 Biography 

The life of Florian Blümmel, the triple German champion, European champion and double vice world champion in artistic cycling, who was born in Speyer (Germany) , tells the story of an athlete who made it onto the world’s stages. 

​

Florian was not born as a professional artist. After leaving school he completed an apprenticeship as a carpenter and as a wholesale and foreign trade merchant.

​

But already  as a young boy at the age of 6 he was fascinated by artistic cycling  and started to practice. Later on, younger brother Felix , he still has always found time to practice for several hours every day and for learning new tricks all the time. Both were completely addicted.

​

As time passed,  Florian rose quickly to the top of his sport, qualifying for all the major competitions . Together with his brother he achieved many national and international sporting successes and awards over the years.  For 9 years he was also a member of the German national team.

​

After many years and great success in sports, 2013 he felt that his vocation was to perform on stage, where he could touch and thrill people with his act as a professional cycle artist. At the beginning together with his brother as  »Felix and Flow«.
