Video: Munich Gaps with Wyn Masters

May 31, 2020
by Wyn Masters  

With plenty of time on my hands with the current situation/no racing happening and a lack of good riding where I am based here in Munich, Germany, luckily enough MTBHopper to sent me out this foldable backpack ramp to ride and off I went scoping some Gaps around the city. This is Volume one of my Munich Gaps series, let me know if you have anymore Munich Gaps I should check out for Volume Two? Also need to get redemption on that last fence gap!

 As a poor jumper, im always impressed about how much speed they can get in such a small amount of space......and hit a tiny jump with that crazy speed.

 "a lack of good riding where I am based here in Munich" Thanks for the confirmation, as guys from munich normaly dont like to admit it!
There is good riding in Regensburg, where I am from. Also there is Geißkopf or Treuchtlingen.
Many oportunities apart from the alps in Bavaria!

 If you equal good riding to descending then you're right. Otherwise let some locals show you the spots

 @Wheeeliemann: I’ve ridden plenty of local spots but nothing too much exciting.

 Munich here. Well, it’s flat, so it’s boring for MTB, there is no denying it. I hate the Isar Trails. Super boring and overrun. 30 minute drive gets me to proper mountains though Wink

 Thanks to Fabio Wibmer, this is now considered totally normal behavior in the German speaking world. Smile

 Honestly Wyn, your stunt double looks exactly like you. How did you manage to find the second most attractive man in the world that can ride a bike as well as you. Mind Blown.

 After watching the last crash for about 10 times, I'm still not sure if he tried to nose bunk and missed the fence or just got nose heavy in the air - both seem unlikely for a rider like Wyn … Awesome video, can't wait for volume 2!

 Nah I had a little too less speed so in order to make it over the fence I had to pull the back wheel up which then sent me in a gnarly nosedive

 As a foreigner living in Germany, if I would ride like that in my neighbourhood I'm pretty sure I would be arrested. They even destroyed a small pumptrack in my town, cause bunch of kids were riding there unsupervised.
