We are proud that our rider youngest rider JB is now riding for S&M bikes through 4DOWN (European distributor), it's well deserved and we're really happy for him ! In order to highlight this new we asked to him some questions, illustrated by some photos of his bike we shot during the RBP jam (action photo by Max Rabiller and other by Simon Cassol).
Could you summarize in some words this offer from S&M bikes ? How does it happen ?
I met Alex Valentino during the Apache trip in Bordeaux in 2019, when he filmed some guys of the French connexion for the web videos serie "La belle endormie ". Alex is in charge of distributing S&M brand in France, he was looking for a rider from the area to represent the brand. Alex got in touch with me through Simon Cassol from Manual bmx shop, voilà voilà. During winter, Simon called me and asked if I was sit down as he had something to tell me, obviously I didn't expect that, because French riders are far from the BMX industry and the whole business of it, without to mention an American brand, it's not everyday that an offer like that occurs.
What did you feel and what did you think when you hear about the offer ? Proud to represent this legendary brand ?
To represent this famous brand is gratifying, I think, now people look at me like a rider who is sponsored by a famous brand, I have a fresh new bike with quality parts, I'm so pleased ! As a result me and Simon are motivated to film some clips and make a good video, we hope ! ;-)
