We have been on a photoshoot roadtrip for ION Bike and Canyon in Switzerland and France. On our first stop in St. Moritz we found this new track which was not even finished yet. But we took the chance to rock it and take some of the first shots on it. Unfortunately I forgot to change my bike set up from superlight XC rims and tires to my Enduro set up. I had also way too low tire pressure when i hit this berm at full speed. So my tire slipped of the rim and i crashed. Luckily the rim did not get demaged so I changed the tube, puped it up properly and at last for the rest of the week without any problems. 
Here a slideshow with all other pics Markus Greber took on this Trip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE_8FuKkvOM&list=PLVtfi70OYuQT4KnCfV3dYaHPJddayclP0&index=14&feature=plcp

 Dunford... Dunford... Dunford... It is obvious that this so called incident is the work of Swiss secret agents sent by the government to punish those who ride their bicycles on mountain paths meant for nordic walkers. Haven't you read that article?

 nothing wrong with googles and half lids. That's just your opinion Man! Poor guy that sucks. He was probably running to low tire pressure for the grip, but it didn't pay off.
