Joris Daudet is a bad ass french rider. When I first saw him ride I thought he had a classic style – finesse like a new school Thomas Allier and power like an old school 4x USA BMX #1 Pro Pete Loncarevich. Joris simply doesn’t look like he is trying, he is very efficient and smooth. Back in 2015 he went into the USA BMX Grands in Oklahoma in a virtual 3 way tie with Sam Willoughby and Connor Fields for the number one pro title. Joris needed to win the race to claim the title. Instead, he dominated winning all three mains impressively. It was an awesome performance that I could appreciate and I felt like it needed the timeless credit and recognition that it deserved.
