 Ragot is like a little elf who kicks ass at riding bikes. And pretty cute too.

 Well said, good sir!

 I think I have a new favourite female DH racer! She is awesome

 i saw the article on the description link and came on here to right one thing : ah 69 Smile

 I've gotta be honest. Before I saw this I thought, "Oh great, another boring DH racing video..." but this video was far from that. Soo entertaining!! Great job.
  • + 46
 ....and it had BOOBS!! Hahah

 Best mtb video ever.
  • + 3
 this team seems so much fun
btw does anybody know the song at 25:50?
  • + 5
 well, that was a very good movie.

 i was kind of dissapointed that there was no crankworx segemtn..
  • + 1
 They showed a bit of crankworx

 What happens at Crankworx...
  • + 0
 they could have placed a couple shots from MSA also

 @rota92
...Stays at Crankworx
  • + 1
 Maybe they didn't include much of as Crankworx is well known already. dunno

 I think they were focusing on the World Cup circuit.

 Yh it seems so

 Yup, still smitten for Emmeline Ragot.
  • + 21
 Team of the year for me, looked so relaxed, great team chemistry having fun and nailing it with consistent results and a future super star!
  • + 15
 Credit where credits due that was a proper video. A true insight and the reference point now go any aspiring racer out there. I've been privileged enough to have these guys attend a few BDS events this year and the whole team were a pleasure to work with. Friendly, professional caring and tidy they are a credit and great ambassadors not only for Lapierre but for Mountainbiking in general.

 I like the effort, but come on... Most of the team speaks French... Should've done it in French with subtitles. Oh and boobs. Salute
  • + 9
 I've always found myself very intrigued by Emmeline, both on-bike and off-bike.
  • + 6
 And by intrigued, you mean.....
  • + 8
 Yep. I can admit it.
  • + 3
 I concur.
  • + 4
 Emmeline and Manon. Both intriguing
  • + 8
 This team is sooo fun haha, that's cool to find new guys for joking and partying like CG loris is really lucky, these crashes were nasty
  • + 2
 I've seen the Norway one several times too many, but I haven't seen the Ft. Bill one until now. Savage! He's definitely one resilient kid. Also, awesome team to follow throughout this past season. You could see the team chemistry well before this video was released.
  • + 9
 I cant understand a thing the mechanic is saying, he should have spoken in french and have subtitles hahaha!
  • + 6
 Truly inspirational! Instantly attached to the team!! Awesome video!!! Immediately went to see if those Lapierre hoodies were for sale anywhere.
  • + 6
 I watched it drunk after coming home from the local bar. Emmeline and boobs are great. I'll watch it in the morning if I spot something else.
  • + 6
 How can a crash that painful to watch, cause no real breakage?.. Loris... you are one tough dude... Smile
  • + 4
 I believe strength and protection. These Dainese armors are pretty damn good, and these guys are just a big lump of muscles on wheels ... Smile
  • + 0
 Some people have insane crisis-mode reflexes when the sh!t hits the fan. I'm in that club, but not at the level that Loris is. Glad he was not only ok after both, but he even managed to race that weekend in both cases. Tough as nails and he's only a junior!

 What is the password?
  • + 1
 I need this also as I'm watching the rest on my mobile
  • + 4
 Such a good film, not only showing the racing and the life around it but also the brotherhood and the caring for eachother, seems like an awesome team, keep it up Lapierre!
  • + 5
 This was a DH movie, not an infomercial. Nicely done, pretty touching too...
  • + 3
 Oh man, a film with Blenki in it? I love his segments in everything he's been in. And of course, I have an interview to be at, literally the exact moment the stream starts. Balls.
  • + 1
 its on for 24 hr
  • + 1
 Oh, I missed that part. i.imgur.com/TYQSyc2.png
  • + 2
 leave the ducks out of it cyrix
  • + 2
 Tis a pigeon good sir. And he's happy because he found some muthafukin bread crumbs! Got the job, and I get to watch some awesome riding by Blenki now. WHAT AN AWESOME DAY.

edit: and it's in 1080 noice.
  • + 2
 don´t pigeons have pointy peckers? well f*ck it, they both do like crumbs! cheers to getting the job! and cheers to blenki for being blenki!
  • + 1
 I wouldn't know what a pigeons pecker looked like..
  • + 3
 i wish more teams would do this kind of edit's. it gives an awesome insight about what goes on in a team. This vid also makes me miss the uci worldcup dvd. Always good fun to watch in the off season
  • + 2
 Such a great feel good video! Well done to the team for the great year and congrats to the filmers for really capturing the team spirit and behind the scenes toils and spils of racing. Finally some decent music to match the quality riding too!

The two French ladies men had an awesome year even with the aerodynamic losses caused by the action man brows- well done loic and ginger loris

Most un-PC nickname has to go to Sven Martin for correctly identifying Blinky's riding style as spastic Sam... so beautiful to see Sam really attack a track.

Emmeline is a massive inspiration to anyone who doesn't have the build of Greg or Peaty as she shows you can still be damn fast and ride hard even if you are a touch smaller than most.

Also cool to see how the behind the scenes guys put so much towards the team success. Mechanic Jack looks pretty psycho with his hat and game face on but away from the race was pretty damn funny- pretty funny to take centre and the champagne when the team took their overall prize!

So many cool one liners too... "what day is it", "er... its race day.... so I put on some arabic music" WTF Smile

 I love Emmeline Ragot!

  • + 3
 Bruni and Vergier went to the eyebrow shop and asked for "Le Action Man please"
  • + 2
 Thanks for the hard work that was a hour well spent. Surprised Blenki doesn't have a hint of a french accent at this stage.
  • + 2
 Was cautiously optimistic when I pressed play, but I am without regret 69 minutes later. That was a well-done and enjoyable movie to watch - thanks for posting it!!

 I wan't to be a team manager so bad.
  • + 2
 why do you wan't to be a team manager?
  • + 5
 It looks like a super fun job. I'll finish my marketing degree in December, so I really want to actually use it. It seems like team managers have a pretty great combo of getting to travel the world and meet great people while making sure that a company's reps (athletes) stay professional and maintain the image of the brand. It's really cool to be a communicator between engineers or product development teams and prototype testers.

 Next year these guys will be dangerus! As long as they dont get injured they will be probably top 1-3, 2014.
