Fantastic News from Team FORMEX! We are so proud to present France’s Freeride Pro Mountain Biker, Simon Pagès, as our newest FORMEX Swiss Watches Ambassador. Pagès and FORMEX share the same passion for Speed, Precision and Adrenaline. Just like us, Simon relies on perfection, performance und a unique style.
It was with 10 years when Simon Pagès and his dad went cross-country with their bikes. Simon realized pretty soon that it’s Freestyle Mountainbiking what he’s really interested in. After a while, he asked his grandfather if he could build a training ground in his backyard. That was the start of the Pagès Trail – and together with his buddies, the “French Connection” (which is by the way one of the strongest nations at the FMB World Tour), he continues to enlarge and improve the park. After finishing up school, Pagès decided to focus entirely on his passion und since then, practices on a daily basis new tricks and higher jumps.
With his 20 years, Pagès already knows that the fears he doesn’t face become his limits. On the question whether he ever gets shaky on his pins, he responses that he just feels really good when he’s on his bike, and he doesn’t really think about anything else. If he’d ever bother, he listens to some music and off he goes. Simon is riding Slopestyle on the FMB World Tour and already achieved some great podium finishes in the past season. However, his career is at the beginning and he’s just about to take off for the top rankings. FORMEX supports Simon along the way, because in mountainbiking and in watchmaking, talent means nothing without rigour and precision.
Welcome, Simon Pagès, at Team FORMEX, and best success at the first big event in 2017, the Crankworx at Rotorua in New Zealand. LIVE stream on April 2nd at 1.30AM CEST at redbulltv.
