First Vans Kill The Line gets postponed until 2016 and now today we caught wind that the BMX Cologne (formerly BMX Worlds) has been cancelled as well! It sounds like the guys behind the BMX Cologne contest have simply run out of room to make the event happen and are looking for ways to find a way to do it to its fullest potential. Here’s the official word…
“After 30 years of BMX in the “Kölner Jugendpark” our motivation to organize this event has not changed. We always were driven by the passion for our sport BMX. To provide a platform where BMX is recognized as a sport and culture rather than a circus or stunt-show has always been in our focus. To show the variety that BMX has to offer has always been a main part of our concept. BMX at the Jugendpark has become a ritual to us and to thousands of BMX lovers from all over the world.
In 2015 the BMX CGN will take a break. It’s time for a concept overhaul and to give the venue the opportunity to improve its infrastructure to secure the future of BMX at this very special location. Since 2011 we have been facing higher standards and restrictions set by the City of Cologne year by year. Now it has reached a level that makes it impossible for us to proceed the way we did it in the past. We were working on solutions, but for this year’s event we are running out of time.
Nevertheless, we wish you an awesome BMX summer!! Thank you for the support over the last years & keep on riding!!
Your BMX CGN Crew
“NO WAY we will not have something going on at the Jugendpark in 2015”!
Keeping alive our tradition of the last 30 years we will organize a small get-together for the BMX family. We’re bringing back the 80´s and going back to where we started. Come and join us for another fun day of BMX in Cologne.
