Our boy Fab Barel is at it again, coming this time from the Val d'Isere resort in the high Alps of southeastern France. Fab hits the dirt with DH star Brook Macdonald on the rocky trails of this stunning mountain terrain.
What's Brook like? What makes him tick? Like any mountain bike rider, he's inspired by the landscape, the mountain air, and the pure all-mountain experience offered here in the Savoie region. As he says in the film, the mountains here are absolutely massive, unlike anything in his home country of New Zealand.
And as always, the camaraderie of the mountain bike tribe plays a central role in Fab's filmmaking. Sharing a laugh, some salami, and a bottle of wine makes any day on the mountain even more special.
Brook's positive attitude and his newly acquired taste for altitude lasted for a few extra days ... long enough for him to notch his first UCI DH world cup victory, held at Val d'Isere just 5 days after this movie was shot!Fabien Barel Presents Part 1 - Cam ZinkFabien Barel Presents Part 2 - Cedric Gracia Fabien Barel Presents Part 3 - Andreu Lacondeguy
