Golden mountain, blue sky and a trail full of promise. Fall comes and goes. We seek for the season of gold, hoping for the best time and it's always too short. But I'm glad I took some time to make that video. Before the snow came and eventually dislocate my shoulder!

Even if I'm from Nice and I consider the Maritimes Alps as the best place on earth for mountain biking, I still prefer to ride in Savoy and so it became my home 9 years ago. This place has awesome riding and it's quite central with Valais, Aosta, South Savoy area, Chartreuse, Isère, Queyras, ... But with the proximity of Annecy the main town I'm also very close to the Aravis range.

This range is gnarly! it's steep, it's rocky and quite wild.

So, after filming over there for a few projects I decided to launch that mini-series of 4 episode, and guess what? Yeah, it's about the four-seasons. And I start with the easiest, the most beautiful one, Fall.

Thanks to my friends for the rides.

Have fun watching it!

Start of one of my favorite downhill around! Gnarly and diverse, with critical exposure and stuff. Still waiting for Nate Hills to show him this dramatic ride!

First snow on the beautiful colored trees was so cool.

Looks like winter? it's not!

Solo ride and filming mission in the south of the range. Was so good.

The lake during lockdown was quite calm.

Carving but not too much...

This is "Pointe Percée" and it's the highest point of the range, culminating at 2752 meters.

Typical lines and landscape of the area are limestone and alpine riding.

The heart of the Aravis range, small town, valley, diversity and mountains.

Alexis Chenevier, not a fan of filming. Ready to rip!

Mellow ride with my bro deep in the woods, around town.

One trail, one big mountain and a small man. This is perspective and it's useful.
