Nickname: The Annekinator
Hometown: Marienvelde, Netherlands
Netherlands born Anneke Beerten has been hooked on riding bikes since she started racing BMX at 4 years old. After winning two World Championship titles in BMX, she moved to racing mountain bikes in downhill and 4-Cross. She is one of the most winning female riders of all times, which includes taking the top step of the World Champion podium three times in 4-Cross. The Dutch rider is based in Southern California now, and with a winter of hard training behind her, plans to be one of the top women on the EWS circuit this year.
Anneke will be competing in the 2018 EWS Race Series for Alchemy Factory Racing with Cody Kelley.
“When I first started talking with Alchemy, my biggest question was, “What about the bike?” At this point in my career, I need a bike I can win on, and in my mind, the Arktos is that bike. It does everything so well. It is good on small chatter, a solid feel in the middle and allows me to smash almost anything. It’s hard for me to imagine a bike that is better suited for my riding style.”
