Words: Xavier Barneto

Long story short, they've stolen my Gambler the day before Portes du Soleil opening, so I took my enduro bike to release my nerves in Morzine. That was pretty cool, until I broke my frame.

 It was like that when I went there 10 years ago and it was like that this year. Saw several mini diggers out there flattening them out, but they just keep on coming back...

 Good to all the braking bumps on opening day just shows they didn’t bother their holes doing anything b4 opening explains why Les Gets is always such a mess

 I know the Pleney bikepatrols and they're working really hard to fix everything before, during, and after the season. Some sections are just way too steep/fast so they are full of brake bumps again 2 days after...And summer can be very dry too...

 That was sick!! Where's the PB member who thinks these aren't big hits and that he would hit jumps this size on his DJ bike? Must be sleeping..

 Why is every video filmed so close you can hardly see the wheels of the rider these days? So hard to watch what’s going on.

 "Hey guys! I can roost a corner. Want to see me do it again? and again? and again? and again?"

Don't get me wrong, it's cool to see someone going so fast on a trail/enduro bike in Morzine/PDS (having done it myself I know it's not as easy as this guys makes it look)
But honestly, this trend of blowing out corners for the 'gram can take a long walk off a short cliff.

Good he didn´t have a Slayer, would have ended his trip on the first day because of the broken frame Smile

 Don't know if it's a trail bike or not, but it's absolutely not a DH bike

 @xavierbarneto: its a very cappable enduro bike that in right hands with good skileld rider can do Rampage in my opinion Smile Btw. it's 2015 Giant Reign !!!
