Morzine? Chatel? Champery? Morgins? Sound familiar? There's a good reason for that. These places are home to some of the most renowned downhill and freeride lines in Europe, and Portes du Soleil encompasses them all. Boasting 12 resorts, 4 major bike parks and 21 lifts servicing over 50 downhill trails, Portes du Soleil is an absolute must-ride for all mountain bikers. It is no surprise that  Brendan Fairclough is no stranger to this region, having trained, filmed, wined and dined numerous times throughout his career as a downhill pro.

In the latest episode of "A Dog's Life", Brendan is joined by long-time SCOTT ambassador, ex-racer, Crankworx commentator and all-around personality, Andrew Neethling for a few hot laps in the Chatel Bike Park. Once in Morzine, Brendan meets up with fellow countryman and downhill legend Danny Hart, aptly crowned the King of Mud Riding. As you can imagine, things get plenty wild in the Pleney Steeps when these two ride together!

It's A Dog's Life

 They didn't show much of the Pleney steeps in this, but I already I know the camera isn't going to do them any justice. Some of it is basically vertical, normally super wet, with roots and the shittiest berm at the bottom to catch you lol More people go down it on their sides than on their tires

 I can never forgive Brendog for ignoring me in a Surrey car park, maybe he showed the Rampage judges the same haughty disdain.

 Did you go up and talk to him? Or yell at him from across the car park?

 Thanks for sharing. I'm sure you'll start a movement with this. Can't wait to mention the car park the next time Brendog posts something.

 @BikesNRussets: He was busy chatting to ODub and to be fair Ollie said hello to me so perhaps I'm being too easily offended, I'm just so damn jealous of how he rides those bikes.

 Religious reasons, or maybe they are on a racing diet that doesn’t include beer.
