In a sea of competitive race runs and web video saturation, one act of riding rose to the top as the most spectacular of 2013. The brand new track, created for the best mountain bike racers in the world, put many on their heads.

The rutted, steep, gnarly, physical Andorra DH course looked like B-Line as Remi put it all together during his race run. His pre-race suspension testing with that crazy BOS contraption strapped to his bike just added to the radness of it all, too.
Here's to Remi Thirion and his Shreddy Award for the 2013 Ride of the Year. YEW!
