Video: Remy Metailler Takes a Lap of Squamish's Squamish Freeride Trails with the Trail Builder

Jun 9, 2020

Squamish is full of amazing trails, and Matt Bolton has built a few of them!

Riding Poacher, Expected to Fly and Influencer is probably one of the best lap I know. Following Matt Bolton down his own trail was a tonne of fun! Jumps, drops, boner log, tech... everything you need for a tone of fun and more.

 These videos are a true public service to the mountain bike community. Seriously, riders like me should not be on those trails. And I consider myself a competent PNW rider. True double blacks not to be messed with. Respect for the trail design and construction. Dialled riding. I’ll stick to BC single blacks!

 When it looks big, steep, tech and difficult on a gopro you know in real life that is 200% imminent death

 I live in Squamish and came across the road gap on Poacher when riding the trail it jumps over. 10/10 agree with your comments, as it applies to slab and woodwork lines too. I like exploring double-black trails here to ride the odd feature that I can, but I never call it 'riding' them, mostly hiking.

That being said, giving them a go is how you grow!

 I don't see any ride arounds for me!!!!. Holy sh!!!!t that was some insane riding.

 Remy sure does make it look easy. I agree, would be nice to see at least a couple of ride arounds for some of those bigger gap jumps to at least avoid possible massive carnage. I lived in Squamish for over 10 years and kind of glad these trails were not there then, or I might only be riding a wheelchair now...

 @mattboltz: Cool, great job on the trails and those are some crazy big features you built. I sure liked Squamish when I lived there, as it is an outdoor mecca, Squamish has some of the best MTB trails around, great dirt biking, snowmobiling, kayaking, wind surfing, rafting (many lakes, rivers & ocean), hiking, rock climbing, Eagle watching, plus some of the best ski resorts nearby (Whistler, Blackcomb, & 3 North Shore mountains just over 30min away...)

 Whats most impressive, is how close He rides while sending the gaps and talking it through the entire time!

 Did you forget your OneUp EDC Tool at home? Wink

 Actually, it’s even dangerous, that pinch zone is not as soft as a normal top cape

 I think I remember him responding to a question like this is that it's a sponsorship issue. He keeps it in his pack.

 He’s sponsored by Topeak and uses their multi tool.

 Does the new Expected To Fly follow the original line at all? All I remember from circa 2007 was a RH wooden berm, a drop and I think it was a clear cut back then!

 Yep, almost exactly minus the entrance and exit.
