Nondas is a professional freestyle motocross rider since 2006. He has competed along with some of the best riders in the world like Andre Villa and is the first Greek rider to do the Backflip. He is also into custom builds of motorcycles rebuilding body and engine, a motocross trainer and mechanic on Turkish Husqvarna team.
As I am already a 30 year old professional athlete, I am lucky enough to have accomplished more than what I even had in mind by performing a back flip in an official gap.
My greatest achievement is that with the help of freestyle motocross, I have traveled around the world and managed to turn my hobby into my profession.
The first difficulty is mainly financial since FMX is an expensive sport plus the cost of transferring your bike in places you should be since you cannot drive around with it. The second difficulty is that in Greece, there aren’t many professional riders and it’s hard to organize something big cause you’re on your own.
When I ride my bike, what matters for me the most is the sense of freedom I get and the fact that I experience this very moment so intense that is like nothing else in the world matters
I was lucky enough to have some very good friends who gave me an open field in Livadia, about 100km away from Athens. This is where I have set up my personal motocross piste and practice.
I try to redo the same tricks I perform in shows but even more impressive just for me to enjoy and of course I always try to learn new ones.
I have seen people from all ages cheering up for me but it doesn’t matter to me who the biggest fan is as long as I make people smile with what I do.
You have to start thinking that tomorrow is the day that you’ll make it!
My future plans include the making of 2 new videos in 2016 and to practice on some new tricks that look scary to me for now.
