About Marin

Born on the August 9th 1995, Marin enjoyed his childhood in Varaždinske Toplice, playing football. He was never seen without a ball. As a child he was full of energy which we still can see today. At the age of 8, he moved with his family to Varaždin.

After a while he started to fall in love with bikes, so he got his first MTB. Slowly he discovered extreme sports, and after a lot of persuasion towards his mother, his first BMX was there. He started to do some small tricks on Drava dirt track and old Skate ramp in Varaždin.

After a couple of years, Varaždin got a new skate park and his development started to grow exponentially. After a while, Varaždin’s skate park just couldn’t satisfy his appetites.

Be yourself and ride 
for yourself

His skills were noted and he started to attract sponsors. Mislav Streicher (Zion Bike) was the first one who spotted his talent. He enables development for Marin and he gave him a bmx and parts for his bike. Next was a sponsorship from Warehouse, firstly with clothes and shoes and later with constant access to their indoor skatepark “Šupica”. After a few successful videos and competitions, he got a “DNA portal” reward for best young bmx rider in Croatia for year 2011.

In 2012 he recieves a support from Red Bull in sight of cans and financial support for participation in competitions. He confirmed his talent in 2012. by becoming the best croatian bmx rider by “DNA portal”.

In 2014 he became part of the Red Bull family. Rest is history in making.
