"Every winter I look forward to breathing in the cold winter air and flying fast down the mountain"
With more than half a million followers on social media, Rémy Métailler is an internet mountain biking star! Each of his videos has been viewed tens of thousands of times. The "trail previews" on his YouTube channel are a big hit and have become his trademark: alone or with another rider, he offers advice and comments on his line, jumps and moves, while riding full tilt down steep slopes. Nobody ever thought of doing it before he did! It's an innovative concept and has inspired amateur riders all over the world.
Canadian by adoption
But Rémy Métailler isn't just a (super) content producer. He's also, and above all, a mountain biker of pure talent, recognized by all his colleagues. A professional athlete who trains every day to push his limits to the max. Further, higher, faster. He shreds slopes as he embraces life – with passion.
A business school graduate, the Nice native put down his roots (and all his cycling gear) in Squamish on the west coast of Canada in 2013. The town lies just under 60 kilometers south of Whistler. In summer, this famous ski resort becomes a mountain biking mecca and hosts the legendary Crankworx stage. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park, one of the best in the world, is the favorite playground of the Frenchman in his search for thrilling rides.
An all-terrain athlete
Versatile and unconventional, Rémy Métailler excels in enduro – a mix of cross-country and freeride – his favorite discipline. He also likes taking in the sights and showing them to us on the ultra-gnarly lines of urban downhill tracks, where the slightest wrong move will have an immediate effect! A freerider at heart, he's also taken part in several editions of the Red Bull Rampage which brings together the crème de la crème of slopestyle mountain biking. Whether on the streets or out in nature, this mountain biker is at ease everywhere!
Rémy joined the Julbo family in 2020. Equipped with light and technical sunglasses offering a wide field of vision, he's able to focus on the perfect line. A delight for the eyes!
