Video: Remy Metailler Rides Åre Bike Park's Rockiest Trail

Jul 17, 2019
by Rémy Métailler  


This is probably the rockiest downhill track I have ever ridden in a bike park, but also one of my favourite "natural trail" I have ever ridden. My friend Oscar Harstrom leads me down Hälljrad in the Are Bike Park. That was my first time down this trail. Not the easiest to ride blind as some section can be confusing. It can take you a few laps to get used to it!

 @pyromaniac then the title would actually make sense

 @colincolin: Keywords in headlines and titles are traditionally always capitalized. Secondary words e.g. 'and' are usually exempt.

But do agree with changing the 'A' as it confuses the reading of the title.

 I was in Åre the same week and saw you there a couple of times. I even had the chance to say hello once at the bottom of the VM8 lift. You're an awesome dude and it was a treat to se you shred in real life.

 I always say, if you can ride a golf cart on it - it's not a mtb trail - now that's a mtb trail!

 TIL A-line is not an mtb trail

 Fly to Trondheim , it's pretty easy.

 @mtb-jon: Correct - it is a dirt road with table top jumps and some other stuff. Most of it is golf cart-able.

 Watching the terrain, all I could think was “Welcome to Austin, TX. Except trade the wind for heat stroke.” Looks like a fun!

 Always wanted to go there, shame it’s so inconvenient to get to from the UK.

 Just a quick trip with a rowboat and a refreshing trek!

 @ears-in-snow Fly in to either Trondheim or Östersund. It takes a bit longer than to fly to, say, Geneva from the UK, but it’s not too bad. The riding is worth it for sure, and the village is pretty cool as well with plenty of bars and restaurants.

 I've been there five years in a row now, always rad times. Definetly worth the 11 hour drive!

 looks like my kind of trails but minus the wind, rain and cold.

 Did he just say "It's rough, but at the same time it's super smooth" and it made total sense?

 I crashed there on my one day I had to ride it. 17,000km from home, so going to be hard to get back there!

 I messaged him, but he found an excuse. Happy wife, happy life.

 @remymetailler: hahahaha. That is funny. Couldn't agree more. Fantastic work Remy

 To be fair, Gothenburg (Waki) to Åre is 850km.
  • + 4
 @mitochris: To be fair, Whistler (Remy) to Åre is almost 7000km (as the crow flies)... Big Grin
