For a dude so damn fast on seemingly any terrain, for him not to have ridden B.C. seemed unimaginable!
Having never made it further west than Quebec, Commencal thought it would be wise to cure this injustice by treating Amaury, fresh off his 2nd place finish in the World Cup overall, by shipping him off to B.C. Feeling ‘fresh’ after a week in Whistler with his crew, Steel City Media and co dragged him out of Garf’s one morning and into the truck. Destination Retallack. A nine hour journey littered with MTB history and ever changing scenery blew his mind (and nearly his ankle whilst messing around on the ferry), before arriving at the infamous lodge, nestled deep in the heart of the Kootenays.
