You may associate the Absalon name more with the Olympic-gold-medal-winning cross country prowess of Julien, but Remy is is equally successful, albeit in the slightly less popular niche of downhill marathon.

Remy is an eight-time Megavalanche winner (although half of these came on the Reunion Island) and four-time winner of the European DH marathon cup. He's now carving further success in the EWS where he finished 13th overall last year.

In this video he takes us back to his home town trails in the Les Voges mountain range in North East France and they look absolutely prime.
