    Extremely well done. I still don't want to ride a hard tail, but really well filmed and edited. Beautiful colors and great action. Bravo.

    i broke my dual susp bike and should ride an old hardtail. First month was pretty painful, but now i find this type of bike very fun to ride. Good video, btw ) Thank you, post more!

    Awesome video. I was out there some months ago, and was looking for combo trails like that. Where can I access them from?

    Looked too me like all the riding was on a mountain, except the part that was in the valley between the mountains. One of those dudes jumped a rock, that makes it all mountain.

    it's between chamonix and geneva, on the mountain called "the môle".
    a lot of easy trails like this one start there, but you must ride uphill before downhill. a nice place to start the seasons as these slope are the first to be unsnowed and last to be snowed (others spots of the region are totally unpracticable from ending of october to early of may).

    if you come back here during this year just let me a pm

    On a mountain does not make it all mountain. No offense to the OP, but the trail is not a real AM Trail.

    allmountain doesn't mean only technical trail... here are presented some easy trails that's right, but the riding is certainly not cross-country riding. as the ground is really rocky on this spot, we have choose to filmed easy trails to keep some "flow feeling", but when we ride with the france xc team, they don't call these trail xc trails

    XC Trails in US the where I am have rocks, gravel, roots, mud, drops, everything you showed in the video. Watched it with a XC racing friend, we both agreed that trail to our definition is not AM. Atleast in the US it is not.

    Says the guy that spends more time posting on MTBR than any member ever.

    Just calling it how I see it. Its a nice vid of XC riding in my opinion. Maybe AM is different in his country, but those are well groomed XC trails where I live.

    You're a tool! If you don't like it let it go and leave the thread. I'm in "your" country and consider that to be plenty "all mountain".

    I'll bet that I ride at least 10 times as much as your 8 miles a week , and my riding is not confined exclusively to bike paths .

    don't fight each other for a difference of point of view!
    I compete into dh race, xc race, enduro race and marathon downhill, and my last opinion is: if your xc trail looks like this one, you are a very lucky man and yes, i'm jealous!

    How are those Suntour forks? I saw some talk about them last year, somewhat mixed, but they're CHEAP. Wonder how well they compare to higher end stuff in the same class.
