Jeanjean’s love affair
Jeanjean’s love affair with BMX began at FISE Montpellier, aged 10.
From that day on his line through life’s rhythm section was set – he was going to be a pro BMXer: “I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life,” says Jeanjean. “For me it was a goal and also a clear choice.”
Jeanjean now joins TSG’s star-studded pro team: “We are so pleased to welcome Anthony Jeanjean into the Ride TSG family,” says CEO Ruedi Herger. “Not only is he an outstandingly skilful rider and competitor but he is also an incredible role model for BMX riders, present and future.”
Anthony’s BMX career is in full swing
Jeanjean burgeoning stash of trophies includes the first ever European freestyle BMX Championship crown; French BMX freestyle gold; and in 2019, after coming back from serious injury, his career came full circle with a win at the FISE Montpellier. “It was a very intense moment for me,” says Jeanjean. “Because I discovered BMX freestyle at FISE de Montpellier 10 years ago and my first competition was at FISE de Montpellier.”
All set for the Olympics
This year, he will lead the French BMX team, including fellow riders from his home stomping ground of BMX Park Sérignan, to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, to battle with the world’s best riders for a gold medal. “It is a great pride for me to have succeeded in qualifying France for the first Olympic Games in BMX Freestyle Park,” say Jeanjean. “And a great pride for me to represent my country in this competition.”
TSG are honoured to sponsor Jeanjean and keep him safe on his two-wheeled journey with their first class protective kit. “If anyone has the grit, skill and determination to win a medal at the Olympics it is Jeanjean,” says Ruedi Herger. “We wish him the best of luck.”
