The unmistakable style of a racer - Yoann has it in spades.

Speed requires creativity. Yoann's skill on the bike allows him to choose lines down the mountain that not many other people can follow.

He may be a competitive racer, but you would be hard pressed to find someone who has more fun on their bike than this guy.

Pete isn't always looking for the quickest lines. His laps are filled with plenty of manuals, whips and the occasional fast plant.

Some pilots are more comfortable in the air than others.

Pete is one of the Bike Park's main builders. With that comes an intimate understanding of every rock, root and jump in the park. Here he sends a sneaky transfer line on No Joke.

Not your typical surgeon's hands.

 Pretty awesome to see Yoann's image slightly going away from the "top EWS Racer", he is not only that but an amazing biker on all bikes, and most of all a crazy frenchy but real gentleman! Big Grin Good video boys, we can't wait for Crankworx!! #proudsponsor

 @WhistlerMountainBikePark:

This vid just made my day....I've been training my balls off for our BC trip. 10 guys for my 40th hitting Squamish, Pemperton, and WMBP. I now have patella tendinitis and was bummed to miss out on all the killer trail riding in the area. I guess I'll just have to hit the best bike park in the world for all 6 days!!!

 Most impressive part of the video is Yoann sprinting through the crowd at the Fitzsimmons lift. Nobody want to burn that much energy on flat ground when you're at Whistler. Big Grin
