 In my head this is exactly what my riding looks like, reality is a cruel mistress
  • + 3
 Yeah, he's a shredder
  • + 56
 I know for a fact I can go faster than this! In an ambulance..... On my way to the hospital...... From trying to go half as fast as this.
  • + 5
 you could do this if you rode DVO stuff
  • + 10
 speed police in IG will be all over this one.
  • + 4
 @Kenfire24: not so sure... I got a ride down the mountain in the patrol buggy (broke hand) and still didn't beat KOMs on the trails next to fire road the buggy was on...

 If you ride a cube, you can go this fast

 Its wierd how when he sped up his video that he jumped a lot further... And looked more steezy. What voodoo video editor is this?
  • + 41

 Wish I had Remy’s bike skills, I also wish Remy had my taste in music.
  • + 15
 I was about to say ''Thank god Remy came back with good old hip-hop music''!! That's why I loved his old videos so much!!! lol
  • + 17
 Having ridden most of these trails and been super stoked just to consistently make tranny, this stuff is so impressive to watch. That pre-jump over the rock drop on a-line... dang.
  • + 14
 people have been paralyzed attempting the same....
  • + 4
 @eswebster: usual pre-hop is about 2m from the lip, Remy’s one is waaay bigger
  • - 1
 @eswebster don't joke about that dude. I broker my neck and my back (in 3 places). Had one of my vertebrae pinned up. I'll be back on the bike, but others won't...
  • + 21
 @vesko: he’s not joking. People really have. Sorry about your injury man!
  • + 13
 In the era of hundreds of bike vids, I generally get quickly bored while watching someone throwing whips on machine dug trails... but 1:32 made it all worth it... Jizzus Christ!
  • + 2
 Yep best part for me too
  • + 16
 more like "remy metailler sweeps up the bike park" with all those scrubs

 Très bon.

 You should say : "C'est bon pour le moral."

 Classic Remy video: High speed hucks and gaps out of this world, with a rap soundtrack.
  • + 8
 This video is so much better than studying
  • + 6
 The huck from berm to next jump on the top of the blue velvet track....damn I rode that bit, so yeah farrk he's quick!
  • + 7
 Wonder who's brakes he isn't running??
  • + 2
 Remy stated in the past that he has a very hard problem with arm pump and carpal tunnel, unable to ride at race pace for more than a minute and a half.
This is a terrible issue and even with surgery, it can not get away on 100%. He probably still has that problem, which might be the reason he does not participate into any races.
  • + 6
 That green DVO looks really nice on that bike.
  • + 5
 "You think you could go a little bit faster" Famous last words for anyone but him
  • + 5
 And it was a sweet burn on his haters who claim he speeds up his footage for PB clips. SUCKERS!!!!
  • + 3
 His videos when he was on the Giant Glory were so much better.Not saying his newer videos are bad but they are nothing compared to his old videos.
  • + 3
 I agree! His new edits are tops, but it's hard to beat those early ones!
  • + 3
 @oldfaith: that's the one my friend,thats the one!
  • + 1
 I remember when he was selling that old on Giant on IG. Decent price, and a day of riding with him at Whistler came with it.
  • + 1
 Having been to Whistler 2 years ago, it's just mind blowing how absolutely normal the left kicker on the jump at 1:37-1:42 looks on video. It's pretty huge in person, you hit it blind and are going Mach Chicken
  • + 2
 Ive had the pleasure of riding with, or should I say trying to keep up with, Remy a couple times.. No speeding up here, he really is that fast.
  • + 1
 Seems to have been ages since the last edit of him ripping whistler up!! Worth the wait for sure! Still think that bike is FUGLY but good to see him shred it!!!
  • + 1
 I'd like to see him and Vink in a dual edit on each others trails chasing each other on their respective lines... both so fast, so smooth.
  • + 2
 I love Remy's vids. That line off the A-Line drop I'd never seen before.......amaze balls
  • + 1
 That pre-hop was sooo dirty
  • + 1
 How come riders doing whips like this haven't "rear wheel problems" as : Twisted wheel ?

Is the secret is : Always try to land front wheel first ?

...
  • + 1
 Pull it back before you land. Besides, you'll lose your momentum if you don't. People do taco rims from landing severely sideways, but a well built wheel can handle the lateral forces from not quite getting it all the way back. Generally, if you rode it out, you weren't actually landing as far sideways as it felt.
  • + 3
 Gotta love the DL in your videos!
  • + 1
 what song is it?
  • + 1
 @Dmrbikes85211: admiration by DL Incognito. He is also an artist that was used quite a bit during the early 2000s for freestyle skiing.
  • + 2
 There was a comment on PB recently about how Remy speeds his vids up, I guess this is his tongue in cheek response lol
  • + 3
 Yoann's edit brought me here
  • + 1
 me too lol
  • + 3
 I bet he watches the tuesday tune
  • + 1
 Somebody PAY this DUDE more money. His sponsors should be Whistler (100k), Bike company ($100k), and anybody else that want their product on the best park biker to ever ride!
  • + 1
 If I had all those sponsors, I could do that. And that's why I would have all those sponsors. Da-gone, that boy doing thangs!
  • + 1
 Fun to see him ride trails I can ride ... however, I don't make them look like child's play. FML.
  • + 2
 No Slow-Mo....? Not today nor ever. Pure speed!
  • + 0
 wow. i don't understand how he doesn't win whip offs and air dh at crankworx whistler every. single. year. that oppo whip....
  • + 1
 I didn't see anyone riding. Oh wait, was he that blur hauling ass down the mountain?
  • + 2
 The only whistler edits I actually find the best, sick riding
  • + 1
 Anyone can see the wings on his back? I ask because I was unable to see them. He's going too fast.

Rémy always amaze me.
  • + 1
 Thanks Remy, I had the pleasure of watching this sideways due too your continual side ways action
  • + 8
 He was born sideways. I pity his mum. And this is what you get if you put wheels on a ballistic missile.
  • + 1
 I expect he even talks sideways.

 I'd love to see him give racing on the pro level a go. He just seems so ridiculously fast, but maybe that reckless style might be what does him in? Who knows????
  • + 1
 I recall reading something about him having a really big problem with arm pump making it impossible to put together the long runs needed for racing
  • + 7
 He was at MSA in 2015. But since he's not on the result sheet, he probably didn't qualify ...
  • - 2
 i thougt the same thing an then asked myself if overjumping coners would get you disqualified? because you have to stay inbetween the tape...?
  • + 3
 He did MSA last year and didn't qualify
  • + 1
 @leopaul:
Ah, makes sense. I didn't know he'd ever given it a go.
  • + 3
 @CF519: i checked a little deeper. he had the pace to qualify but crashed. he also went to Windham that year, but he isn't on the result sheet as well there. dunno if he even raced

 Haulin taters!
