Words: Fred Austruy

I'm a French Mountain Bike Pro Rider, and I invite you to my universe. A life of passion, of pushing the limits and of osmosis with nature.

It took several months of work to build this track and jumps. Me and my team are happy with the final result.

Little preparation before riding again
Little check before to ride again the crazy Open Loop.

Emilien Artaud the videographer needed several takes for the final clip. For me, it's still a real challenge for every run.

This video took a lot of commitment and creativity on my 29-inch enduro bike. I'm a very big rider at 169cm, which complicates the execution of tricks with big wheels.

 “ I'm a very big rider at 169cm, which complicates the execution of tricks with big wheels.”

I didn’t think that France was the origin of Hobbits, but if 169cm (5’6”) is considered really big there, then I guess it must be!

 Probably a «not» missing there.

 Maybe he is being sarcastic about his height? Being that short would make tricking big wheels harder...

 I'm 195 cm and while I love to ride my dirt jumper, even a semi-custom xl version feels ridiculously small. Not sure if I'd make out better tricking an enduro bike though... BUT... if Kelly McGarry can do the things we watched him do, no excuses!

 That was AMAZING! But I would bet that Guy could do even more amazing stuff on a bike with a smaller back wheel! Try it out 69ers are going to take over next, Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 @lognar: A back pack is a good idea, especially one that is also a back protector!

 Forgot the /S on the
“ I'm a very big rider at 169cm, which complicates the execution of tricks with big wheels.”

Great riding though - at this point though, I'll just dream about that kind of riding and live the more sedate stuff. As long as I'm out in the wild - it's what counts.

 169cm...? You're a legit rider dude, but I wouldn't call you buddy who is 6'4 at 265 is a big rider, just saying.

 yep, you were right the minute we saw a guy with a hydration backpack do a front flip on an enduro bike. Sign of the apocalypse !!!

 That hydration pack ruined everything... He should've known that two frame mounted water bottles would've completed this video!
