Finn Iles decided to spend the break between World Cups in Morzine, France. He goes there for a couple of weeks every year and really enjoys riding downhill and enduro and the trails and tracks in Portes du Soleil.

A few days after Crankworx Festival Finn and Kuba decided to go to Morzine and film the new short video. The first day of shooting was really hard due to bad weather. The pissing rain and cold didn't stop them filming the first part of the film on Le Pleney side.

Day two was completely different as the weather changed 180 degrees. It was the bluebird sky and over 20 degrees of celcius. They decided to go to SuperMorzine and spent the whole day there.

bigquotesI think Morzine is definitely one of the best places to go between the races, it's a really good place to ride, because there are so many options to choose from, so many different track variations so you never get bored of what you're doing. - Finn Iles

bigquotesFilming with Finn was a really good experience for me. He's a leader of World Cup in Junior category and it was a big pleasure to met him again and spent with him a couple of days in such a good place as Les Gets and Morzine. - Kuba Gzela

 Awesome for Canada to have a top level junior. Finn has a old school free spirit that I hope dominates the sport one day. With peaty leaving we need an alternative spirited champ to counter act the UCI's straight edge authority.

 In order for him to continue developing, we need to give him constructive criticism. Ok, here goes. . . . . . . . . . . . yellow sucks. . . that's all I got

 Maybe once he starts making a scene at the elite level they (UCI aka the devil) will be convinced to bring a world cup to Whistler?

 Enter Protour Spesh hate crazy rant in 5...4...3...... Wheelbase looks stable to me. Maybe I should sketch a schematic on a napkin real quick. Just sayin'. Holy crap Fin shreds!

 Dudeeee, didn't you see how unstable the suspension of this bike is, his rear end was swinging in all directions as soon as he left the ground, he could have died because of that... oh wait...
I tried ^^ And yeah. his style is insane!
