Manon Valentino’s Olympic Bike Check

BeatriceJuly 13, 2021

One of my favorite things about the Olympics, aside from the obvious, is seeing all the new bike setups for this special event.  French BMX racer Manon Valentino who will be turning 31 in August, will be competing at her second Olympics next month. She is a multi-time French BMX Champion and is a strong contender on the UCI BMX Supercross circuit. Check out Manon’s 2020-1 Tokyo Olympic bike below.
