Catching Up With Matti Hemmings

With the UK Flatland Championships taking place next weekend at the Wheels and Finns Festival in Joss Bay, Kent it seemed like the perfect time to drop this.

During BMX Cologne, I caught up with UK Flatland Championship organiser and Professional flatland rider Matti Hemmings to talk about the up and coming Wheels and Finns event on the 9/10th September. As well as that we talk about his daily schedule, holding the world record for a couple of flatland moves, living in Portishead, never practising a routine for contests and the BMX Cologne event. Hope you enjoy this one, leave us a comment and let us know what you think.

** The wind was blowing once again, so turn this one up.

Catching Up with Dave Nourie

At the 2017 BMX Cologne contest I caught up with 80’s Haro Flatland BMX legend Dave Nourie. We talk about his ordeal of getting to Cologne, his new Haro ride, stories from the 80’s Haro tours, his heartfelt responsibility to keep the old school alive in a new school era at contests, and a whole lot more. I even learnt that Dave did not invent the stubble duck which I thought was the case for years, this is a good one. Don’t miss it!

Catching Up with Sebastian Grubinger

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!
