Video: Rémi Gauvin in 'Slayer Raw' Episode 2

Dec 11, 2019
by Rocky Mountain  


The first Slayer Raw cut featured Carson Storch riding big hits in the Utah desert. A stark contrast from Episode 2 shot on Vancouver Island. Rémi grew up on Vancouver Island and the technical, wet trails of the coastal rainforest have played a major role in shaping him as a rider.

Rémi first signed with Rocky Mountain in 2015 and began racing enduro in the 2016 season. Rémi had his best season to date this year finishing 6th overall in the Enduro World Series and winning the Canadian National Enduro Championship. Outside of the race tracks, he rides just as hard as when the clock’s ticking. Wet roots, blind corners, and slippery chutes are all part of what makes the riding on Vancouver Island some of the best in the world.

 wonder why RM are doing so much marketing for the slayer in the lead up to the field test review?

 because why wouldn't you?

 I was thinking that... Although it was up against a yeti

 Maybe it was a snap decision by the marketing team.

 Pretty sure it's just marketing. They had a huge marketing campaign planned for the Slayer from the beginning. And I fell for it. Just got my full metal Slayer.

 I'd say they are setting their bikes apart... from the rest.

 Mt. Prevost.... where you go if you want to learn how to go fast. Bruni was spotted there last weekend.

 A few years back in the BC Junior series I was the 4th rider on the list and Remi was 5th, my whole goal that day was not to get passed given the 30 second gap between riders. I had one of my best results of the season that day 5th place overall... and still got past. If I remember correctly he had a nearly 20 second gap on second place. The man is unbelievably fast.

 Wow that was not too shabby at all. My mouth literally opened up at the last drop.

 Add this to the "I wish I could ride like that" list. When does one know when their level of riding permits a full face helmet or not?

 When they make a tiny mistake and hit a tree with their face at full clip... crazy that he's not wearing a fully for this! Too many close calls and I wear a chin bar for all my descents now. No reason for me not to.

 I shudder to think how some of my face to rock crashes would've turned out without a full face... at least the dentists would have more slayer money...

 @islandforlife: Smoking your face on a tree is not a 'tiny' mistake.

 Couldn't watch it because of the heinously overamplified tire noise. Awesome riding from Remi as usual though.
