Words by MET Helmets

As XC season has begun, you might have spotted some MET Helmets in the field! It’s been a while and we are pleased to be back into one of the most challenging disciplines by teaming up with the Santa Cruz FSA Team.

We catch up with Maxime Marotte earlier this year while he was testing suspensions and gears in Liguria. Time to enjoy his style on a bike!

“Being a pro athlete is very demanding but it’s a dream which came true. I live exceptional moments. The pleasure, that’s my advice. I’m not bored as you might think. Having a new bike, a new helmet, and new sunglasses bring me the same pleasure. I don’t forget where I came from. My parents didn’t have the money to buy me the fanciest gear, it’s good to remember that. Years are passing, but passion stays. If you get bored it’s better to take a break instead of becoming really fed up. Performance comes with happiness. And biking should remain a pleasure.” Maxime Marotte

Let’s hope we have the pleasure of seeing him win a medal at the Olympics!

 Wonder when they'll update that Blur? 3 years old, I think all the other bikes in the lineup are updated more recently. Makes one wonder.

 Blur v3 might not have the 67HA that's creeping into XC, but it's hardly outdated geo. With Marotte etc now on board, v3 is suddenly a very strong WC podium contender, so maybe Santa Cruz will hold off to see how it fares before committing to redesign...not like it'll hurt retail sales either
