Now that my backyard #lelabo is pretty much complete and runs good, I want to share this awesome playground with deserving people.

We have in France some amazing young riders. And despite all the glory from social media, it’s still hard to make a name by ourself and try to make a living from biking. I want to give the opportunity to some of those guys to come and shred a place like no other, be shot and get advice from guys in the industry. I’ve been lucky enough to have some awesome guests that I call friends, like Antoine Buffart, Antoine Bizet, Maxime Peythieu, Nicolas Rouze or William Robert here.

The plan was be to have them on the spot from Saturday morning to Sunday evening. We’ll have a weekend long session here, try new tricks, speak about business, and shoot some stuff.
So here we are, with Geoffrey Ador, Enzo Cavard, Kylian Breliere, Ken Desmazeau and Arthur Deblonde tearing up the spot and having the time of their life !

First day was mellow, everybody took their time to feel good on the jumps. We still saw some gnarly moves and had good times and laugh all day long !

Day two was even warmer than day one! Everybody woke up pretty early to send it before the sun hits hard. The lines were running even better than before, and has everybody was confident on the spot, they sent it hard!
