Anthony Messere has in just a few short years taken the world of Freestyle MTB by storm. Stepping it up in 2011, at just 15 years of age, Anthony shocked the world when he toppled the world's best and podiumed at Kokanee Crankworx in Whistler Canada. Since then he hasn't let up for a moment, and could now be considered a favorite at just about any FMB event in the world!
Anthony resides in Surrey BC, Canada, and still calls Whistler his favorite place to put the rubber down, although his favorite event is the Bearclaw Invitational. That doesn't surprise us much given Messere's passion for boosting to new heights. Nobody has ever called Darren's courses too small. We asked Anthony what his best memory on a bike was, and if you saw it...you'll agree..."the giant hip at Crankworx Super Finals 2011"...damn straight.
Spank Industries supports Messere with the strongest weight optimized rims on the planet, and as one of his newest sponsors, joins a very elite group, made up of Morpheus Cycles, Redbull, Fox Clothing, SRAM, Maxxis, Smith, Chromag, and Leatte. Anthony credits his sponsor Morpheus, and teamate Mitch Chubey as playing a huge role in shaping his Slope Career, as well as sponsor Redbull for opening a lot of new doors.
Goals? How about winning Redbull Rampage one day, and top 3 to World Champ over the next two seasons...if anyone can pull it off, its the Phenom! And this after moving from BMX to MTB just a few seasons ago. Anthony's now busy building his confidence and bag of tricks on different types of bikes and terrain. Now that he's comfortable tricking dj, slope, and dh bikes...its just a matter of time!
From Anthony, "Don't count me out, till you let me in!"
