 Best Whistler video of 2015.

 Wait for Remy...
  • + 49
 Remy looks faster. I'm sure he isn't, but Troy is so smooth and his bike is so quiet, it makes him seem slower. Remy will be in the Crankworx video contest, so expect some madness from him
  • + 7
 Remy beat troy in the recent Wednesday races (i dunno what they're called) didn't he? Although overall Troy has got to be quicker as a top 10 even 5 dh racer
  • + 50
 The Phat Wednesday races take place on regular trails in the bike park. Remy lives in Whistler, rides the park practically every day, and knows every line on the mountain. Brosnan is just on another level.

 Remy should be in the WC aswell
  • + 55
 Remy is an amazingly talented and stylish rider, but he isn't even in the same realm as Troy. Ok, he beat Troy in a phat Wednesday race on home trails. Something tells me Troy was there for the fun of it. Believe this: if Remy could hand it to the top world cup guys he'd be doing that, not making bike park edits for pinkbike.
  • + 15
 The fact this is even a conversation topic blows me away, even though Remy beat Troy on a phat wednesday he's ridden a couple hundred time he still didn't win the race he was 4th just because he posts a go pro video taking a "conservative" run on the internet doesn't even mean he's the fastest guy in whistler...
  • + 13
 His conservative run was just him giving an excuse why he didn't win. BC cup was in whistler last week-end.. why didn't he enter? I guess he didn't want his ass handed to him....

 Who cares?! They are both fun to watch and BOTH are faster than you "Dick-lickers."
That's a funny term.


^Dick lickers^
  • + 17
 The real dick lickers are the ones talking shit on the internet instead of riding their bikes and aspiring to one day be half as talented and skilled as Troy or Remy
  • + 10
 Also I heard Troy had only been in town for like a day before that race. Nothing against Remy but there's a massive difference between being fast and looking fast. Seems like the fastest riders usually look like they're trying the least.

 Remy beat Troy at Leogang as well didn't he? Troy was faster but I think they're both at a similar level right now.
  • + 17
 @antigit Remi Thirion beat Troy not Remy Metailler.
  • + 4
 Aussie represent! Go Troy!!!
  • + 1
 Some of the dick-lickers troll of the internet actually ride every day.. probably even more often then you.... so who cares. AND you don't even know why we talk shit about Remy....
  • - 2
 rigodon777, I dont even think YOU know why you shit talk Remy, he is a hard working athlete who is seeing good success in the media and his local racing scene, you are just a fed up prick behind a keyboard, do you personally know him? did he take your lunch money as a kid?
  • + 10
 HAHAHAHAHA!! I've known Remy for 3 years now... I'll leave it there. I ride wihistler with the guy. Yes he's faster then me. But he has a shitty attitude about not winning. AND he talks shit about his own sponsor. So yeah. Fuck off if you don't even know the real story.
  • + 2
 WHOOPS sorry team. Thought there was a bit of undue hate against Thirion!
  • + 3
 Man I wish I had half the talent of Troy, then I'de be Remy I guess. Jk both are great
  • + 1
 Thats what he said... And then Remy stroked.
  • + 65
 Mmmmh... yip you can see the difference between pro park riders shooting super slo mo vid vs legit DH Rider.
  • + 3
 Definitely. It's amazing to see the trails ridden and filmed like they were meant to be
  • + 3
 I saw a different perspective of whistler iv'e never seen before. Nice that its not all whips down a line.
  • + 37
 oooh the last copter shot of crabapple hits. fuck this year Im going to hit crabapple hits ill probably die
  • + 45
 i know that's just a talk, but don't do that with this attitude. i did, and now i'm on wheelchair. sorry for being so serious, this time i've got my reasons
  • + 11
 God, the lack of answers is killing me. It's like the awkward silence when someone says "Yeah, about that..." after a Yo Momma joke.
Hope you're not on those wheelz forever man. And if you are, make the best of it!
Yeah, you're totally right, being reckless is stupid. It can help when you're starting out and scared to hit a 1ft drop, but this is Crabapples...
There's a fine line between recklessness and stupidity.
  • + 4
 Hey if you ride crab apple hits, dont second judge your speed. Faster is better. I road that for my first time with Travis Pastrana and a few Mexican red bull riders. I was following a red bull guy and I reall thought I was good on speed. Until I saw the rider send it like hell, and he landed it perfectly. SO DONT BRAKE MUCH! And dont break much! Good luck
  • + 4
 Don't break at all last year I hit them and had to crank 3 hard cranks into the 3 one which is the first big one after the 2 smaller set up jumps but after that just no brakes at all and 8 preload hard off jumps so I can hit meany jumps slower than most coming off a dirt jump BMX background...it was wet rainy and riding much slower than dry though. I would jump them with your fingers on the bars don't even hover the break with index finger if your scared and first time around one little panick pump of the break right before you send it could be catastrophic regardless the fact there tables the first big one has a decently steep lip sends you much higher than you would expect especially if you been hitting a line all day little speed goes a long way with a little extra incline. So epic though when you clean them so much hang time yhhheeeeewwwwww!!!!! LOVE IT!!!
  • + 5
 Just follow somebody in that knows the speed and you'll be fine..
  • + 2
 Just watch out for wind. That's the biggest deal that can offer a sketchy situation. Other than that, if you don't overshoot the second (I like to brake into it, otherwise I go to flat), just cruise into 3rd and it just sends you real nice. #4 and #5 are a walk in a park then. I don't really pop off lips, going much faster into jumps than my friends, but still if it's dry and I pedal into #3, it's easy to overshoot it FAR. 3 strong pedal strokes in the dry conditions could easily mean huck to flat. In the rain it's obviously different, but it should still be comfortable without pedalling, if you do the #2 setup jump clean.

 NIce DH jammies.

 If only mind spark cinema and the coastal crew would collab on a film... Sick stuff!

 If you watched the first in the know with Curtice and Dylan. It was filmed by mind spark and the coastal crew where in it so it might be what you are looking for m8
  • + 1
 @dirtjunper Dylan helped film this one, so technically this is also what @radman13 was looking for
  • + 7
 Im talking about a full feature film like a movie

 The kid can ride, great skills. We were lucky enough to meet him last year in Leogang , very humble and all around nice guy. He's a great ambassador for the sport.
  • + 13
 On thing I love about him is that he never seems disappointed. He always seems happy and respectful of the effort of his and of the others contestants Smile
  • + 9
 I have never seen him without a smile on his face! says a lot about his character I think
  • + 14
 You know he's fast when you are questioning whether the video is sped up the whole time you're watching it!
  • + 2
 I know!

My butt puckered up at 0:38. So fast...

 Brilliant video. The sound of him shredding is the perfect soundtrack. Probably my favourite downhill rider in the World right now!

 Next level riding, check.... amazing scenery, check... subtly matching your kit with the frame of your bike, I can dig it! Awesome edit
