Giorgos Panagopoulos officially joins The Rise, bringing this video edit with huge technical lines, on location in Greece. Giorgos is out of Athens, Greece, riding steadily for several years, and absolutely sends it in the streets. Clean bar spins and no handers while barely leaving the ground, very impressive. Giorgos is indeed, the new motivation.
Welcome to The Rise
“I first met Giorgos on a trip in Athens 3 or 4 years ago, straight away you could see the kid was special. One of those guys that makes riding look way too easy. Throwing bars like they are nothing. Since then, he’s been blowing up, constant bangers on IG and dropped some heavy videos. At such a young age he’s already doing things that are pretty unheard of in the MTB Street world and is progressing at a crazy rate. I’m looking forward to showing him around Barcelona and seeing him vibe with all the other riders in the crew! Welcome Giorgos!”Tom Kilcoyne
Straight out of Greece, Giorgos Panagopoulos has been killing it for a while now and we’re very pleased to welcome him to our family. Giorgos has a remarkable ability to perform some of the hardest tricks out there while making it look super casual and is progressing the sport in the right direction. A true pleasure to have him on board, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Giorgos.The Rise
