Video: Remy Metailler Tackles Whistler's Green Monster Trail with Claire Buchar

Aug 16, 2019
by Rémy Métailler  

My favourite trail in Whistler? Very possibly! And who better than bronze medalist at World Champs, long-time Whistler Local, and shredder Claire Buchar?

Green Monster is one of her favourite trails as well, the climb starts right outside her door and she rides it a lot from April to October!

Find out more about Green Monster here:

And more about Claire here on her Instagram: @claire_buchar

She also offers professional MTB coaching here:

If you enjoyed this trail and want to ride it, I advise you to join the Whistler Off-Road Cycling Association:, this way you will be able to support trails like this one!

Thanks a lot to the trail builders for the work!

What trail should I ride next?

 It's funny Claire hardly needs an introduction and describing her only as a world champs bronze medallist doesn't do her career justice ironically. When I grow up I want to ride bikes like her.

 Claire and Remy make those loose, jagged rock climbs at the start look flowy!

The middle line off that first big rock is is really harsh. I haven't solved it yet and it has cost me a rear tire and a few bruises. I'll be back to try it again in a couple of weeks.

The rest of the trail really is smooth; now I'm inspired to string it all together instead of stopping for photos.

 I didn’t appreciate how sick a rider Claire is. I do now. Respect.

I would love to see her rock that on a Doctahawk. Or any other Chromag offering.

 I would dig the opportunity to follow a local on any west coast trail... (east coast guy here). Seriously great trails, ya'll got it soooo good out there. However, if you want to trade some tech for some flow, let me know, haha. Cheers!!

 C'mon out and hit us up! Even when I inter-travel the West, I often wind up tailing a trail builder or zealous local. There's always a guru within reach and nobody bites!

 Is it just me or is this footage a bit hard to watch in this age of electronic image stabilisation? Why is it so shaky?

 Looks like it is hyper smooth GoPro footage. Gets worse the darker it is. I don’t mind it so much but the over bright, constantly re adjusting exposure look of these new gopros kills me. I loved the hero 4 black look a lot better tbh.
