Hi, my name is Marin Ranteš. My discipline is BMX Freestyle. My friends call me Ranteš, Ranta, Maji. I was born on 9 August 1995 in Varaždin, Croatia. My special talent is persistence. My philosophy of life is the sky is the limit.


Marin Ranteš is a BMX wonder kid from Croatia. As a child he had a shot at numerous sports, including football, basketball and handball among others, but when he got hold of his first BMX, that's when everything else went into oblivion. With no skatepark anywhere near his hometown of Varaždin, all he could do was practise his street tricks.

Ranteš soon discovered the beauty of park riding and spent every weekend at the skatepark in Zagreb. Not long after, it was obvious that this kid was here to make a mark. In 2012 Ranteš was named the best Croatian BMX rider, and ever since he's showed no signs of stopping.
