Steve Vanderhoek Breaks Arm While Filming in Squamish with Remy Metailler

Aug 10, 2021

Steve Vanderhoek broke his wrist a couple of days ago while filming a video with Remy Metailler. The two were knocking off some lines and gaps for a Squamish shreddit and Vanderhoek says he landed a little deep and just couldn't shut it down in time for an off camber corner. He says he ended up cartwheeling down the slab for a long ways and that he's just happy its not worse. It was the very last feature of the day.

bigquotesBeyond bummed to be back on the injured roster but mistakes happen and glad it wasn’t worse. Was having way to much fun on the bike these days. Took a big tumble filming and walked away with just a fractured wrist. Few minutes before I got to tag this gap on Intestinal Fortitude that I never thought I would attempt. Cause of the steepness I didn’t think I could shut it down before the ultra tech pinched out exit. Thanks @remymetailler for coaching me and motivating me through. Should be a fun video dropping soon of that day.

Hoping it’s a minor and complication free recovery and be back doing radical awesome things with the buds in no time.
Steve Vanderhoek


Vanderhoek says he'll be seeing the orthopaedic doctor today to ensure there's aren't any complications. He'll have to be off work from his day job at the firehall, but that should just give him more time to hike around and scout for new features for future projects. You can expect to see a video of the crash next week.

We wish him the best of luck with recovery and can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

 Good on him for having a job like the rest of us, But at the same time he should be highly paid for shredding as hard as he does what an absolute legend of a rider. Heal up!

 The three amigos Remy, Joann and Steve are the biggest inspiration on the internet right now. They are on a different level compared to all other youtubers

 It's a cool colab because Remy and Yoann are pro bikers for their day job, while Steve is a pro-level rider who's technically an "amateur" 'cause he's got a day job Smile

 I think you missed the recent news about PB selling out. Its already apparent in the title about Steve breaking an arm and the first sentence states his wrist is broken. CLICKBAIT

 @scott-townes: Yeah I broke my wrist and was at the pump track 2 days later. Would never call it my arm that is a different level injury.

 Does he get sick pay?

If so he must be loaded with the edits he's been dropping lately.

 I'd love to have kept doing this kinda riding, but dice roll after dice roll is always going to get ya eventually... even with such attention to detail, focus and ability clearly on display. Considering how difficult it is, thank you Steve n' crew for keeping the freeride flame alive and working so hard to capture and bring it all to us from the beautiful BC corridor. Massive respect and get well soon!

 I met Steve at the lions bay rope swing many years back. Had no idea he shredded on a bike until about a year ago. Legendary individual. Heal fast, Steve!

 Bummer. Trail building for PT! Just be careful not to mess up your good arm/shoulder by overdoing it one armed.
