Riding any new area is full of surprises, so the Trail Ninja series gives you the heads-up on how to dodge the pain and max the rewards of new trail-riding spots. In this episode pro photographer and all-round good egg Dan Milner escapes winter and heads to southern Spain to see what secrets can be discovered in the Sierra Espuña, a lesser-known mountain bike paradise only an hour inland from the Costa Blanca's boozy night clubs.
He finds tech trails and big climbs all bathed in warm sunshine. He also makes a few new friends along the way. Fast, loose riding and questionable sexual antics follow.
