EMIL JOHANSSON

BIO

"Born and raised in Trollhättan, Sweden. I bought my first bike with some saved up money, plus support from my parents when I was 6 years old, shortly after you would see me cruising around town on the back wheel and going to the local dirt jumps. Growing up I did a bunch of different sports but I have always had an interest for bikes, but it took me a couple of years to fully understand that bikes were my main passion. I got immersed in it and never looked back. Freeriding was not really the path people were looking at, honestly, it was barely even a path. When I got into riding only a handful of guys from Sweden competed at a professional level so it seemed like a long shot to everyone, but for me and my passion. The passion to progress beyond the local dirt jumps I did not share with many from my hometown, so as a kid I had to learn to take care of myself and stand on my own two feet. When I was 11 years old I started taking the bus by myself to go ride with likeminded people at a skatepark an hour away from my parents. Riding bikes has raised me into the person I am today and without it I do not know where I would have ended up, it gives me the freedom to be creative and to have the opportunity to set my own goals and limits."
