"Who hasn't dreamt of shredding with their favorite rider?"

After round one in New Zealand with Kelly McGarry and round 2 in Cedric Gracia's home town, Andorra, we are in Châtel, one of the most popular MTB resort in Europe, to ride with a Freeride legend: Steve Romaniuk.

But this episode had a bad start : Alexis broke his collarbone during the mountain style training and then Steve crashed and separated his shoulder. We call this: pas de chance "no luck ..."

Fortunately, Steve is strong and after three days he was back on his bike and really motivated to film with us.

Sebastian Giraldi and the rest of the guys in the bike patrol, built us a new trail for this episode. With great flow, a 2 person wallride, doubles, drops and fresh berms everywhere we had everything we needed to make a great episode.

I hope you enjoy this episode and that it will make you wanna go ride.

I would like to say thanks again to Adidas Eyewear, Spank and Shimano France for their support in this adventure, and particularly Scott, Marzocchi and Châtel. Without them this project would have never been possible. All of these partners have the same vision and are as hungry as myself to develop the freeride scene all over the world.

Thanks to Ben Walker for the help and the good times during this week, Will Walker and John Gibson for the photos.

A big Thanks to you Steve for your kindness and the good times we had.

And Thank You Seb for this awesome new track.

 Was there and met Steve in Chatel. He's an awesome rider, and such a nice guy. Was telling me about what they're filming, how he designed the slopestyle course and stuff and took time out to have a photo with me. Thanks Steve, you're a legend.
