During the BMX Cologne contest weekend I caught up with Heresy rider, Sebastian Grubinger to talk about the history of the BMX Cologne. We discuss his first experiences there, his riding spot back in Vienna Austria being made smaller, his opinion on contest areas being a rolling rider, the Heresy brand, his prolific posting on instagram, the importance of the video part and a whole lot more. This was a great catch up with Sebastian, good times in Cologne once again!

Sessions at the infamous LVR riding spot are a big part of what makes the BMX Cologne event so special. Malte Orth met up with Gino Stuart and Wolfgang Sauter for a session, hit play to see what went down.
