The guys from the UK's Wideopen went to stay with Roost DH in Malaga, Spain at the end of last year to blow off some steam after a long season. We're feeling a little jealous right now...

 00:50, did anyone thought it was miniature !! Big Grin the trail looked like ant's trail zoomed in Big Grin

 i think its the miniature effect, blurs out the backround and focuses the center of the shot to make a miniature like effect

 That was my favorite part of the vid. Really cool camera work.

 LUCKY!!! Actually I had a Mcbreakfast this morning. Followed by homemade porridge (oatmeal for youse on the other side of the pond) with apple and raisins which of course made me feel vindicated... by taking on more calories... It is snowing here though... he said to the Canadian.

Er nice vid.

 Went with the ROOST guys, damn good setup, know there trails, great villa, food, brilliant uploft with the trailers so no bike damage. My first trip abroad biking and loved it. Couldn't recommend enough. Here's my sketchy vid!!

 Went out on a holiday with Roost in October and I have to say the whole experience was brilliant. Mal & Ben were both really cool, they did uplifts as long as we wanted, worked on our bikes late into the night if required, fed us heaps of decent food whilst catering for the more picky eaters. The trails were excellent and it was all just so easy being ferried about everyday to a great new place to ride. I'd recommend it to anyone and I can't wait to go back again.

 Looks very nice!

Can anyone comment on Switchbacks vs. Roost DH?
Which should I go for if I can only take one trip this winter?
  • + 8
 Definitely Roost! Super chill guys, and you actually get free breakfast, dinner and beer. Great times, great trails, sick villa, Roost is for sure the place to go.

 I'd go with Switchbacks, they are a great bunch. Have only done their Summer AM week before but definitely going back soon. I highly recommend them, they really now what they are doing, really chilled and welcoming.

 +1 for Roost.

 Definitely RoostDH, overall set up is better. Their Villa is super pimp, they're top blokes who ride and build, and even spent a day fixing the (rare) water-damaged trails so we could ride them. They have now built several new trails of their own too, rather than just relying on existing stuff.

Best week riding i've had, hands down.

 Spain does not have many trail centres, it doesn't need them!
Carting and driving on the public highways is pretty much the same lol

 Forget about Roost or Switchbacks, www.thebikeshuttle.com is the best uplift company in Spain. They offer the best service you can get and even cheaper than others . (probably because they are locals) Just check this out www.pinkbike.com/video/293914
