Although for most people, ski season is in the front of our minds during winter, there's a small population that still spends their days thinking of berms, tabletops, and some good old fashioned brown pow. 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.

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
