Matthias Dandois is our newest Proteam family member and unstoppable BMX flatland and street ninja. Born in Épinay-sur-Orge, Paris region (France), Matthias is the living proof that talent, vision, and originality can lead the way to a remarkable career.
By the age of 12, BMX became an extension of himself, a way to push his limits and express his creativity. Matthias began riding street, using city elements, such as stairs, curbs, handrails, etc. Later, at a local skate park, he discovered flatland: where the magic happens solely on the ground, without the need for any obstacles. Flatland is more than a style, it’s a way of seeing time and space; like a dance, where the imagination flows into movement and inspires your next turn. It was a longshot, but a good one, shaping his upcoming years, turning him into one of the most progressive and inspiring riders of his generation.
In 2008, his hard work and dedication led to his first title as World Champion of BMX Flatland. Today, his shelf holds eight World Champion titles, several nominations & awards, such as the Rider of the year in the NORA CUP, he made his debut in films and TV shows and was considered one of the fifty most influential people in the world of action sports, according to ESPN classification (2013).
Apart from his insane riding skills, he’s also a passionate and brilliant content creator and photography fan – check out his INSTAGRAM page where he explores the world with his analog camera. You can find his YouTube video channel HERE. With his sense of style and big and bold personality, we cannot wait to see what’s coming next.
