Video: Dreaming of Pleney Summer Laps in Morzine

Apr 29, 2020
by MTB BEDS  

Take a fast-paced GoPro ride down the famous Le Pleney Black in the world's biggest bike park Morzine, with Morzine local and undisputed King of Pleney, Lee Huskinson.

Before you lose your minds, 10% was being worked on. He rode round it faster than most can ride straight down it, anyone wanting to take up that challenge you'll find Husky on Le Pleney most lunch times.

Crossing our fingers for more of this soon, thank you to everyone working on keeping us safe and to all of our loyal clients that have been so patient and understanding. We can't wait to have you back shredding with us soon.

 Morzine is clearly the european whistler! It won't be a real summer without a trip to morzine... F*** you COVID-19!

 @JordanHuschard: Nothing beats Morzine & Samoens combo

 @JordanHuschard: unfortunately not, but they are definately on my list. I've been to portes du soleil, la bresse and lac blanc a couple of times. Frace is clearly one of the best, if not even the best riding destination in Europe.

 @boss-matsumoto: This has been one of the morzine track builders, they are trying to smoothen out the breaking bumps and fix demage on the trails. There hast been an "attention" sign right before.

 Lol! I think you meant to say the Portes du Soileil is the European Whistler. Morzine only has 7 trails one of which is a link to Les Gets and another is an "enduro" trail that has some climbing.

 @greendavid7: try it, you will definitely love it, no breaking bumps and you have 1000m elevation run everywhere Wink

 @JordanHuschard: 1000m: endure 800m of boring trail to ride 200m of good stuff, that's in my experience.

 no, Morzine / portes du soleil is super great and all( so grateful to live 3h away) but the European whistler nomination definitely goes to Hafjell. one of the completest Bikeparks in 2 lifts. not a lot can be compared to whistler shape wise(and diversity) but Hafjell is on a similar level with its uniquely shaped roller coster jump trail to top it off.

 @void: :o where did you find this ?

 @JordanHuschard: Val d'Isere for instance, nice trails below treeline with basic flow trails from the top, and you have to pedal to the lift after you're done.
After 3 summers in Morzine I decided to mix it up and explore other resorts last summer. Visited Arcs, Meribel, Tignes, Orres, Allos, Verbier, La Thuile, Pila, Canazei, Nauders, Fiss-Ladis.
Tignes was the worst, just most basic flow trails. There was one decent trail with sizeable jumps but that's not something average Tignes visitor would hit.
And how can you compare Tignes to Whistler. Whistler is mostly below treeline, there is not a single tree in Tignes.
Les Orres was nice.

 I love this track so much! This vid looks like a fast forward on my GoPro's vids! He just missed the first nice cut on the left, entering the woods. Except that, everything is pretty much PERFECT!

 Making me sad as I don't think we will be there 1st week July given covid situation her/there/with the airlines - Was due to be going as part of an independent group.

With the passportes du soleil event being pushed back to august, do we think that this means the lifts in general won't be open until then, even if the french authorities relax restrictions?

 remember me amazing days of riding in sunny days and even in rainy days! in the late afternoon we're going to the swimming pool to relax and chill, dinner, sleep (after sex) and here we go again.. and the cherry on the cake was the raclette the evening before leaving morzine!! wow i have to go there again :-)

 Same here, think I'll pay the balance and book a slot for next year. Can't see it happening this year and even if lifts open etc I can't imagine all the bars etc will be up and running. Won't be the same not being able to have a few beers after a day of riding!

 There was definite braking.

 Heaven forbid! He was going for a KOM and he paid his lift pass so he has the right to run over any and all trailbuilders!
I jest but that seems to be the sense of entitlement folks have in Châtel, no sign or net will stop them from riding down at lightspeed when we are fixing up a trail. No trailbuilder has been seriously injured yet but it is only a matter of time!

 Definitely touched the brakes, I did apologise to the trail builder afterwards, he’s cool with it. They just need a few more signs so the can warn people a bit earlier, anyhow pleney is looking great some building is underway and hopefully Be on the trails soon
