Adios, au revoir, goodbye... After 3 years with the COMMENCAL family, Remy Metailler is moving onto new things.

Thank you Rémy, for your professionalism, your taste for style and your management of the perfect image. To remember these good times we've put together a mini-edit that we believe sums this all up pretty well.

Good luck to you and remember that our Andorran door is always open!

bigquotesWhen I got in touch with Commencal end of 2013, I was not a pro, not many people knew me. I had not really traveled or do anything crazy, I was just having fun on a bike. When we signed a one year contract back then, I had no idea what the brand would actually bring me and where it would take me but Max and Yannick trusted me. At the time I was just a kid stoked to get some support to do what I loved the most. It has been 3 years absolutely unbelievable. I have learnt so much, grew up a tonne personally, professionally and keep such great memories of our relationship. Thank you for everything you have done for me Commencal, good luck for the future plans and see you on the trails. Remy Metailler

 Don't worry mate, even the shitest music like this can't ruin a remi edit. Hope you are on the mend so we can see some more edits soon. Still remember loosing my shit when I saw your first major edit.

 @browntown40: then you have NO idea what the f " hood" really means. As a black man from the REAL hoods of Los Angeles. We take offense when people say stuff like that. You have no idea what it's like kid nor does he. And poor choice for a song @COMMENCALbicycles you couldn't find the song I didn't say N* 100 times . WTF?

 Glad to hear you didn't choose the music--I have to be honest I was losing respect for one of my favorite shredders there for a minute. That comment saved me from a difficult transition--Remy Metailler is still my favorite person to watch ride Whistler (and Hafjell now too)

 @PLC07: yeah i know but this one was a little over the top which is why i was wondering if they did it as a joke.

 Judging by the music, I guess he'll be riding this next year Wink hummer-bike.com
  • + 30
 @GiantHuck: I really like hiphop as well. But hiphop is music about pain and emotions, often used to make people think about how to make the world a better place with less hate. Songs like this one about "n#ggas" and "b#tches" are a disgrace to hiphop music. It's not music, it's puke.
  • + 2
 @Mattin: yeah well everyone has their own definition of how everything should be but yeah, once a genre has been around for a while a part of that scene tends to lose its original soul, for the better or for the worse. It happened to punk/metal/jazz and countless others. Not much you can do about it.

For all we know this could be an inside joke too.

 Who chooses the music for these things? I mute over half of all mtn bike vids.

 Heads up @COMMENCALbicycles

If you are company releasing a company video with your company's name and logo in it, General rule of thumb is that you don't use music with lyrics like "No matter how much dick I give my bitch she asks for more..."

In fact, I highly recommend just using instrumental music. It is universal across all languages and will not offend anyone.

Lesson learned right?

 @oregonryder: good point bro not very professional ey is it now. Well said PS: I accidentally unliked comment so bear in mind you have extra like
  • + 21
 Everyone always whine the Gwin and Gee are way too serious but when a manufacturer releases a tongue in cheek goodbye video everybody gets all corporate-serious. Do I have to remind you that this is a sport where most participants seem to be more interested by the post ride beer than the ride itself and that Ratboy was our collective hero last year. Come on.
  • + 2
 @PLC07: to be fair I loved konas 'kona process challenge' video last year which had ganja farmer tune in background and was as in serious as it could get so you have a point

 @oregonryder: That is very true if you're a Fortune 500 company.

 @oregonryder: no see, it's a metaphor - his "bitch" is his bike, and the dick he's giving it is laying off the brakes and letting it run, but no matter how fast he goes the bike just wants to gap bigger... yeh, that must be it!
  • + 1
 @GiantHuck: Yeah but he said he didn't choose the music for this one. I was glad to hear it cuz this shit can't compare to MOP.
  • + 2
 @PLC07: yeah I see so many black guys like myself. That ride MTB. most of us N* including myself.from da hood Can barley afford a good quality MTB. Most would rather put rims on their car and TVs in their car. Than to spend the money on a mountain bike. So you were saying about tongue-in-cheek because I don't see where that's funny or tongue-in-cheek.
Peace I'm out of this BULLSHIT!

 @Mac-Aravan: So they'd say adéu Wink
  • + 16
 I am guessing specialized. They lost a couple big budget guys this year plus I recall them having a rental deal with vail resorts (who now owns Whistler) so it would make sense
  • + 1
 I think so too. That's why whistler is parting ways with giant...because vail is specialized. YT now has a store in Squamish....so perhaps we will see remy on a YT!

 In good liberal american fashion, I'd like to point out that as a white man, I'm personally offended on behalf of black people everywhere, that a mountain bike video featuring a white rider used a rap that contained the "N" word. To think that Commencal or its non black riders could possibly fathom being able to appropriately contextualize the "N" word, is flat out appalling. I'll be at my local college in the designated safe space until I feel that I've proven to the world that I'm not racist.
