Emil Johansson is a 17 year old Swedish rider who´s whole life evolves around bikes. Emil started to ride bikes at the age of 8 and in his own words, has not regretted a minute spent on this sport.
One year ago he started going to a bike gymnasium in Falun, which provides him with a special program, giving him the opportunity to ride and practice every day during school time.
His hard work and dedication has paid off, since as 2016 was Emils first year at FMB World Tour, and also his first year competing outside of Sweden, he managed to finish in top five on the podiums of the four biggest slopestyle competitions of the season: 4th at Red Bull Joyride, 3rd at Colorado Freeride Festival, 5th at Swatch Primeline, 5th at 26TRIX.
After the 2016 season, Emil finished 7th place in the FMB Diamond Series and is currently 5th place in the FMB overall ranking. This means that he is guaranteed a spot for the 2017 Diamond Series.
