Hi, my name is Panagiotis Manaras. My discipline is BMX dirt and BMX street. My friends call me Panos. I was born on 31 October 1989 in USA, but I grew up in Athens. My special talent is my big bag of tricks. My philosophy of life is stay happy. The most important person in my life is my girl. My favourite food is pizza. My favourite music is rock, hardcore and punk.


Panagiotis 'Panos' Manaras describes himself as a simple man, crazy enough to do some of the most extreme moves on his BMX...

Always remaining positive with a deep-rooted love for riding his BMX regardless of the terrain, Greek athlete Manaras has even built a mini-ramp at home, complete with a spine so he, his brother and their friends can practise round the clock. The Bogiati Land Park is fast becoming a hotspot for fellow riders.

Since reaching a standard worthy of contest invites, Panos spends much of his time travelling around Europe and has tested his mettle in Germany, Italy, Austria and Estonia, which he particularly loved.

If you want to see Panos's phenomenal style in action, you can usually find him at contests such as the Simple Session, Ghetto Games, the BMX World Championships and BMX Masters...
