Paulin began his obsession with two wheels racing BMX beginning at the age of six; winning multiple world championships by the age of 10 years old. At the age of 13 he would find his true calling after trading out pedals for a motor. So began his run into motocross.

Gautier would go on to make his debut at only 17 in the MX2 class of MXGP. Even with the little experience, he was constantly a podium threat and battling for wins in his first year.

As his career progressed he would build on to his resume capturing 5 MX2 world champtionships before moving up to big bikes in 2012. After moving up Gautier would take the championship in his first year and follow up that victory in 2013 with another commanding champtionship in 2014 MX1 class.

Fast forward to 2017 and Paulin is still hard on the gas, moving his competition out of the way and racing with the intensity that makes him a part of our Syndicate. We are pumped to have him on board the Shift team!
