PAULTJE PILS. We've almost taken on Paul Thoelen as a Dutchman. He's here way too often to be considered 100% German. In fact, when he's home, he lives half an hour from the border and boy-o-boy we would love for him to join the Dutch family. But BMX family is close enough to continue with the good times with Paul, his brother Max and his parents. Paul is that rider that goes higher than 95% of the riders at the contest and makes everything look good. A pleasure to watch. Last call for alcohol? Don't forget to mention that to Paultje Pils.
Last package you received from a sponsor? Paul Thoelen: 3 days ago. Love you Vans!
Last time you went to the gym? Paul Thoelen: I actually had a full week of training last week haha. Usually I’m not really into gyms.
Last advice you got from a good friend? Paul Thoelen: To go to bed after falling asleep at the bonfire.
Last contest you entered? Paul Thoelen: Red Bull Uncontained in November last year.
Club ZwölfZehn was turned into a BMX party when Freedom BMX called for their annual BMX Award show. Big winner of the night was Paul Thoelen who grabbed the video of the year award, Best German Dirt rider of the year and also the Best Park rider award. Mellowpark once again walked away with the Best Park of the year Pokal and Felix Prangenberg de-throned Bruno Hoffmann in the Street rider of the year. The Best flatlander cup was for Kevin Nikulski and best Brand was for wethepeople. The Freedom BMX Best International rider award went to Devon Smillie who was not present in Stuttgart to dance the night away but will receive his award when he gets to Estonia next week.
