It’s always rad seeing how a rider evolves over time. In most cases it’s only a couple years at most that we ever see that evolution. However, today we got a hell of a treat courtesy of Freedom BMX because they just dropped this new Timm Wiegmann video that spans 21 years! It’s pretty awesome seeing how Timm’s riding progressed, along with how styles and his bikes have changed over the years. Needless to say, this is an awesome watch, so take a look!
“Today’s episode of #damalsdonnerstag definitely belongs in the category “Deluxe”, because Timm Wiegmann has leaked a video for us in which he reviews his best moves from 1997 to 2018. Timm was always at the forefront when it comes to exploring the possibilities of what is technically possible on a BMX bike. You could even say that he was often a few years ahead of his time, so long is the list of tricks that he has made at least in Germany, if not the world first or as one of the first. Uprail to Nollie Bar, for example, was checked off by him in 2002, three years later Nollie to Tooth Hanger and Halfcab to Nozza were tuned and in between he also perfected the right Crankarmslides – not the newfangled rumble slide on the pedal, but fuller Crank arm contact with the rail. Risch table! And as if that was not enough, the list of tricks that Timm has not yet made a Barspin is extremely manageable. In short: There are only very few drivers in this country who have gone off for so long at such a high level as the East Frisian curly-haired head with the permanent grin on his face. But we have arrived at the most important point when it comes to describe Timms driving: Even more than three decades after he first climbed on a BMX bike, he not only still goes damn steep, but also has a lot Fun, no matter how good or junk the spot may be. Ladies and gentlemen, throw your hands together for the one and only TIMM WIEGMANN!” – Freedom BMX
