Hi, my name is Joris Daudet. My discipline is BMX race. I was born on 12 March 1991 in Saintes, France. My special talent is an eye for picking the right gates.


To hold the title of French, European and world number one all at the same time is a pretty amazing achievement in BMX racing. However, Joris Daudet takes it all in his stride.

Hailing from the South-West of France, Daudet has been making a huge impression on the BMX world stage ever since he landed 12 out of 12 wins on the European tour in 2011. His winning streak saw him also claim the World Championship victory in Copenhagen, to the surprise of spectators.

The first ever French rider to win the World Championship moved to California to train and get his confidence back after a disappointing result at the London 2012 Olympics. The move paid off, as he finished second in the Time Trial at the 2013 World Championships, and has gone back to his country to win the BMX Indoor in Saint-Etienne.

After strong results again in 2014 and 2015, Daudet now has his eyes firmly set on the 2016 Rio Olympics.
