This year, Remy spent his third summer in Whistler. Known primarily for his bike park riding, Metailler also showed his diverse range of skills at the Red Bull Rampage while still pumping out numerous edits. The goal of our third project together was to find some new lines and create a video that would make people see the bike park differently. Weather and timing made this our most difficult production yet, but we are really excited about the final product and feel that it is our best piece yet.

Project Presented By:
Race Face Performance Products
Whistler Mountain Bike Park

Music:
DL Incognito
Best Years ( I Care )

Athlete:
Remy Metailler

Production:
Influx Productions


MENTIONS: @raceface / @WhistlerMountainBikePark / @remymetailler / @influxproductions

 @brutalpedz I think that's the sound of high velocity damping oil rushing through shim stacks

 Haha. Noice!
  • + 6
 I never saw anyone ride with this amount of speed combined with the big air he gets. I'm pretty sure if I hit one of those jumps with that speed I would get launched into earths orbit.

 @camcoz69 That's the bleed port between negative and positive air chambers.
If it was oil you could hear that same noise on coil shocks, which is not the case.
You can hear the same kind of noise on the CCDBAir.

 Jack - T- Media Hardtail 26'er, truly some kind of PB hero right there.
  • + 2
 @brutalpedz Them how do you explain that the S*toy coil shock makes the exact same noise? I know cause i had them both... And it's a beautiful sound!
  • + 0
 Two possibilities: Bad bleed, there's air in the oil. Or the shaft seal is too tight to be well lubricated, not a real issue because while wearing it will be ok.

 @Jack-T-Media we need to talk sponsorship for next season Wink

 @comacruz - these were the lines you hit at whistler right?

 @mr-eric he tried the wc circuit but hes not able to qualify, wc is on another level even if this video is showing how skillez Remy is.
  • + 14
 Because I crashed and had an issue doesn't mean I'm not able to qualify. Bad luck those two weeks, hopefully a bit more luck next time.

 @remymetailler i am not saying you cannot do it, just need to get more experience on the circuit and i am pretty sure you will be up there because you got all it takes, just need experience and practice in races, i hope to see you up there one day, your first rampage was amazing by the way congrats on that and keep up the good work!

 Whistler is jumpable. On anything. Especially crabapple hits. You could jump bus off those kickers. V3 for life though. Biased.

  • + 72
 At this point I wouldn't be surprised if in the next edit Remy just gapped the whole park in one single sketchy secret line.
  • + 68
 Watching this, all I can think is that Rémy Métailler rides Whistler like he's an extension of the park itself... less like he's choosing a path and more like he's simply tracing the lines the mountain always intended. Endless detail in motion - cheers to all on yet another world-class edit.
  • + 30
 new pinkbike chief of marketing?
  • + 6
 Wouldn't say no.
  • + 7
 i agree, some of those lines are such high consequence and he makes it look so effortless. Rad.
  • + 70
 Clearly, I missed a few lines this summer. Going back for 2016.
  • + 6
 Let us know how that works out ...
  • + 46
 You know a video is super sick when you hit the "Add to favourites button" before the video has even ended
  • + 72
 Are you kidding? When it's Remy, you favorite before the video even starts.
  • + 1
 ditto!!, although sometime i get to watch him stomp these lines in person.
  • + 45
 After being burned and destroyed Whistler is now getting attacked. Someone should really bring peace to Whistler.

 Indian!! Let's call things by their name. Saying "indian" is no insult; they were free mens, far from modern civilization ...
  • + 22
 Real native american here, "Indian" is offensive because.. we're not from india. But its really not a big deal.

Call us Savage, or Prairie Ni**er, then we've got a problem! lol
  • + 3
 No problem in my language I guess: "Indián" - male native American, "Ind" - male from India.
  • + 37
 His videos are becoming the Ken Block Gymkhana videos of Mountain biking. I can not relate to any part of this guys ride speed and style but maaaaaan its a pleasure to watch.

 I think he's the Remy Metailler of the mountain bike world
  • + 27
 What do his crashes look like??!! I wonder if the impact from one of the lines gone bad was what killed all the dinosaurs... For sure what happened.
  • + 1
 He wrecked on the line at 1:17/1:19. It's on his facebook I believe, it's gnarly looking.

 How can he just huck it into these really rooty lines in the narrow gaps between trees?! The balls of this guy..
  • + 6
 That's what I'm screaming, that landing at 1:20 was goddamn ridiculous. Like I'm just gonna boost the shit out of this and land in these crazy roots at mach looney. No biggie.

 THe launching into the trees is crazy balls....hes like missile, hope his aim is never off!

 Between 1.17 and 1.19 he got it wrong when he landed on the roots

 classic massive French ego.

 The beginning of the edit, What are we looking at here? Early out, what are we doing? We are doing something with this rock. Long jump to a blind landing… the best idea I have ever had.
  • + 22
 When you go as big as him I would imagine most of your landings are blind.They're practically in another state!
  • + 29
 You can't see past the natural curvature of the Earth.
  • + 12
 There was once a comment like this:
"Camera man: I can see a few jumps in this section.
Remy: I can only see one".

Remy does not ride Whistler. He fcukin owns it. 50/50 with Kovarik.
  • + 1
 Chris K is still faster, it's an old age and treachery thing! We were lucky enough to see them both in action at the park, both are great guys and stylish as.

 was he using clipless pedals that whole time?

 yessir
  • + 8
 You know when you have a decent run and when you get to the bottom you're stoked? Imagine how Remy feels. Wild amount of talent.

 This is why remy is my favorite rider. Hes like a crazy mix between semenuk's natural style, and gwin's insane speed. Awesome vid remy as always

 Best ad for Haven rims ever.

 2 things:
How are you not on the world cup scene?
and that will be impossible on tubes...
  • + 5
 He is. He raced wc #5 and #6 this year.
  • + 6
 but he didn't qualify.
  • + 24
 And didn't qualify. Goes to show how good the top world cup racers are
  • + 0
 ^this imagination is insane.
  • + 11
 I think comparing a guy like Remy to world cup racers is a bit silly. Racers are a completely different breed of riders. Remy has insane speed and skills, but racers have to maintain a solid pace for 4 minutes, have to find lines that are the perfect mix of fast and not too sketchy, need to get used to the track in about 8 runs,... When Gwin first started on the wc circuit, he said himself he lacked in terms of skills, but he could still get top10s. Fitness and "racecraft" are what makes the difference between a great rider and a great racer.
  • + 1
 yeah for sure. but not everyone is like gwin. a lot of racers are making exact the same riding in their off time. and remy is also competing in races and has good racing skills, too. additional to that he makes extra training, dieting, mx etc. riders like brannigan, macdonald, smith, fairclough, dale, bryceland, altwill, atherton's, atkinson... they all have great hucking and park skills like the frenchman. remy said is was extremly hard to compete in a wc race but he is definitly able to get into racing. their goals just different, but i can imagine that remy would like to race in wc's. sorry for bad english.
  • + 2
 He didn't qualify because he crashed and had a mechanical error at the other race, not because he was slower than everybody else
  • + 1
 At Windham Troy crashed and finished 6th. Remy is fast, but the top world cup guys are incredible
  • + 2
 Troy has been on the circuit for 5 years and obviously his training last/this year paid off, he was consistently fast and fun to watch. I'm not trying to discredit anybody here. Remy just had a string of bad luck, and that's how racing goes sometimes, he still has the potential to place. He was up on the split times when he fell on the plunge drop this year.
  • + 5
 Goddamn. That was violent! Unreal riding!
  • + 5
 The new whistler pump track is open for French business
  • + 2
 Bounce transition landings to burm rail = bad ass. Way to go Remy. Love the speed, style and flow. Well done to all involved.

 I have become tired of Remy's POV 'edits'. This is the type of video that made him famous and get sponsored. This is the type of video that made us fall in love with him. Fucking sick vid!!!
  • + 2
 Please correct me if I'm wrong but I think I read somewhere that he didn't even qualify for the WC, which only shows how fast these guys are, even those outside the top 50 you'd normally watch..

 Comment was meant to be on the guy above's comment...

 holy shit. that dude goes way too fast, on the gnarliest stuff. But maybe it's easier when you only ride over half of it. Wow...

 Wow rampage did not do him justice. He looked fast at rampage but this video truly shows how fast he is. Dude is insane just sending it off anything. Its like he was trying to break his bike haha. Dope video
