Setting new goals for the new year is something most of us do. How can you better yourself? Is my training on point or is there someone out there who can teach me more? Is my equipment on point? Should I try a longer frame? Should I switch to carbon? Today we're checking in with GT's Camille Maire from France.
Name: Camille Maire Age: 27 Hometown: Saint Etienne, France Sponsors: DN sarrians, GT BMX Factory
Did 2021 turn out the way you wanted? Camille Maire: Not really. My main goal was to get the ticket to the Olympics. I ended with the alternate place! Then, the world championship didn’t go as planned with a crash in the semi final. I also got disqualified for no reason after the semi at the European Championship. Tough season!
With the start of the new year, are you always looking to become a faster racer?

How long have you been riding a Carbon Supercross BMX bike now? Camille: I’m on a Supercross since November 2017.
Any special reason for the all black bike set-up? Camille: I really like a stealthy bike, this one is a nice compromise with the red accents. I feel like I don’t get tired of a black bike.
