A lot of people who are into being biking are probably well familiar with the name Anton Thelander, my second guest for my new YouTube series called Pro Talks.
Anton is a great friend of mine that I grew up with riding bikes together. We traveled to our first couple of contests together and got the same first few sponsors together. Anton left the pro life a few years ago after a career filled with awesome podium finishes and FMB World Tour placements, including a 4th place at Red Bull Joyride, multiple third place finished at some big comps (FISE Montpellier, Colorado Freeride Fest) and a 6th place finish in the FMB World Tour Overall Ranking.
I wanted to sit down with him to talk about his background, how he started, why he left the pro life behind and what's been going on with him since then.
