Remy Metailler // So Enduro [RAW]

I dragged Remy out of the bike park for a day and into Gargamel on Cougar Mountain; one of the gnarliest trails around Whistler. fb.com/StaneProductions @remymetailler on Instagram and twitter. www.facebook.com/remymetailler

 I would definitely qualify some of this terrain as DH. Why do these ppl insist on wearing half lids?
  • + 67
 It's hot when you climb?
  • + 40
 dont get it.. A crash with an half lid in this terrain could end horrible.. But it needs to be so enduro.. :/
  • + 37
 oh here is an idea, when you climb you take your full face off and put it on when you bomb down. But I guess that wouldn't be #enduro
  • + 7
 someguy101 that's enduro riders do, They use two helmets
  • + 55
 Thats what pisses me off with this because now nobody can do anything on a mid travel bike without being mocked with #enduro

Combining nice gear just makes the abuse worse, granted things like the enduro sash and the camelbak that goes on your hips are stupid and are definitely #enduro but to say anthing other than 100mm xc bikes or 200mm dh bikes is #enduro is just narrow minded.

I ride my local trails on a 140mm commie meta 55. I have a camelbak with bladder and everthing require to do the most basic repair just because if something goes wrong i have to walk the bike minimum 20km back to my car.

disciplines include XC,trail, AM FR and DH. All it is is the race version of AM while people who know nothing about biking start, buy a 6000 euro bike and all the relevant kit just to go along with the trend and call themselves enduro riders.

 Enduro Is crap like that was clearly DH you only need these pro bikes for doing like 20m drop at 100mph It's not your bike, it's how you use it!
  • + 27
 @Matt-hoad incorrect, enduro is not crap. That is all.

 Alright let's say it's less fun. Like I've done prop enduro in crete (Greece) it is fun but all that climbing makes you want to kill yourself
  • + 55
 It's all mountain biking. Simples.
  • + 8
 I want to see him do this on 'Ride don't slide.'.
  • + 8
 @someguy101 you can fall while climbing too
  • + 12
 If this was enduro why did he push his bike up the hill? This is clearly DH on a trail bike with trail gear. Great riding for sure but stupid dangerous without the right gear.
  • + 17
 it really bothers me also how people can make fun of enduro so much. in my opinion, its the hardest and most grueling type of riding out there. they combined xc and dh together and then made it last almos a week long. A person is gonna be alot more tired than xc or dh riders. i ride dh but looking at enduro i give alot of respect to those guys because they are doing the purest mtb you can possibly do.

 He is wearing sun glasses, not goggles. True enduro riders wear goggles. (enter sarcastic laugh HERE)

I also agree that the terrain is more DH like, I would anticipate a course like on the EWS circuit. All props to Remy for making it look easy!
  • + 2
 not really sure what is "enduro" about that trail. But I suppose no one wants to watch a video of someone pedaling or pushing a bike uphill. Trail looks wicked and Remy makes it look so easy. I love there is no music...just the sound of rock, tires and a spinning hub!!
  • + 7
 Chinaboy there's plenty of pedaling/flat/uphill sections between all these knarly spots; We just chose to leave them out for the sake of better entertainment.
  • + 6
 i think you are overreacting, the amount of protection to ride depends of the hability and confidence of the rider.
  • + 1
 Speak the truth
  • + 2
 in this particular video this is not "some people" this is Remy f*cking Metailler.
  • + 1
 I like wearing half lids much more than fullfaces. It feels so free! But at some point you have to think of that safety is more important. That would be an example!
  • + 19
 since when did pinkbike get taken over by concerned mothers?
  • + 1
 Get fitter then ans the climbs wont be as bad its better then pushing uphill! And just take it easy on the uphill and go for it on the decents
  • + 30
 That is crazy fast down a steep tech trail! We all know its twice as steep in person than on video, Well done!
  • + 16
 I don't know about anyone else but I think this video is so much better without music and just hearing the bike rail those corners wooooow!!! It makes me wanna go out and ride
  • + 13
 This trail qualifys as a downhill track more so than half the DH tracks on this site and in whistler bike park aha
  • + 9
 VOD! great watch! what camera and mic do you use, because this is some quality audio!!
  • + 1
 That's what i want to know as well. I'm guessing he mic'ed the bike with a lav mic and used a shotgun mic on the camera, and then combined both audio tracks in post.... i could be 100% wrong though, haha.
  • + 6
 The Climb is long and steep up fire road. Then you have another 20 mins of single track climbing. There is no way you would want to drag any more weight up that climb. The trail is crazy steep fall line, but has some long pedal sections.You definitely wouldn't want you full face.

 What canadaka said- surprised he got away unscathed after taking some of those lines like he did. Think well I know Id be hanging onto my back brake on most of that! As for helmet choice, thats just it a choice of which he made. Some folk value their chin more than others but he surely knows his limits!
  • + 7
 Love these non-music videos!
  • + 7
 Every Remy video should be raw. It's amazing.
  • + 3
 Wicked video, awesome riding. Lot of nae sayers up there, what on earth are you talking about? He rode well, he looked like he had fun, it deffo wasn't down hill, stop banging on!
  • + 2
 Couldn't agree more, I don't care what helmet he rides in, it's his choice and he certainly knows what he's doing on two wheels,some people need to be more chilled .
  • + 1
 Classic all mountain riding! A great video well put together!!! Thanks for sharing
  • + 1
 Sweet vid! Have a hard time to see what´s wrong using a fullface. A faceplant in that terrain would mean a significant trauma to the face and the skull. Fractures of facial bones could have serious complications. Might look more "free"on vid - might end the riding career irl.
  • + 4
 Thank you for not using silly amounts of slo-mo Vince. Another sick vid though!
  • + 3
 Awesome riding great video, don't care if it's enduro, dh or wearing a full face helmet or half helmet whatever....at least your outside riding your bike and having fun
  • + 1
 Every single one of you moaning about what he should be wearing on his head is narrow minded.

He's clearly a better rider than everyone commenting on the video (myself included), deal with it.
  • + 0
 Next on "Remy Metailler rides ____" we see him win a BMX contest, then head straight for a velodrome where he takes 1st by 2390423 laps. THEN, he grabs the nearest DH bike he can find and decides going down is too mellow so he rides UP the "top of the world" at Whistler. Stay tuned folks!!

 It would be cool if the people who shred the hardest and represent mountain biking didn't have to look like goons with spy kids goggles and goofy motorcycle helmets because of their sponsors. sick riding. Great edit. Facepalming style.
  • + 1
 What are you trying to say?I
  • + 1
 The guy shreds. Those helmets are dumb.
  • + 2
 WOW. who gives a crap? If Remy wants to wear a half shell he can wear a half shell calm down, just because you crash riding greens dosn't mean he has to wear a full face....
  • + 3
 I would be scared to do half that stuff on my big bike.
  • + 4
 He isent human
  • + 1
 All we can see is riding down(the)hill with an XC lid on.
Fair play, dude has some balls and buckets of skill to ride it like that.
  • + 3
 Awesome vid Remy and Vince!! Very well done and ridden!
  • + 2
 Oh stop it already guys, we all know it's AM, this ENDURO is just a popular word these days, simple as that.
  • + 1
 "So" more uncool then his previous edits, It´s like one badass guy, dressing up like a nerd and going mellow..No hate on #TrEnduro,just sayin..
  • + 1
 This guys a legend he's a lot less likely to fall hard on this terrain than most riders and I am sure he knows the risk just enjoy the video
  • + 1
 Remy must have a huge wear of wheelsets and tires.. hell he's torturing that bike..awesome!
  • + 1
 Couldn't help thinking the same thing. What's this guy's annual tire consumption...? Smile
  • + 1
 Strong riding! If you can't handle the "enduro" label, then maybe you're not tough enough for Enduro! Bro.
  • + 2
 It's not enduro...he doesn't even have a seat post dropper!

 That's some high quality riding regardless of what gear it is. Looks good to me.
