Conor recently became a household name after the 2016 edition of Red Bull Rampage where we saw the Kiwi Warrior show his grit and determination. After a rough week, his peers awarded him with the first annual Kelly McGarry Spirit award for his efforts and commitment to the event.

Putting the big bike down Conor shows us what he can do on a trail bike as he takes his Knolly Warden on a tour of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park and Coast Gravity Park. Great way for Conor to cap off a fantastic season!

Dumping with style.

You can tell a guy knows how to table when you see him in the lift line with tire marks on his shoulder.

  • + 7
 @FrozenTreads56: totally agree man...i never really noticed Conor until these last few edits, but clearly I was missing out...
  • + 12
 Style on little jumps yes. But a handless backflip on the buggest jump in whistler. Thats skills and guts
  • + 5
 Tougher than steal!

 One of the only guys giving Semenuk and Rdog a run for their money style-wise. Dude rips.

  • + 19
 HAHA let it out, you are safe here. Oh wait....
  • + 15

 Foxocchi u mean

 @mark3: According to an importer January they'll ship the 2017 models.
  • + 14
 His skills and style are no doubt indisputable, but does anyone else think that bike looks really small for him?
;
  • + 2
 I guess it's easier to trick
  • + 5
 I think knolly frames always look small because of how the seatpost goes.
  • + 4
 @simoroma: yea maybe he prefers smaller frames but @vonSpurling has a point too. Maybe a combo of the two. Anyways who cares. He's a slayer.
  • + 14
 That is not a table, more of an unturndown.
  • + 4
 you beat me to it.
  • + 8
 That cork flip on the oakley jump.
  • + 6
 PINKBIKE THANK YOU! with the snow on the ground all these videos have made me so jealous and ready to ride. keep the stoke going.

 What you need is an e-fatbike with boost spacing Smile

 www.pinkbike.com/news/pinkbike-poll-will-your-next-bike-be-downhill-or-all-mountain.html
Maybe they should of inserted this poll after the video of hom ripping his "Trailbike" on every terrain.PROOF!!!
  • + 6
 well i definitely want a warden now
  • + 2
 knolly winner for the best advertising .. I want ALL of their bikes!!
  • + 4
 Remember when he was filming parts of this at CGP end of September. Don't think many people recognized him. Awesome riding, and very cool and mellow dude!
  • + 4
 Like a champion left and right. Commercials for things are like, "omg I better get my life on track so I can do a worse version of that."
  • + 1
 I rode my 5" Rocky Mtn in Whistler some 7 years ago. I had a blast riding a "small" bike there. Would I have loved a freeride bike, yes, but a lift ticket cost enough.

Anyone have a way to talk your wife on going to Whistler for the family vacation when she doesn't ride, nether does my 8 month old son, yet.
  • + 2
 Yes. Say "wanna spend a few nights at the Four Seasons?"
  • + 1
 There is quite a lot to do in Whistler in addition to riding. My wife and I were there 3 times this past season spending a week each visit. Each time we rode park 2 days and did other activities the rest of the week.
  • + 2
 Yes say you got a photographer up there to take family pictures... worked for me ????
  • + 5
 What was the first trail?
  • + 2
 would like to know as well...
  • + 3
 soo sick been keeping eye on connor over past couple years since i found my love of knolly bikes no one tabletops as gnar as connor FACT
  • + 4
 To be honest, that was funking unbelievable!
  • + 3
 Love my Marz 350 and so stoked to see one. Looks like they are limited to.... nothing. Great edit and amazing riding.
  • + 1
 Was it the 350 NCR or Ti?
  • + 3
 Anyone that can click a solid flatty is good in my book. So much awesome.
  • + 1
 That was incredible. one of the best looking bikes out there as well though it's let down slightly by the ostentatious wheels.
  • + 3
 awesome edit!
  • + 2
 Holy Steeze. The corked backflip on the Oakley sender... :O
  • + 0
 Awesome video but another that encourages the idea that enduro bikes are all you need for dh, maybe for him but having the same bike doesn't make you fast.
  • + 2
 Connor would 100% roast you on his warden vs you on any dh bike.
  • + 1
 @allenfstar: of course he would, that's not what I said
  • + 1
 Give the Warden a ride and you'll change your mind ....
  • + 2
 amazing video. that slowmo backflip is beautiful
  • + 1
 The Warden looks a little cramped can anyone speak to that? Seriously considering one.
  • + 2
 I ride a medium , 5'7 . fits like a dream . I imagine Connor is on a large. The position of the seat tube makes it look smaller no matter what size the frame is. It rides like a champ, mini DH bike stuck in an XC body Wink
  • + 1
 @Proskiemt: Awesome thanks for the info! I'm about 6'1 so that sounds perfect.
  • + 2
 Yuuusss! Fellow Kiwi that rides a bike starting with K...
  • + 2
 Well that escalated quickly
  • + 2
 Slaying trail, looks like he was just having fun
  • + 2
 Wow, he looked fast climbing !
  • + 2
 Great video, I guess he doesn't need a dh rig, awesome riding
  • + 2
 Yup!
  • + 1
 Just call me Mr Table... I think this is "sick edit" defined.
  • + 2
 What a beast!
  • + 1
 this is pretty good i guess
  • + 1
 Incredibly smooth. 26" or 27.5" wheels?
  • + 1
 I would not matter for him. Warden is 27.5, the Podium is, still 26
  • + 1
 @Lagr1980: I'm thinking conner could rip on any kind of bike
  • + 1
 He flows those trails like an old glove, ENVE him.
  • + 0
 This is pretty much what I aspire to. Minus the tricks. Tricks are for chicks. Its all about the style
  • + 1
 Yeah sweet - ride and have fun
  • + 1
 omg love the bmx trick on the mtb that crankflip was awesome
  • + 1
 CONOR MCFARLANE VS. CONOR MCGREGOR
  • + 1
 Sum proper riding style ...
  • + 1
 McDavid
  • + 1
 Pure style.
  • + 1
 min 3:40 name trick?
  • + 2
 Mtb style unturndown. Like a turndown without twisting the bars with a high toptube that makes one foot go off the pedal.
  • + 1
 @feeblesmith: thanks mate it looks so rad
  • + 1
 what is this magic?
  • + 1
 is that a 2015 frame?
  • + 1
 they have made that color scheme since then , I imagine his is a '16.
