides and diving from a height into the vathres (small lakes) with crystal clear waters! The breathtaking scenery and adrenaline blast will make your activity truly memorable!
We enter the trail again at an altitude of 320m (Altitude difference 230m) and after 15 minutes hiking we are back in our cars.
The best time to visit is from May to October.
