Florian Chapon

I have always lived in the small town of Cassis, by the sea. In my family, cycling is passed on from generation to generation, I have been cycling around my house since I was very young, but I started riding more seriously from the age of 12 when my uncle and father gave me my first real XC bike. Since I was a child I have been trying to film my bike sessions with my friends. My first onboard camera set-up was a DIY to mount my parents' digital camera on the fork of my 20" decathlon bike! Since then I have gradually evolved towards enduro, and more recently slopestyle, to which I dedicate myself fully alongside my engineering studies. I always filmed my progress on my bike with my friends, then I started editing and posting them when I had my first GoPro.

I have always competed, but for fun rather than competition, because I find it the most interesting thing about our sport. Nevertheless, I like to surpass myself, and give myself 100% to beat my time record on my favorite track, or learn new tricks.

My main passion, in addition to cycling and photo/video, is mechanics and DIY, which is why I maintain and repair my bicycles and those of my entourage by myself. I am also always thinking and creating new accessories to mount my gopro everywhere on me or my bike. On the one hand, it allows me to save a lot of money, but also to gain knowledge in mechanics, which helped me a lot for my engineering studies.
