Szymon Godziek in the French Alps

Aug 24, 2012
by Ian Hylands  

Szymon Godziek took two bikes with him to Les 2 Alpes. He used his cr-mo hardtail to win the best trick contest in Chatel and later to reach 12th place in the slopestyle event at European Crankworx in Les 2 Alpes.


After the contest he decided to spend some time in Alps and he took his second bike, a full suspension freeride Dartmoor Wish. Szymon is a multi-talented gravity star with podiums in BMX, MTB dirt jump, slopestyle and even DH races. So he had a lot of fun riding down the high speed trails in the French Alps. His friend, photographer Piotr Staroń, went along for the ride to take some pictures.


After this freeride adventure Szymon packed his bikes and left for the USA where he reached 2nd place in the Claymore Challenge qualifiers.

 He is doing the no-foot-can on a downhill/enduro track of Les 2 Alpes.. that's why I found it impressive... the superman and the flip-barspin are more than impressive :p
