Rémy Métailler has quite a unique place in the sport, being well known for his Rampage performances, and his urban downhill racing, but he is also a busy product tester for many brands. We sit down to chat about how Rémy has built his career within the mountain bike industry, and some of his experiences along the way. We also talk athlete pay, world cup downhill, how he approaches big features, and plenty more, so hit play and give it a listen.

 Whenever people ask me why I'm so obsessed with Whistler I show them clips of Remy riding in Whistler. Then even my parents understand. I'm 35 years old.

 its over rated. perhaps i'm jaded from living in whistler for over 10 years and have a 1000 bike park days but i never wanna live in whistler again . there are better bike parks in the interior of bc (silverstar, kickinghorse, sunpeaks )

 @DHsender4life: yeah no tell me where to find another a-line or dirt merchant. Also, the crankworx hype is real and no where can replace that. Plus everyone speaks English so no duo lingua needed.

 best trails in Whistler are not in the bike park.... I used to go to Crankworx but it's too busy now and over hyped.

 He talks on the podcast about getting good on his bike so he could be a product manager in the bike industry. Might have over done it a bit lol

 Whistler is what you make it, like any tourist town it has a light side and a dark side, just bring lots of cash.
