Video: Fabien Cousinié Hunts for Gaps on Squamish's Classic Trails

Apr 21, 2022 at 8:24
by UR Team  




Half Nelson, Full Nelson, Hybrid, those are some easy classic trails in Squamish that everyone can ride, they seem a little tame when you compare them to some other super technical trails that Squamish is known for but with a little bit of creativity and a lot of commitment they can become challenging and fun.

Watch Fabien " Couscous" Cousinié going flat out on those trails where he finds new lines, maximizing every inch of traction from his tires and letting the bike dance!

You can find these trails on Trailforks here:

bigquotesI moved to Squamish 3 years ago and I still haven't ridden all the trails! I'm amazed by the variety of trails out there from the crazy technical ones to the new secret loamer’s popping up everywhere. You can ride a new trail everyday for months which is really showing the Canadian love and dedication to the trails. As a Frenchman growing up our riding culture was a little different. It was more like finding a track close to you and riding it as often and as fast as possible. With this edit I wanted to do something similar, picking some easy classic trails and riding them as fast and making them as much fun as possible.Fabien Cousinié

 kind of sad he used the older couple as a way to say "look at how much faster I am" compared to these people who are just enjoying the trail at their own speed. or am I overthinking it?

 I smiled all the way through that. Looks like he was having fun with some deliberate overstyling. Love that take on the scandi at the end.. I'll give it a whirl tomorrow. Gonna watch that again...
