Hi guys!

Just want to check with Dutch guys how is DH/Enduro life in The Netherlands? Im moving from Russia (Moscow) to Amsterdam area for at least one year. I know Im not moving to Austria or Canada ( The area arround Moscow is also flat like a table). I used to do some Mini-micro DH + trail riding on weekends and 1 time a year holidays in Morzine. I have GT Force and about to have a new DH or Enduro bike soon. What should I expect? Or better to get some nice looking lycra pants and a hardtail with V-brakes?

Thank You in advance for your feedback

There are no dh tracks in Holland.
Its too flat. Most people go to germany but from Amsterdam Its like à 4 hour drive.i live in THE east of Holland so Its only à two hour drive. There are à lot of xc trails but i Don't do spandex , I'm riding à 6" FS all mountainbike in Holland and à 7 or 8" bike in gemany(Bikepark Willingen/Winterberg).

True, the only trails you'll find in the netherlans are xc trails, but what you wear is entirely up to you of course Smile Luckily Winterberg and Willingen are quite close by. n summer I go there quite regularly. I live in Haarlem (near Amsterdam) and it is a 4 hour drive to Winterberg.

Cheers
