► From Two to Four Wheels – Anthony ROCCI
Lyon is surely the birthplace of the newschool MTB scene in France. For 10 years it has been a real melting pot of the most talented riders in France and perhaps even the world. You can’t really explain the ambiance, the riding spots and the city, it’s too cool!
Anthony Rocci is part of this first wave of versatile riders and now takes on the role of an official shaper for all rounds of the FISE. After competing in regional downhill races he realised he could also have as much fun on a hardtail as a DH bike. He’s also equally as comfortable on two wheels as four.
Between two drift races, we spent four days with him this summer so he could show us his Lyonnais woods. Creative and graceful particularly when airborne, Anthony’s tricks were initiated by Louis Reboul and PEF several years ago and now he makes them his own.
