Table one foot on the Vink Line – not easy to trick a shark fin at that speed.

 @amirazemi: The easy answer is that underground hip hip, or any hip hop for that matter isn't to everyones liking.
  • + 1
 France is the only country where hip-hop/rap are still mainstream Big Grin

 @amirazemi: just not a genre I personally enjoy. Sorry man
  • + 1
 @shaborider: Not the only one. The best selling home soil albums in Poland are Hip Hop albums. What shouldn't be a surprise, French and Poles are having a very similar mentality.

 @amirazemi: I was going to make a Vinnie Paz comment too! Beat me to it.

 Honestly I love Jedi Mind Tricks (the soundtrack) as much as I love my own Banshee, but coming to the comment section I knew they didn't stand a chance. Big Grin

 Vinnie is sick, as is the riding. Unfortunately most of the people here prefer videos with Ellie Goulding instead. This is what happened when bikers changed their baggy jeans for skinny jeans.

 @mentalhead: I love hip hop and Jedi Mind Tricks are pretty good, but that high pitched voice loop in the background was really annoying.

 @mentalhead: damn right man ????

 @mentalhead: lol. Truth. Jedi mind will cut you

 I added this video to favorites as soon as I heard what track it was. Haters be damned.

 Love watching this guy ride. There's something about the mix of precision, speed, and straight up hucking that gets me stoked.. Making me want another Banshee haha

 The riding looked like it was about to be good, but the exit button was quicker than the mute button.

 I love all the videos of the Vink Line in Chatel..... it looks so serene when a good rider hits it!
It scared the crap out of me Frown

 Snap! It was pretty f*cked by the end of the season because of the braking bumps, but dang it was wild.
  • + 1
 @jamesdunford: Aww see thats a shame... we went about 3rd week of the season and the place was pristine almost, so so stupidly fast and smooth.

Then we had a day out to Morzine and Les Gets and it was a braking bump nightmare; seriously who brakes at the highest points of berms?!
  • + 1
 Yeah, the change was pretty wild. When I rode it earlier in the season it wasn't too bad, but as soon as we got into July and August... new ball game. Vink line was the worst, when it opened... SO good. Then it got worse and worse, riding it the last weekend of the season was not an enjoyable experience!!

 Wow. I was a skateboarder back in my misspent youth (80s. I know, I'm old). We used to drop into culverts or half pipes, etc. with our boards in hand. Just stick it out front, hop on and off you go. I've never seen anyone do that on a bike. That was freaking awesome. Dude handled that bike like it was nothing. Whips it arorund, gets on board and off he goes. Amazing.

 Kudos to whomever edited this for leaving out the slo-mo skids and epic 2 ft airs off of rocks, to skid, to turn and stuff. This one's good, made me want to skid and turn and stuff, even without anyone watching or filming.

 So good to see the central part riding the Bernex Bikepark with the Mountain Slopezone et freeride trails ... The younger parc of France shapeed by the team who shape the Chatel Mountain Style ! No bumps and perfect to chill !!

 It's not just Chatel it's Bernex too.

 Where's Bernex? I've not heard of it before!

 @dglobulator: 40 min from Chatel! Sick bike park with a slope zone and loam freeride.
  • + 1
 @RambaudMax: Cheers buddy. Can you get there via the lift system, or is a drive?
  • + 3
 @dglobulator: You need to drive, the bike park is at 10min from Evian
  • + 2
 @dglobulator: one hour from geneva, 40 min from Les Gets ...

 @Anarski: One to check out. Cheers fellas.

 I don`t like the Vink Line. It's to ugly in this beautiful nature.
  • + 2
 I'm with you on that one. It might be super fun, but it looks terrible. Bulldozers parade in the Alps is not a cool thing.
  • + 1
 It does look a bit too wide. Perhaps too much dirt moved?
  • + 3
 Been to Chatel in August and the braking holes were so bad. Riding was zero fun. Went straight to Morzine.
  • + 1
 I think they did the braking bumps in when they cut a new line at Chatel!!

 Braking bumps = zero fun? Just adds to the challenge, no?

 Poor guy, did your fingers hurt? Maybe consider playing chess

 Not that Pleney was not like after WW II bombing... Especially 10% drop.
  • + 0
 @tstaudte: I've been riding European bikeparks for ~10 years now and don't think I've ever seen worse trail conditions than those over in Chatel (+Les Gets 4X). Probably the only place that tops it is Whistler after Crankworks.

 Where do I buy one of those riding Jerseys?
