One of the newest members of the Spank Industries International Pro Team, dirt/slope specialist Robin Gunnarsson, is quickly making his mark on the scene. Robin first came into the limelight in 2010 in Sweden, (one of the world's hotspots for new FR talent), when he podiumed at Dusted and Skrokk'n'roll over some steep competition, at just 17 years old! Since then he's had a series of incredible results, culminating in a silver at the iXS Dirtmasters in 2011.
In 2012 Gunnarsson graduated up from the AMA class in the FMB, and Spank Industries is stoked to support his move! Obvioulsy Robin's turning a few heads in the industry, as he was recently picked up by Monster Energy too.
Robin hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, where he still says the local jumps are his favorite place to ride, but if you ask him about the best place to compete, no doubt Dirtmasters will be at the top of his list. When he's not throwing barspin-backflips, Robin likes a little downtime chilling to HipHop and Hardstyle with friends. Looks like there won't be much time for that this year...Robin has a full schedule of travel, comps, and filming edits and movies. Life could be worse.
This year Robin rides for Spank Bikes, Monster Energy, Rite.se, and Earphones.se.
