Must Watch: Amaury Pierron is “The Pilot”

Must Watch: Amaury Pierron is "The Pilot"

Amaury Pierron is taking a deep dive into his 2022 World Cup-winning season in a new feature-length documentary, The Pilot.

Winning the World Cup overall title is the ultimate prize in downhill mountain biking. It requires consistency, speed, dedication and heaps of luck. A single season title can make a rider’s career.

After 2022, Amaury Pierron has two World Cup overall titles. That is an incredible feat and puts the French rider in rare company. But, as good a rider as Pierron is, winning the second title was no easy feat. The Commencal racer faced injury, the delay and uncertainty of cancelled races, and, of course, incredible competition.

Dive in to The Pilot, a fantastic full-length feature by Sleeper Co., and join in the wild ride.

What’s Commencal saying about Pierron and The Pilot?

Two World Cup Downhill Championship titles with a space of four long years between them, connected by the resilience of one man. “The Pilot” is a story about Amaury Pierron.

From his explosion onto the scene at the highest level and his journey through rehabilitation from bad injuries, to his recovery in 2021 and his return to racing after nearly two years off… Discover the story of Amaury and the road he travelled to win the World Cup DH overall for a second time and make 2022 his best season yet.

With “The Pilot” by the Sleeper Collective team, you’ll be riding alongside the best (pilot) in the world – Amaury Pierron.

“I’ve always loved watching athlete docuseries and always thought it would be great to do one some day. It was when Sleeper Collective were filming me on the DH World Cups last year that we decided to go for a longer format. It became an important project for myself, Sleeper Collective and COMMENCAL. It was cool to have the Premiere at the cinema in Andorra, where I live and train all year round. Can’t wait for you see that too!” – Amaury Pierron.
