 @sportsuff In fairness though, pretty banging first date. Defo beats 30 minutes a Starbucks with a weirdo that looks nothing like their profile pic.

 Perspective: this is an ad series put on by the UCI for the World Champs hype train. Don’t expect raw riding clips or anything more than PR with some top riders that have name recognition.

 You are totally right. And for what it is, it's very well done. Of course, some will never be pleased.

 @njparider: I for one enjoyed it. When I go somewhere I want to know where to ride, eat, drink, etc.

 Valais is an amazing place to ride! Those videos are mediocre at best. Doesn't do the amazing riding and the scenery any justice. 2/10 marketing agency.

 Is there more stuff to ride at Champery now other than the DH track of old ?
  • 5 0
 Yes there is. On the other side of the mountain you have Bike park Les Crosets with few trails, also 2 of them on the sides of DH. Also not far away is Morgins with awesome trails. All is connected with one pass with the French side Chatel, Morzine, Avoriaz and etc.

 @rideronthestorm1: If you want to ride in Champery/ Les Crosets, park right next to the gondola in Champery. And you can get back to your car with the Sundance trail, that starts in Les Crosets.

 @Blablablup123: Thanks for the information sounds like there is plenty of new stuff to ride since my last visit 15 years ago .

 The ‘flow’ trail in the video is les crosettes II (deux) if you take the mossettes lift from les crosettes you can access the gran conche trail, that’s awesome with a magnificent view on the dents du midi. And morgins is paradise, not too crowded, perfect trials with tech, flow, jumps, steeps, everything.
