    Summer greetings from the Alps

    I felt like sharing this video I found in the best thread in the MTB World (clicky) as it so beautifully shows why we Alp dwellers desperately wait for the 2-3 months each year this stuff is possible... I'm sure you'll enjoy what Colin and his riders made for us.

    Ciao from Italy!

    I have no idea I am not related to this Video in any way, i just found it in the abovementioned thread and felt like sharing it with our MTB brothers and sisters on the other side of the big pond.
    Myself I am living and riding much closer to your place, just south of you to be precise (Piedmont/Turin area).

    It’s a good vid but….

    Why are they skidding the rear wheel around most every corner?

    Don’t they know how to ride?
    next time

    [QUOTE=spazzy] Might as well sell your bikes, E-riding is much more productive.
