Remy Metailler Talks About Fear and Biking

Just as it does in many sports, fear plays a fairly large role in mountain biking. We see athletes riding trails or doing tricks and think to ourselves "that's so scary, I could never do that." But fear, like many obstacles, is a mental game. Pro mountain biker Remy Metailler walks us through how he manages fear. Metailler doesn't pretend to be superhuman, but rather provides some tips on how he manages fear when sending those crazy rock slabs. Some of his tips include walking the line and analyzing it as well as making sure your bike is 100% dialed. While we're stoked to see pros like Metailler opening up the conversation about fear, we're pretty sure we'd still be too scared to ride half the stuff he does. 

Great advise to newbies who are starting to do trail biking or even on starting to ride a bike on a pavement. If you feel that you can’t do it, it doesn’t mean that your scared to do it but you are just afraid of what might actually happen if you are not ready to do it. A great advise as well to focus on what you are doing and avoid being distracted or overthink of what you are going to do. Pretty much like think before you click or post something on social media. Thank you for sharing you thoughts and it really will help boost moral as well.

If you're one of those people who tunes their bike more in the winter than their skis (the chain was just looking a little dry, right?) this video's for you. Those lucky enough to call the Northwest home, like Oliver Parish, are here to help us live vicariously through them. Although the

In the words of Jesse Melamed: “The season doesn’t start til June!” Maybe that’s why we’ve been seeing more of him in British Columbia’s bottomless pow than out on his bike – after all the man needed some rest after his domination of the 2020 EWS season. Well, we’re glad he’s finally decided to throw a leg back over the saddle and join his friends on the Rocky Mountain enduro squad for some off-season riding in the woods around home. It never gets old watching him chase Andreane Lanthier

Magical Mountain Biking in Turkey

If the Disney movie and our film had a love child, it would be this edit. Seriously, though. Kilian Bron and Commencal Bikes abseloutely killed it on this one. Not only do they capture some pretty unbelievable riding, but they've also managed to highlight the beauty of this Middle Eastern haven. Between the excellent terrain and the stunning visuals Turkey has to offer, we're not even sure how a place like this is even allowed to exist. Oh, and did we mention how cool the hot air balloons
