 Ohhh i am waiting to get home to watch this with a couple of cold Beers....I am unashamed that this guy is my sporting hero of all time and i am old enough that i have seen many champions of many different sports in many different era's and when asked who my idols are I say My Dad and Fab.
A true sporting legend isnt the guy/girl who wins everything in there chosen sport its the person who not only excels at sport but it is someone is a Gentleman,is humble and has time for the youth of there sport and just has a true love for it and its culture....f*ck,even my Goldfish is named Fab lol.

 Fabien. We are lucky to have you as an athlete and public presence in mtb.

What do you think about doing an in depth how-to of mtb techniques for video and book format? Bringing in some of the best pros for their particular strong points, using your scientific eye, etc. The short pieces have been great, but what about something for all the strong riders who are looking to STUDY in order to unlock the secrets of the very best of mtb athletes? 10 - 20 hours of video ? voice-over explainations of sections done right and wrong and what the difference looks like, etc.

Just my hope...Thanks for your time.

LOVED your lines in Morocco...Please be careful, we love you.

 vraiment dommage qu'il n'y ait pas de sous-titre en Français!!!! Du coup je n'ai regardé jusqu'à ce que Vouilloz parle.

Mon Anglais est naze, dommage de ne pas penser aux Français qui veulent suivre l'actu de leurs pilotes et qui n'ont pas un niveau en anglais suffisant pour suivre!

 Vous savez que vous vous plaignez d'un manque de sous-titres pour une vidéo faite par des Anglais, sur un site canadien ?
Vous vous attendiez à quoi ?
