bigquotesIt's been 10 years since Brendan became part of the Commencal family and there have been few riders with whom we’ve written such a long story!

Brendan helped us create history with the birth of Commencal in Canada and back in the day, he was part of our Young Guns Program with Micayla Gatto, Casey Brown and Remi Gauvin. Still today that would be one hell of a team! We also remember those magical videos with Aaron Larocque. For us, Brendan embodies the exact vision we have of both British Columbia and MTB!

When we were given the opportunity to work with Scott Secco for this video we didn't hesitate for a second because we're such fans of his work. This latest edit has definitely not changed our opinions.

Thank you for these 10 beautiful Howey years. Looking forward to drinking a Bloody Mary (or two) with you in Whistler next summer and making lots of new projects!
Yannick Commencal

 @Twoplanker110 stoked you enjoyed it! Howey has the best style ever.

 @scottsecco So the mouthguard...recent orthodontic work he didn't want mashed? A burly move prior? Braces and a bloody mouth from a prior stunt gone wrong?
  • + 2
 @bizutch That's actually thought to reduce the likelihood of concussions, as it prevents your jaw from clamping down super hard (not sure if the science is conclusive, but better than doing nothing hopefully). It's why you'll see many of the top slopestyle athletes wearing them in competition too.

 So sick both of you ????????

 @Nico-T thanks dude! Stoked you enjoyed it.

 Having a mouthguard is so freeride. Bike Industry should look into it. SRAM SL D3o Mouthguard.
  • + 1
 SRAM has already applied for a patent to add an extra mouth to every new guard annually.
