The BMX-rider Valentin Moder explores the city of Sarajevo and it’s history. He rides the most breathtaking wreckages and gets to know moving time testifies.

After a bit of last-minute shopping, he was abandoned together with his fellow BMXer Corey Bohan of Australia in the Hagebaumarkt store in Mondsee, Austria.

"It has been quite a challenging year for me, most of my years have been an athlete focus" said the 28-year-old, who married her longtime partner Barry Nobles in the USA last month. 2018 has been a human focus; life and health have taken priority.
