Ever wonder what happened to Seppl Pospischil? I’ve been curious a bunch of times when I see random clips pop up time to time from the early 2000 era. Seppl explains all below, great to see him riding and more importantly, enjoying himself…
“In fact, the last three years of riding BMX have been an emotional roller coaster. I’ve had back problems for a long time (who doesn’t have them) and a hip damage in between, which fortunately has healed. At the beginning of 2020 I destroyed my shoulder after I was finally fit again with my back. I used the break to clean up my archive and found various unpublished material (180+ clips!). In addition, I had to realize that I’m about to celebrate my 25th BMX anniversary in the BMX year 2020. So what could be more obvious than making a video out of the material?
To see the thing finished now has a “treat”. Serious flatland riding has unfortunately not been possible for a long time. But my back allowed me to cruise around in skateparks and on pumptracks. Often, against better knowledge, my ego came through, which was promptly acknowledged with lumbago. You just have to listen to your body more and switch to vacation mode if necessary. I had to learn that first. My kids and my wife are mainly responsible for the good vibes in the video. They forced me in front of the camera on our trips, even if I sometimes didn’t want to. For that a big THANK YOU and therefore also the home video character in one place or another 😉
Many thanks also go to SIBMX / Bodo Hellwig for 17 years of excellent support. And I would also like to thank Ali from Moto for the pedals and the kunstform BMX Shop for everything else.
Somehow this video comes full circle. 25 years ago I started BMX as a youngster in the skate park, now I’m back with my two boys. Let’s see what the future will bring … I’m definitely up for it!
