Francois Debroux, Lifelong BMX rider originally from Brussels, Belgium and now living in Vancouver, BC started the Hang 5 Podcast a year ago and had this to say:
“The original concept was to interview French and Belgian (because of my background) older riders/shop owners/promoters/media and industry heads, etc.
The podcast is in French and I cover all aspects of BMX: Racing, ramp riding, street, park and of course flatland.
While it all started with trying to preserve the history through interviews and stories from the pioneers in the french speaking countries, I don’t want to limit myself to just the old school or french riders. All eras of BMX are great.
I just released episode 16th with Raphael Chiquet.
Future plans include starting to interview members of the wider European scene in English this time.
The podcast is available at https://hang5podcast.buzzsprout.com but also on Spotify, Deezer, Apple podcasts, Google podcasts and others.
There is an instagram account that host little known photos from the interviewees: @hang5podcast
