_41 Visiting Ross In Chatel Day 1

14/06/14

On the way back from Grenoble to London it was cheapest to get a flight from Geneva so I decided to go and visit Ross who lives in Chatel who I only get to see about once a year.

To say I was lucky, might be an understatement as since I was there it seems to have rained all summer and they had just built a whole load of new trails for this season so I basically got to ride some incredible newly built trails that had barely been ridden and had zero braking bumps in them and to quote Ross (who has ridden here for the past ten seasons or more) ‘were the best condition they have ever been in!’. It is such a long time since I have ridden bike park trails and hit some massive berms and big jumps so it felt amazing to have a go at them on Ross’ big DH bike.

I was riding pretty tame I would say but about halfway through the day I suddenly realised how much faster you could hit stuff on a downhill bike then it got fun!
