About this rider

Maikel Melero hails from Spain and is one of the newest FMX talents on the scene. He was only 10 years old when he started to ride motorcycles, and from an early age he participated in the Spanish Motocross Championships, where he earned a well-deserved third place in the 85cc category.

When Maikel was 17 he got his first taste of Freestyle FMX when fellow Spanish rider Dany Torres offered him the chance to try out his FMX compound. It was the start of an obsession for Melero who quickly adapted to the sport and made it his own, culminating in team and personal glory in 2014, taking out the NIGHT of the JUMPs World Championship and the FIM Freestyle MX of Nations with team Spain.

After winning everything in his sights in 2014, the young bull from Cotillas improved on his 2014 season finishing on top of the podium 5 times on his way to back to back World Championships. With the best flair in the business and arguably the largest trick repertoire in the line up, Maikel is looking not only to win, but to create a dynasty.
