Antoine Meo, born August 29, 1984 in Digne, France came to the KTM Enduro Factory Racing team at the start of the 2012 season with a distinguished list of achievements including two world titles – E1 and E2 – and several national French titles. The talented French rider went on be the stand out E1 rider in 2012 and delivered the title to his new team.
Meo's run of success continued in 2013 and he was again the runaway winner in E1. He won 12 of 14 rounds, including one riding the KTM 125 EXC and sealed the title three rounds before the end of the season.
The 2014 season saw Antoine make an impressive start in the E2 class and after six GPs he had won four and was second in the other two riding the KTM 350 EXC-F. Then a hand injury during the Finnish GP prematurely ended his season. Now he has returned to full fitness, he is expected to be a title candidate in 2015.
Meo came up through the ranks of Motocross and Supercross, where he did well at European and French national level but he has found his form and his sport in the classic Enduro disciplines. Meo was also part of the winning French ISDE team in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013.Antoine's facebook
