Cannondale Factory Racing athlete Anton Cooper is an absolute natural. At the age of 21, he already has two U23 XCO World Championships under his belt and has his sights set even higher for the 2016 season. Anton found his love for racing at an early age after his father saw his potential to be a great mountain biker and got him involved in local mountain bike races. Calling North Canterbury, New Zealand home is certainly an advantage for sharpening skills in the offseason in preparation for his world tour first full season in the Elite category.
Join us for episode 6 of #WHATSBEHIND where we get up-close and personal with the reigning champ at home and learn how he became one of the most promising XC racers on the world stage.
