In the 3rd episode of season 2, when we catch up with Fab he's in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. He's with Tobias Woggon, and apparently it's been a long day as the darkness has fallen and the only light in the farmhouse where they stay is by headlamp. Why is is the place so primitive? As you'll see, they're riding high alpine trails that are only accessible by gondola, hike, and/or helicopter. It's extremely remote in these high mountains, and the guys are absolutely shredding the trails.


Join the guys and see what it looks like in the high Swiss alps. The experience is complete with sleeping in an empty farmhouse and having the local sausage for dinner, almost in total darkness. Fab and Tobias used all the sunshine on the trails so there's none left at dinnertime!


Don't miss this one and experience the alpine adventure ...

 29ers indeed look a bit odd on trails like this. But as long as it's fun... anything goes.
