There are a bunch of freeriders out there doing wild stuff, but few are able to ride the rowdiest lines with the same level of control and precision as Remy Metailler. The Whistler local is known for jumping over all the things, his seriously steep and exposed riding, and weekly GoPro footage that'll see you holding your breath with sweaty palms. In episode 157, Remy talks about the challenge of content creation, how he's able to ride with so much control, filming with a drone racing world champion, and how to be a professional freerider in 2023.

Got a question for Remy? Put it down below and he might give you an answer.

 Levy sounds like the kid who has a girlfriend in Canada who is definitely real.

 @vapidoscar: Alaska or Quebec (or both). I fifteenth the Lets Have Wayne on a Pod - even a segment. Surely he & Levy have some stories to tell...

 I've always wanted an explanation from Remy about one of his favourite phrases, "Open your line!". I'm like 70% sure I know what it means, but then he occasionally says it where it doesn't necessarily make sense in the context I thought it did.

 You can take the Frenchie out of France, but you just can't take France out of the french.
Coming straight from team baguette's head honcho;
I smashed my face off because I was thinking of making delicious dinner for my compatriot whilst riding my bicycle down the mountain!

On t'aime comme t'est Raymond, mais mon dieu, prends bien soin de toi! On veut pas te voir prendre ta retraite avant looooongtemps!

 When I listen to this later, will I be content with content about content creation?

 If don’t find yourself content with the content about content creation, you could contribute to the conversation by becoming a content creator.

 @Sleeperific: I'm already contentedly creating, about which I create content which other content creators curate to create their own content:

 Remy Metailler and Killian Bron are two of the best riders on the planet in my opinion. Both of your YouTube channels are second to none.

 love remy's content. he comes off sincere, humble, and not like a YouTuber. he gets down to business and manages to provide riding inspiration and tips to me as a viewer. he always has great guest riders too

 Heads up to whoever uploads these things to other podcast platforms: something is very broken with pinkbike podcast on Google podcasts. Go check it out... this episode shows a run time of 6 hours, but it just loops randomly several times to get that long.

 Usually not a fan of the podcasts with guests as I really like the pink bike crew busting on each other but liked this one. Very interesting to hear from Remy.

 The phone comments and airplane mode reminded me of Father Ted....

 Random question: im looking for a low stack saddle, just trying to squeeze in as much drop as possible. Any ideas? No one seems to publish this dimension, which would be really helpful. My default saddle has been the WTB volt just for reference

 Nukeproof Proof Horizon. It's a very good Spesh Power knockoff with the lowest stack I could find, to slam a 180mm dropper in. I gained about 6 or 7 mm over a more traditional shaped SDG Radar Ti.

 Is anyone experiencing problems with the podcast on google podcasts? It's showing as a 6 hours total with lots of parts repeating themselves over and over for me.

 In Remy’s first big video he looked like such a wildman, it was so weird to find out how calculating an.d precise he actually is.
  • 1 0
 For as calculating / precise as he is it still looks pretty wild to me. Yeah, Brage's got the style & look down pat but Remy still comes off as wild as shit (to me) when the action is on.

 @Mtn-Goat-13: I think at some point it’s too steep/fast to be pretty. Look at Steve binning it on his own line, those guys are not fooling around.

 @ooklathemoc: Agreed on that, and that Remy in true French fashion has style but - he's still pretty damn wild. I think 50% of Brage's deal is the hair & beard, flannel flying but - he also does have a naturally wild style (wilder than Remy clearly). And no - not fooling around. I love going fast and getting Strava PRs, upping my times & hangin' w/ the younguns but this an another level entirely and I don't imagine for 3 seconds I'll ever be on it. Cheers -

How often do you repeat the same trails in your off camera riding? Do you repeat trails to drill or practice bike handling, body positioning, etc?

 Still remember when I helped you digging a new track in la Mouliere and talking about the fun I had in Whistler. It was in 2006 or 2007, something like that I think.

 Love the content Remy releases. Absolutely crazy lines but he manages to make it all seemed controlled.

 Remy is a World Champ. The UCI just haven't invented the category yet.
