Samuel was born in Canada in 1987. When he was four years old, his parents introduced him to motocross. It was his first real passion, which, by the way, led him to several injuries and a lot of time spent in hospitals, but he never gave up.
After receiving his high school diploma in International Studies, he began new studies in Aeronautics. During these studies, he worked as a Coast Guard and started his next passion: climbing. In 2008 He started a Mechanical Engineer Degree at the Sherbrooke University and next year he moved to ETS to Montreal.
That time he got to know Cloé Legant – a professional fashion stylist, who encouraged him to meet with some agents and his modeling career immediately started. Now he is represented by 9 the strongest world-known agencies and he works in New York, Paris, London, Milan, Spain, Germany and many more places.
Along with his modeling career, Samuel realizes the dreams and his racing passion.
He created his own BLYSK Racing Team and went for the first race in June 2015. He became a Canadian National Champion Runner in an Amateur Superbike, and now he is one of the best racers in the PRO Class of the Canadian National Superbike Championship.
2017 was his 2nd year as a PRO Superbike. He finished that season at 4th place among 53 riders in PRO SBK and realized the impossible. He wrote the history of superbike racing, establishing a new racing track record. He is now the first ever racer to have raced in the 1:20 seconds at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. He also did two podiums that weekend, finishing with a super strong 2nd position after leading 18 of 20 laps. Watch a video from that race here
After that, 2018 is a very special year in Samuel’s racing career. He is already preparing himself very hard to be at his maximum, along with being extremely busy working as a model and brand ambassador. He also wants to do the final two races in the USA this year, and he’s planning on racing full in the USA in 2019.
