Anthony Poulson

I'm a 20-year-old kid from Quebec, Canada. I've been riding bikes since age 10. I usually ride in Bromont, which is also one of my favourite places to be during the summer. I started racing when I was 15 and have never stopped. I just love pushing myself and I love the feeling of crossing the finish line after a good run. I got the opportunity to ride with Kona in 2015 which made racing a more serious priority for me and now that I’m part of the mechanic/support team I'm giving it the same high level of dedication that I did when I was racing.

RIDING WITH KONA SINCE

2015

KONAS IN YOUR QUIVER

Operator 27.5 and a Process 153 CR/DL
WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE?

I'm from Montreal, and I still live there

DO YOUR BIKES REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL SETUP TRICKS TO MAKE THEM “JUST RIGHT”?

Not at all, I literally ride my bike the way it is.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SEASON?

I’m looking for a fun season wrenching for the team filled with lots of riding and good times with the whole crew. Excited to see what 2020 will bring to us.

WHO IS THE CYCLIST YOU MOST ADMIRE AND WHY?

Connor Fearon. He's a cool guy riding flat pedals.

WHERE WAS THE BEST PLACE YOU RODE IN 2019?

I would say Finale Ligure in Italy. The riding was pretty fun and the place is just so sick, we felt like we were on vacation.

IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ONE PERSON (DEAD OR ALIVE) WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Ken Roczen. Big fan of his.

WHAT ACTOR/ACTRESS WOULD PORTRAY YOU IN A MOVIE?

Owen Wilson. I'm always saying ''WOW.''

HOW WOULD YOUR MOTHER DESCRIBE YOU IN JUST THREE WORDS?

competitive. honest. funny.

FAVORITE MOMENT OF 2019

Definitely the Trophy of Nations in Finale Ligure. It doesn’t get much better than a race with sick riding next to the beach!

Would you rather spend money or save money?

Save money so I can spend money later on.

Would you rather drive a car or a pick-up?

Pick-up so I can bring my moto.

Would you rather watch a comedy or a horror movie?

Not sure, some days I feel like a comedy and sometimes I feel like watching a horror movie. It depends on the vibe and who I am with, I guess.

Would you rather be unable to use search engines or unable to use social media?

Social media because Google is too good not to use.

Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early?

Don’t like being late but I also hate waiting, so I would say 10 minutes late.
