CZ3 is a summer hit, we're warning you!

Like a good meme, the word “Joliiii" (“Yeeeeeww") will rain on bike parks everywhere.
Don’t be surprised if the people around you, your friends and even your kids are asking for a circular saw and a tarp after this!

Rumour has it that Thomas Estaque is already in the running for an Oscar!
Joliiii!

Riders : Hugo Frixtalon - Thomas Estaque - Amaury Pierron - Paul Couderc - Pierrick Lannes

 Now that is a kick-ass vid. Love what companies like Commencal and Santa Cruz bring to this sport - Pure simple fun, outstanding riders and a little humor. They keep the spirit of this sport alive and perpetuate the core of its very soul.

 the other companies might as well pack up, they'll never match the vibe that Commencal bring to almost every bit of content they release.

 I now own a supreme dh and it’s 100% because of “that” helmet cam run from the WC last year, loose AF

 Commencal might have the sickest team out there right now... at very least the most fun team

 There's always more than just biking in Commencal videos
- That's actually a Peugeot commercial I'd say
- Kinda disappointed they did not tried to land with their bikes inside the jacuzzi/car though

Great one ! Keep going

 1) I don't understand why they employ so many mtb pro bikers to sell tuned Peugeot cars.
2) Listening to what they say, Estaque doesn't seem to be such a cool guy Smile
3) This video remind us that "having fun" can be at the basis of an international industry
4) Many gestures, but no barriers and no limits. Waiting for the next one.

 @Timo82: This is what I was thinking. Really, the only thing I had in mind was the game is about to start and the Habs are about to loose again! Smile

 Man this vid takes me back to my bmx days in Alabama in the late 80s/early 90s. We used to buy junk yard cars for hijinx, laughs, and destruction. Turns out Alabama rednecks and French rednecks aren't all that dissimilar aside from the quality of the riding.
  • 7 2
 French rednecks are quite different from Alabama rednecks as they don`t practice lynch.. except when it`s about ill-treating bikes.

 @softsteel: BOOMMM !!! Haha I would upvote you 10 times if I could!

 OK - cool, and you could tell they were having fun and just flat out rippin. But that one footed landing and then just riding it out to drop your bike in front of your buddies? THAT was epic.

 Q: "So why'd you by a Clash?"
A: "Frat house Jacuzzi vert."

Seriously though it's such a fun bike. Hasn't turned me into a pro freerider, but I get to pretend I am when I ride mine.

 I'm a bit concerned for my mental health - French videos aren't seeming as weird to me as they used to.
(that Dr.John track is fire - RIP)

 The world without our frenchies would be a boring world. Too bad they did not invent the french fries though...
