Pros: Uh we have a race soon
Phil: Hold my mustache
(May 30, 2019 at 7:47)
right out the gate he establishes dominance over top dh, enduro, and up and coming youth riders.
(May 30, 2019 at 11:11)
Jeff Kendall-Weed posted a segment riding with him last week (I think it was last week?). Phil is a riot, an awesome rider, and seems to be really down to earth dude. I'm glad we're seeing more of him these days...
(May 30, 2019 at 12:17)
Phil Kmetz is responsible for my realisation that YouTuber/vlogger doesn't just mean attention seeking dick-head.
(May 30, 2019 at 15:05)
: couldn’t agree more. I admit when I first came across Phil I already had my mind made up about him, especially with how goofy he is...but wow was I wrong. Seems like an all around salt of the earth guy who rips.
(May 30, 2019 at 16:08)
: who made you think that was ever the case?
(May 30, 2019 at 16:41)
: I dunno. I guess I was just late to catch on to it.
(May 30, 2019 at 20:15)
Phil has provided, the gnarlest of sends in the video, top shelf sir, shred on,!!
(May 30, 2019 at 22:49)
Trail Peek guys are rippers also.
(May 31, 2019 at 2:10)
Skills with Phil - great vids and helped my sorry ass a lot.
Must revisit them soon and reassess my abilities ))
That and Yoan's laugh and life attitude )))
(May 31, 2019 at 6:39)
With Phil, it's "What You See is What You Get". He is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth humans you will meet, and an absolute ripper on any sort of bike. We are stoked to have him in the GT family!
(3 days ago)
trying to ask this as polite as possible but why does he wear that ugly fucking mustache
(3 days ago)
: thats totally subjective, dude
(May 30, 2019 at 7:35)
Pros: Huge otb, hits a tree, jumps up before he even hits the ground. "I'm all good. Pretty scary."
Me: Pushing up the hill, hits shin on pedal, cries for three days.
(May 30, 2019 at 14:18)
+ Some broken bone
(May 30, 2019 at 16:29)
You just made me spew half a Corona out of my nose, dude!
(May 30, 2019 at 20:37)
: atleast it was just water
(May 30, 2019 at 22:27)
: Under-rated comment. Have an upvote.
(May 30, 2019 at 7:15)
Yoann's laugh embodies everything that's great about amount biking This video is MTB
(May 30, 2019 at 7:12)
Unbelievable riding! Phil is a beast!
(May 30, 2019 at 7:33)
Absolute beast. And one of my favorite YouTubers too!
(May 30, 2019 at 7:31)
Quote of the summer "the couple that case together, stay together"
(May 30, 2019 at 7:12)
Big time Skill with Phil getting after it
(May 30, 2019 at 8:35)
It's cool to see him stacked up against some pros and established riders. I knew he had the skills to pay Phil's bills, but its crazy to see him out-huck the big dogs.
(May 30, 2019 at 8:45)
: lesser known fact: Phil comes from a strong background of dh racing and has gotten like 5th at US dh nats. And beat Dakota Norton at collegiate nats multiple times. He has plenty of skill and can hang with those big dogs for sure
(May 30, 2019 at 9:04)
: Looks like he also qualified and finished 72nd at Windham WCDH in 2015. Not too shabby!
(May 30, 2019 at 14:55)
: there is a podcast out there where Phil did a huck in the national that made Aaron Gwin said "that was the ballsiest move I've ever seen."
(May 30, 2019 at 15:51)
: He was actually the 8th fastest through split 2 and 9th fastest in the speed trap before washing out in the last corner. Phil be phast.
Stoked for ya on this one
(May 30, 2019 at 18:41)
: Do you know which podcast? I've been looking for good mtb podcasts.
(May 30, 2019 at 21:27)
(May 30, 2019 at 23:21)
: oh wow didn't look at the details. Badass.
(May 30, 2019 at 10:08)
Phil is really one of the only youtubers that can actually ride a bike. Nice to see him getting exposure. Well deserved.
(May 30, 2019 at 12:19)
Well, Cathro too...
(May 30, 2019 at 13:33)
Jeff Kendall-Weed is also REALLY good
(May 30, 2019 at 15:01)
Was a little drunk when I posted op....
JKW is the real deal for sure.
I like cathrovision, but not in the same league from the little I’ve seen...could be wrong. But fair point either way as I wouldn’t put Cathro in the bucket of YT people I was referring to!
(May 30, 2019 at 15:23)
Phil Shreds and he's one of my favorite content creators.
He's not the only one though.
My list of YouTube Shredders:
Dane and Zach from the channel trail peek deserve more views -- they rip.
Love all the content those guys put out and they all ride ridiculously fast.
I watch a lot of other content creators who aren't as shreddy but their content is appealing to me in other ways.
(May 30, 2019 at 16:27)
: Cathro was a pro world cup dh racer. Apparently still wins at elite level in his country.
(May 30, 2019 at 18:35)
: Ben has actually had an 8th at a Fort William world cup. He's pretty rapid.
(May 30, 2019 at 23:22)
: Cathro is still way faster than anyone else in the convo... if Phil still raced he'd probably be up there. Doubt any other YouTuber is qualifying for a WCDH.
(May 30, 2019 at 23:59)
: oh damn - had no idea. Well thanks for enlightening me.
(May 31, 2019 at 1:57)
: in a skinsuit! Presumably one that had to be specially tailored to his 6'7" frame.
(May 30, 2019 at 8:03)
Grohl's got skills.
(May 30, 2019 at 22:57)
That. I really don't know how he manages touring with the band and ripping that hard. Which part is done in his free time?
(May 31, 2019 at 0:24)
the best the best the best the best of you...tube
(May 30, 2019 at 8:22)
Yoann and Phil taught me that the longer your hair, the more fun you have on a mountain bike.
(May 30, 2019 at 8:27)
I had no idea Weird Al Yankovic was such a shredder
(May 30, 2019 at 7:11)
This video makes me very happy.
(May 30, 2019 at 7:19)
That wreck was gnarly!
(May 30, 2019 at 11:02)
So now we know that Yoann is one of the portrait video offenders.......:-)
(May 30, 2019 at 14:17)
Is Lucas Cruz also showing us what will be the new paintjob on TLD D3 helmets?
Great vid tho...but camera doesn't show how hard that gap on Schleyer actually is.
(May 30, 2019 at 13:42)
So impressed with Phil's improvement. Between this and the Douthie gap he posted on his IG last week, it's clear he's been putting in work on the jumps and he's legit as they come.
(May 30, 2019 at 16:30)
Phil was a pretty fast racer and even qualified for a world cup.
(May 30, 2019 at 7:24)
Going in a month, can't wait, all these Whistler videos are not helping...
(May 30, 2019 at 22:28)
If there was a crowd of people laughing, you would spot Yoann with 100% accuracy.
(May 30, 2019 at 10:22)
just as long as you carry a sheet tonne of speede
(May 30, 2019 at 14:21)
I'm sure the video doesn't do any of this justice. Those gaps looked RIDICULOUS!
(May 30, 2019 at 21:35)
To be young again. I'm early 40's and in good shape. If I crashed like that, I'd be out of commission for 6 months+.
(May 30, 2019 at 19:56)
so sick to see a local keene shredder showing up some top tier riders! keep up the good work Phil and uhhhh how many "bike lengths was that first hit
(May 30, 2019 at 8:20)
I'd rather have one of the new trail bikes than the old 26inch dh bikes that were been hucked down schlayer back in the day.
(May 30, 2019 at 8:17)
Hi chi gap is so fucking hard.
(May 30, 2019 at 7:45)
So reminds me of snowboarding. Looking for lines!
(May 30, 2019 at 9:19)
Sick video. Phil is a beast
(May 30, 2019 at 9:20)
Dude, Phil! Way to lay it down bro, you've come so far man, good on ya!
(May 30, 2019 at 14:54)
Phil is such a great guy. He is a great ambassador for any brand.
(May 30, 2019 at 9:22)
More of this!
(May 30, 2019 at 15:45)
skills with phil just gained a new wave of subs off this video lmao
(May 30, 2019 at 23:45)
so glad to see Phil on PB!
(May 31, 2019 at 3:57)
Such precious videos those WBP gaps, jumps, humbled videos!!!
(May 30, 2019 at 21:28)
Is that a Commencal Meta Sram Edition in there?
(May 30, 2019 at 12:13)
Damn! Turns out Phil really does have skillz.
(May 30, 2019 at 14:30)
I'm really impressed. And really depressed.
(May 30, 2019 at 13:15)
Big props to Phil guys YouTube channel got me back into trail riding!!
(May 30, 2019 at 16:12)
DJ pro line drop... that's a fun one.
(May 30, 2019 at 8:13)
(May 30, 2019 at 10:23)
TOO MUCH HAIR
(May 30, 2019 at 13:13)
