French kid does well, gets more sponsors, blah blah.


It all began when Tomas Lemoine, in his zebra pants, stood on the podium at Swatch Prime Line Munich. His podium result at the FMB World Tour Gold Event opened doors to the season's big FMB Diamond Events. He later finished sixth at the Bearclaw Invitational (CAN) and Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler (CAN). Back in Europe, as the youngest rider in the field, he travelled to Nuremberg for Red Bull District Ride. His performance was just shy of a top ten result amongst the world's best athletes.

Coming in strong, confident and with tones of style – Tomas has impressed the spectators, fellow riders and his new management. "We have been observing Tomas for a while now and for us, his great achievements and sportsmanship last season confirmed our beliefs. His positive attitude and professionalism fits our profile perfectly", explains rasoulution founder and managing director Tarek Rasouli.

With a very successful career about to take off on the horizon, it did not take long for brands to recognize the youngest member of the "French Connection". From now on, Tomas will be riding together with Peter Henke, Anton Thelander and Thomas Genon on the Canyon Factory Freeride Team. From 2015 you will see him throw down his epic trick combos on a Canyon Stitched and go big on a Torque DHX.

The athlete from Marseille is looking forward to the upcoming competitions: "2015 will be a great year and I am super stoked and motivated. I will try to ride all FMB Gold and Diamond Events. Thanks to rasoulution and to all my partners for their support and great start to the season."

In charge of his style and safety will be ONE/ 661 and Oakley. His grip will be provided by Continental's "Race King 2.2" and "Kaiser Project". Tomas' Canyon bikes will also be equipped with SRAM, Avid, Truvativ, RockShox, NC-17 and Novatec components.
