686 Clothing Company is pleased to announce the addition of Finland’s Janne Heiskanen to the European amateur team.
“Janne was highly recommended to us and his part in Storbis confirmed all the good things we heard about him,” says Stephane Grenet, European marketing manager for 686. “He’s a hard-worker, which is very important, and I’m looking forward to see what he has to offer. It’s a pleasure to have him join the 686 family.”
Janne grew up in a little town in Finland called Nummela, about 50 kilometers from Helsinki. His favorite terrain to ride is rails, but he also likes riding in powder stashes and in any good park. He counts Eero Ettala as one of his favorite people to shred with.
“I’m so excited to be part of the team,” says Janne, “The crew is awesome and the clothes are so cool!”
Janne’s not exactly a contest dog and his plans for the season include a heavy filming schedule for his part in the new Storbis movie as well as some guest features in Eero’s Mack Dawg segment. They already went all the way up North in Lapland to start collecting some new rail shots. Then Janne will track down freshies in Europe and North America.
In addition to 686, Janne Heiskanen is sponsored by Nitro, Electric, Level and Adio.
