Vincent Pernin & Quentin Chanudet in Les Arcs: “La 8”

What an awesome time I had filming this DH MTB video project with Vincent Pernin and Quentin Chanudet, on their home trail.

The video has been made for Commencal, and Les Arcs Bike Park.

It was a real challenge to film because both riders had to be synchronised for all of the different camera angles, especially in the section where they choose a different line at 2″15.

It is undeniable how much I enjoyed filming, it made the editing more difficult, but I think that we’ve done a pretty good job! 😉

Vincent Pernin words:

“La 8″ is one of the trails of Les Arcs Bike Park, where I live now. This trail is one of the many options you have to get down to Bourg Saint Maurice. Not the easiest, but for sure not the hardest. It is just a very flowy trail, with fun features mixed with some aggressive DH turns, technical sections with roots & rocks.
I love to ride this trail with my buddy, Quentin Chanudet who is from the area. Quentin is a good fellow to ride with, and also a good DH WC rider. We love to ride close on this trail and overtake each other, every time we get the chance: pretty much like in this video.

J’ai pris vraiment du plaisir à filmer ce projet de Vtt de descente avec Vincent Pernin et Quentin Chanudet, sur un trail qui se situe juste en arrière de chez eux.
La vidéo à été rèalisée pour le compte de Commencal, et le Bike Park des Arcs.

Ce fut un réel challenge à tourner en raison de la difficulté de synchronisation entre les deux riders sur les différents plans, notamment dans la section où ils choisissent un different tracé à 2″15.

Bref un incontestable plaisir à filmer, plus difficile pour le montage mais je pense que le résultat est là! 😉

Les mots de Vincent Pernin:

“La 8” est un des trails du Bike Park des Arcs où j’habite à présent. Cette piste est une des nombreuses options pour descendre à Bourg Saint Maurice. Pas la plus facile, mais surtout pas la plus difficile. Elle est pleine de flow, c’est un parfait mélange de gros virages et de parties techniques avec des racines. C’est une piste où j’aime bien rouler avec mon pote Quentin Chanudet. Quentin est un bon collègue de ride et un sacré raceur de Coupe du Monde de DH. On adore rouler ce trail et se doubler dès que l’on peut: tout comme dans cette vidéo.

Eliott Lapotre visiting Whistler BC

It is a bit hard to work on Mountain Bike videos when we have so much snow outside, here in Val d’Isère. But here it is! A short edit I filmed with Eliott when he came to Canada last summer.

The trails are on Whistler Mountain Bike Park – Freight Train & No Joke.

Enjoy…

Road Trip to Kamloops

For those who don’t know, Charles Renaud-Roy, Eliott Lapotre, Mickaël Haxaire, Vincent Pernin and myself went on a Road Trip for 5 days around Kamloops last August to discover some Freeride trails, Sun Peaks, SilverStar and best of all and unplanned, we met Brad Stuart (Anthill Films – Follow Me) who has literally turned his backyard into the ultimate playground for mountain bikers !
