Video: Amaury Pierron's Winning Run POV from the Val di Sole DH World Cup 2024

Jun 17, 2024
by Ed Spratt  

bigquotesThis is one of those runs that are etched in the history books. With challenging, wet and slipper conditions, Amaury PIerron laid down on of the most insane runs we had seen. Val DI sole is not a track that is easy, it is very physically demanding and Pierron threw down a race run that was +4.893 up on the 2nd place spot. This is a run you won't want to miss.GoPr Bike

 To come back from a terrible injury, miss a full season of racing, then lay a heater like this on the last run at VDS?! Pierron's on another level.

 @Exbow: immature comment - you'd be screaming too if you had experienced what he had.

 On that track, in those conditions, after returning from a broken back last year! Such a committed style on the bike. Was a joy to watch him go that fast. Totally inspirational performance.

 You know it's fast when you can barely keep up visually with the helmet cam! Reminiscent of the Sami Hill runs of old!

 All due respect to mr hill... This pace is several bananas faster, obviously making it totally bananas.

 @Planetx888: all due respect to this comment and AP the beast.... The pace is several bananas faster but the bikes are several thousand bananas better than what Mr Hill was bombing down VDS on in his legendary 08 worlds run !! Hill in his prime v Amaury in his prime down steep techy gnar would of been a sight to be hold !!

 It's just so clean, especially when you remember that ninjas like Troy and Loris were being bucked and rattled the whole way down. Bonkers to think he can be so precise on one track, and also produce the legendary over the limit the whole way down grassy Les Gets runs

 That one was also unforgettable... the guy was floating!

 That pin ball between the rocks at 2:20 had me out of my seat on Saturday. Organized chaos at its finest. So glad to see Amaury back in top form. Dude is an animal.

 @Tormy: me too, man. I’m not a very passionate sports fan about any other sports. I jumped up and was charging the TV and my two daughters looked at me like I lost my shit. Greatest sport ever and such a cool time. Still pure.

 I'm personally insulted by how fast that was.

 As a slow rider, I find that run quite offending.

 Legendary. Maybe even better than his 2019 Les Gets run. Awesome to see you back Momo.

 This is the run you show to your MTB friends, the Les Gets run is the one you show to casuals to explain to them how it feels in your head going around the local XC course.

 Is he still human?
How can he be so incredibly fast on such a track?
A really exceptional champion!

 The rebuilt him. Better. Stronger. Faster.

 What the hell!? It looks even more insane when you see it from his viewpoint. The speed he carries is just mental, it almost looked like he got a boost coming out of every corner. Mind-boggling!

 From what I can see there's no crazy lines, no super insides or high setups, he just did the lines everyone else did at with absolute precision.
  • 4 0
 Yes precision is the key, front wheel landing on a tiny patch of dirt in between a web of slick rocks and roofs too to bottom

 Ruddy heck. Thats jolly quick.
I would love to see some form of eye tracking technology, so you can overlay a spot onto the video that shows where he's looking moment to moment. How do you take that much in that quickly?

 High pivot also shines in these conditions. Although i think he would have won on a trike too...just by 3 seconds instead of 4. What a run!!
  • 5 0
 We need also a camera pointing backwards to the rear wheel so pinball moments like can be appreciated

 @ridedigrepeat: What other sports/reporters are held to the same standard you expect for Pinkbike? A lot more people would be upset if Pinkbike didn't do their job and report on the race live as it happens than if they catered to you and stayed silent for days. You're being ridiculous.

 Looks like he his ridding a new type of DH bike, a DH railbike. Absolute amazing the commitment and sniper accuracy, perfect run 100%.
He is on mud tires,perfect bike setup and steel balls. Winning combo for the race!

 Not even having finger on front brake several sections!! insane commitment.

 That was insane. He doesn't seems to be aware of the dog poop-like conditions below him?

 Another Val di Sol legendary run, but two things. The roots were dry for final run, and a fender are they even allowed?
