French up-and-comer Anthony Perrin exploded onto the competitive BMX scene when he befriended top French rider Georgy Doremus and competed in the FISE Xperience series. He soon won his first amateur contest, and he cemented his burgeoning reputation with a series of epic videos, many featuring his trademark ‘nose wheelies’. His mother continues to be a great support to him in his career, and she still accompanies him to international Street events including Simple Session in Tallinn, Estonia. At the age of just 19, there is no doubt that Anthony is already one of the most talented, young riders on the BMX Street scene, and he has already picked up sponsorship deals with Vans, éclat BMX and Federal Bikes. Known as "Petit Chase" because of his supposedly strong resemblance to US BMX star Chase Hawk, Anthony was born in Tarare near Lyon in 1994. His father bought him his first BMX bike when he was 12, and after visiting his local skatepark, he he soon caught the BMX bug. Despite his recent success, he still calls Tarare home, and still spends time at the same park or chilling out with old friends. Skilled, creative and able to perform drops that other riders would surely steer away from, Anthony’s style is super-technical, influenced by riders such as Corey Martinez, Garrett Reynolds, JJ Palmere and Bruno Hoffmann. Although primarily a street rider, he loves to ride Park, and says he prefers rails to ledges, and no brakes to brakes.
