Mönchengladbach Rheydt Tower Festival - West German Championship
The tower festival on the Rheydt marketplace has been taking place since 1977 - without a doubt an event with tradition! The skate scene in Mönchengladbach is also anchored so strongly that the common denominator is bigger than you might think at first glance!
Already in 2018, the locals brought skateboarding to the family festival, as they were still in a small format. But with so much appeal that in 2019 the West German Championship was able to grow a few sizes - a success that requires repetition in 2020!
As part of the championship, there is also a special competition in which the skaters have to overcome a certain number of RAVENOL oil barrels (sometimes up to seven barrels): the so-called RAVENOL BARREL JUMP.
