Video: The Jank Files is Back with Long Stages, Loam Laps & Jesse Melamed Claiming the Top Spot

by Rocky Mountain  

After a short break, Andréane Lanthier Nadeau, Rémi Gauvin, and Jesse Melamed got back after it in the mountains that straddle the border between Austria and Slovenia. The trio tracked down some loam before getting into a little bit of pit lane shenanigans and embarking on some of the roughest and rowdiest stages on the circuit. The trails were long and unrelenting and the weather was hot, but the Rocky Mountain Race Face Team kept cool and collected, taking second in the team overall with Jesse taking the big W.

 I would buy a Rocky Mountain because of Jesse. Dude is awesome to watch and he seems like a down to earth good dude. I guess racers do sell bikes…

 These guys are awesome. I bumped into them at YVR on their way to Scotland and they are really mellow, friendly and you can see the tight bond between them. Ab awesome "family". Wishing them all of the very best of success and bring home the overall Jesse.

 Love the Jank Files series, so good! Jesse/Remi, what coffee are you bringing/brewing?! Buying local at the stops or bringing it from home? You pulling shots of espresso on the road with a forge or hitting the ol dripper? The coffee nerds need more details. Cheers!

 I found 2 different Natural Anaerobic's in Scotland and in Austria that are killer! And always bringing the Counterpart Coffee from home. The forge gets used on the daily!
