Check out Whistler Wildman and OneUp team rider Jesse Melamed ripping our favourite Sunshine Coast loamers.

They say shredits are dead, but we don't care. When we sleep we dream we're the MelaSHRED riding loam ribbons at light speed.

Sweet dreams, from your friends at OneUp Components

Big thanks to Paul the builder for the rake and dream ride and JF at Spin Cycles

Filmed by @PeterWojnar / Song - Not Led Zeppelin

P.S. No footage was sped up, Jesse is just damn fast! #SpeedPolice

 Man that dude is ripping. I like rooting for him as he seems like such a nice guy. Why's he so fast?
  • + 2
 He really does seem like such a nice dude. Makes me like him even more.

 Who knows! I just like to go fast!

 Nice vid! Hit all the marks for me; balls out riding, cool tune, and awesome helmet cam sequence. Does anyone know the name of the band from the soundtrack? I must listen to more!

 Great video! Best of luck for the race season, no injuries = more podiums. One of the nicest clean/light styles on the bike in the EWS.
  • + 9
 Thanks! That's the plan!

 Awesome video guys???????? It kept me in n the trainer for a little while longer. My freshly broken ankle feels better after watching that.
  • + 10
 Glad to hear that! Get it!

 This video doesn't exist to 2015 Pinkbike comments

"Short guys can't ride 29", he'd be faster on 650b" etc.

 Mtb and Greta Van Fleet. Awesome.

 Glad you liked it!

 Don't show IMBA

 It was all camera angles... that trail was 5% grade maximum... I swear.
  • + 2
 You know its super steep when it looks steep on a gopro.
  • + 3
 Holly f#$k! nice video/ camera skills. Nice to see someone look fast that is actually really really fast. Keep it pinned Jesse and there will be podium after podium in your future. Look out Sam you've been officially put on notice. NICE!!!!!!!!

 Any help on where this is on the Sunshine Coast? Or good areas to check out when visiting there?

Wanting to ride those trails, don’t expect to be going anywhere as fast...

 That video makes me want to ride. Too bad my area is in the middle of an atmospheric river. Whatever that means.
  • + 1
 It means you have our normal weather (NW Oregon)
  • + 1
 @steelpolish: Definitely not normal for Santa Cruz area.
  • + 1
 I've not been on Pinkbike in a while. Looked through all the posts and came straight to this one; as soon as I saw Jesse Melamed in the title that's all the info I needed. All the very best luck for the 2019 season Jesse.

 Dude rips! This would have been a cool video to have no music though. Just the sweet sound of slaying loam.
  • + 15
 Head over to instagram for the raw edit - www.instagram.com/oneupcomponents
Enjoy!

 what a trail and what a rider! awesome style, Jesse M videos are at the top of my all time fav list. and wasn't that a lost song from Zep III ?
  • + 8
 No, Greta Van Fleet: www.youtube.com/watch?v=86_vnQc1oBE But they sure do sound like Led Zep.
  • + 4
 So not Led Zep.
  • + 5
 Everytime I hear Greta Van Fleet it picture ADAM SANDLER singing Led Zep. I'm probably the only one.

 @trails801: could not agree more
  • + 1
 @trails801: that's not much of an endorsement is it?
  • + 1
 @cool3: i jest.

 Thanks man!

 Great job on that video,now ditch that 29 and start riding the 27,5 ,good luck for your racing season,and stay yourself man ,humble but hungry
  • + 2
 When he gets 20ft of air multiple times on a trail with seemingly no jumps....
  • + 1
 Jesse is just a smooth SOB! Dripping with style and control. The support of a factory team like Rocky and a bike like the Instinct...he hit the friggin lottery!
  • + 5
 Very thankful to be on Rocky for sure! The bike rips!
  • + 1
 Jesse, if you're out there. is your bike mostly stock, or do you over fork it and do other mods besides all high end parts and wheel inserts?
  • + 16
 Hello? Is it me you're looking for?
It's mostly stock! I do run a 170mm fork but otherwise it's 'stock' with our team parts.
  • + 1
 @JesseMelamed: I bet you will be even faster on the Slayer 29er.
  • + 1
 @JesseMelamed: is that a Shorty or Assegai you're running on the front?
  • + 1
 @DasProfessor: Assegai. Such a good tire.

 Bet that water bottle was scared witless

 He reminds me of a Canadian version of Yoann B...
  • + 2
 And they ride the same trails... Wink
  • + 3
 I suspect that this trail is not as easy as it looks...
  • + 2
 How this doesnt fall under the must watch category makes no sense, most stylish riding ive ever seen!!
  • + 3
 anyone know the song and artist digging the zeppelin feel

 greta van fleet - see them live, you won't regret
  • + 3
 @santacruz-ing: just listened to one song. Gave me goose bumps!! Thanks!!
  • + 2
 @santacruz-ing: I saw them live in Boston. It was incredible. Fantastic band
  • + 3
 1:04 I didn't realize Melamed was a french name...
  • + 6
 I know I'm sorry! The trail just kind of flowed that way...but I should have stuck to the trail as it was built.
  • + 1
 I just can't get over how much he looks like the dude from the intro of Super Troopers. Just going over the boarder for some fries and gravy sir.

 I really like watching riders getting rad on non-imba approved terrain! rock on !
  • + 1
 "Big thanks to Paul the builder for the rake..." word. these trails are looking mint!
  • + 1
 Rad edit and rad song. Cool to see Jessie ready to rip for the season and super stoked for him to rip it up this year!
  • + 1
 Now when’s the ski edit dropping? I think you’ve got a double back on 3rd step in ya
  • + 1
 Hrmm, and here I thought POV video didn't show how steep stuff was worth a .....
  • + 2
 Exactly

 That POV...
  • + 1
 Where is that ??
  • + 2
 Some of it is on Mach Chicken in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast (the log gap jump half way through with the blue pads on the trees in the landing).
  • + 2
 @gramboh: Yeah, I saw that too! The last line looked like one at the runout from Amuse Bouche and/or hiJacKeD
  • + 1
 double post

 I think I saw some Built To Spill.

 It's not the Sunshine Coast.....It's Fraser Valley Smile

 1:15 to 1:35 hint: believe it is last stage from 2015 Sunshine Coast Enduro. That was a classic event. Glory days of this new "Enduro" format. The 3rd last stage is as loamy as it gets - think I was one of the few to ride in 2018 (Red Trail).

 Do you even Strave, bro?
