Hello! My name is Gurvan Le Bloc’h I’m 18 and a BMX FLATLAND PRO rider!
I live in France on the west coast, I practice BMX for 4 years and I travel around Europe for contest, jam, meeting people and riding my bike with my friends but soon I would like to travel around the world.
I search to accomplish some competitions and travel a lot to meet people, have good sessions with my bmx and friends, to see awesome landscapes and just enjoy the life with whatever I’m doing!
Firstly the flatland is the most difficult part of bmx because this one requires obstinacy, the control of yourself, balance and agility to do the tricks!
Secondly the flatland is not well known to the people and is difficult to make this one known.
Finally the level in the competitions is very high and it is hard to get a place when you start the professional category.
When you pull a trick it is the best satisfaction than you can have and when you see the old movies of you, see your progression, I love it.
The support of these friends, family, clapping when you succeed a combo in a contest! It really is fabulous.
I practice my passion in a skatepark, tennis court, in my garden because I have a spot to practice bmx and anywhere as long as it is flat and smooth.
For the winter with my friends we have an indoor spot!
In my training the most important thing is motivation, persevering and just like what you do!
When I battle in a competition the thing that makes me nervous is the fear of any miss of my combos but I tell myself I can do cycling, I am like in training, it’s going to do it! He who risks nothing has nothing hahaha!
My biggest fan is Fabien Stephan because I’m discovering the bmx flatland with him and taught me my first tricks! I want to give a very big thanks to this man.
When I started bmx I was in the novice class and him in the pro class, now I’m in the pro class with him haha! He is a very talented rider and a very good friend!
The best advice that was given to me is never lose what you want, fight to have what you want!
My future plan is many travels (Japan, Spain, Germany, Canada and more…) and competition and battle in the world championship! Continue to enjoy myself on my bike and just have good time with my friends!
During the hike our instructors will help you have a beautiful progress and make you run on magnificent paths between mountain and ocean, many meadows of the Rhune Mountain where you can estimate the Basque nature with views on the Pyrenean foothills, St Jean de Luz’s bay and all the Basque coast.
The first part of hike takes place on St Pée’s heights between savage landscapes and green forest of eucalyptus and oaks and you will evolve on easy tracks where you will quickly assimilate the piloting of quads.
We shall come down again in the valley and our target will be the crests overhanging the villages of Sare and Ascain, “here the landscapes are rather lunar, wild horses and vultures took up residence there “; 360 degrees views on the coast and lands are waiting for you!!!
Concerning sensation, our mountains allow you to have fun driving the quads, rises, descents, paths of crests, under wood and many other surprises wait for you …
The ride quad, one moment of sharing and feelings!!!
Gone up at high altitude, technical passages for those who wish it, approximately 35 km, guaranteed, single or two-seater, accessible sensations to all.
Our hike 3 hours revisited, with in extra a break at the heart of the village of Espelette, the discovery of the hot Pepper culture, a tasting of local products will wait for you to the Lorretik shop.
