Rémi is Ready for Racing - Video

Mar 16, 2017
by COMMENCAL bicycles  


It’s only a few weeks until the first DH World Cup in Lourdes, France (28th – 30th April) and so it’s time for Rémi Thirion to fine-tune his preparation. Remi is always up for discovering new tracks and so when he headed South to Spain, naturally we followed him! After the Canary Islands, it was destination Galiciaon the Atlantic coast that provided the perfect setting for training.

We couldn’t resist sharing a few of these images with you…

 @troky777: can you ride the track well on a enduro bike?
was "there" one month ago racing in ponteareas, and i seriously considering going there for a ride now
  • + 2
 @rcksurfer: Cheers bud!
  • + 1
 @tiagomano: With a enduro bike is very difficult but not imposible if you have big balls and good brakes
  • + 1
 @troky777: the balls were a little bit bigger when i race dh 2 years ago, but as for the brakes, i have some saint on it
  • + 1
 @tiagomano: tienes alternativas a todos los saltos pero hay algunas zonas donde se puede pasar mal con una enduro ya que es más vertical de lo que parece en los videos
  • + 1
 @troky777: normalmente so se for un salto mui grande é que no mando, lo resto faço sempre.
eu ando normalmente em pistas de DH para treinar para las carreras de enduro.

alguma vez vieste ao regional do minho em portugal? muitos espanhois vem correr ca
  • + 1
 Increïble trabajo!! Vaya trail más guapo, cuanto has tardado para construirlo?
  • + 1
 @tiagomano: A pista sólo ten un salto largo que e o da pista, mínimo tes que saltar 14 metros para non facer corto, cando queras vir aquí tes casa e un amigo

 @Slaysoft: 7 meses mis manos lo dicen todo ????????

 That sequence shot is awesome. Reminds me of the old only mag no net snowboard days, when i was staring at and focusing those Devun Walsh's fs 540s for hours, more of those please.

 Excellent Devun Walsh reference!

 With all the videos commencal has been putting out this winter he better be ready!
  • + 5
 always the bridesmaid and never the bride. he can lay down some solid qualifiers, hope he can link a few full runs together this year.
  • + 1
 actually he was the bride once.

 Remi and Commencal go together like powerful boners and watching Remi ride.
  • + 1
 This year i hope that there would be more coverage for the truly fast guys and gals, there seems to be way too much attention towards racer antics and shenanigans, that people like Remi, Troy and Blenki don't get just coverage. I think we all dream of the glory days of Peaty, but peaty was having fun and winning, Now people seems to glorify paddock antics more that podium appearance,
  • + 3
 Fastest in the gnarliest sections all year. Look out when he finally gets on a roll
  • + 3
 I wish I could ride like that! Awesome mix of speed and style. Looks like he has so much fun!

 The riding was sick, but props to the photographer as well. Every one of those photos popped hard! BW for wild relief, good job!
  • + 1
 Comencal just keep producing the goods!

And WTF Remi, you're not human. That first drop was insane hahaha. Gnar rock chute? Nah, that's a huck to flat.

 Nope. Why does every video have American music on it. Does the rest of the world not make their own music?
A French song to his riding would be nice.
