Where do you live Antoine and how is the BMX scene where you are?
I live in Aix en Provence in the south of France. Its a small city and the centre really isn't that good for riding It's best to go to Marseille, it’s 15 minutes away theres ALL the spots and the beach!
The BMX scene over here is pretty big and also skateparks are popping up everywhere witch helps very much.
I'm a part of the NOFATECREW from Marseille, we have already put out a couple mixtapes along with Valentin Cotot, Mathieu Paillon, Jaouad West, the Dupoux brothers and others. There are also crews who are coming up too, with who we also ride like the WKND.
How long have you been riding already and what is your motivation behind it?
I started riding on and off from around 6 years old and only started riding seriously 3 years ago. My motivation is to overcome my fear and the challenges we set ourselves with my friends, and also I like to try to reach perfection when learning tricks.
How have the Covid restrictions affected your riding last year and this year?
For me it didn’t really change anything - I tried to go outside and ride as much as possible to not lose my motivation and my endurance - I just really like being outside to ride my bike!
Who is your favourite rider to watch?
I’d say Felix Prangenberg, I love his style and the tricks he does are crazy. I also admire his determination witch you can feel in all of his videos!
If you could ride any spot in the world, where would it be?
I'd love to go ride in San Diego and Los Angeles, both for the spots and the BMX history they carry.
Any plans for the rest of 2021?
I would very much like to put out a video for Wethepeople, Eclat and also continue our ongoing projects with the NOFATECREW. I would also like to travel all around Europe with my bike.
