Web series: Come ride with me - Episode 3 / Les Vosges mountain
Have you seen the first two episodes?! Rémy Absalon, Damien Oton and François Bailly Maitre are back with their new web series they came up with during the lockdown "Come ride with me" - inspired by the TV show “Come dine with me”.
This third episode takes place at Rémy Absalon's beautiful riding place in Les Vosges famous mountain.
Episode 3/ Rémy ABSALON’s place – Les Vosges mountain: Famous MTB area, Rémy is attached to his home spot. He welcomed Damien and François in a typical mountain lodge where you can taste the local flavors. Then among all the different kinds of riding spots he has available, he chose to take François and Damien on a terrain everybody loves… LOAM! Shredding good dirt is perfect to end this “Come ride with me” season!Concept reminder:
The concept is simple, one of the riders hosts the others and makes them ride one of the best trails in the region. The main goal is to show people that there is no need to travel too far in order to find a very nice biking destination. Up first was Damien who hosted the team in the Pyrenees, close to Perpignan. François, hosted them in the Jura, close to Geneva (Switzerland), where he now guides riders for his guiding company Jura Sick Guide. Remy showed them his favorite trail in Remiremont, in Les Vosges, where he lives and also manages his enduro camps company Irwego.
So, once the 3 lads rode the trail, they had to give notes about a few criteria like,
- landscape (what is surrounding you on your ride is almost as important as the quality of the trail)
- dirt quality (good dirt loamy, versus sticky clay)
- global quality of the trail, that includes the flow, the trail features, length, diversity,…
- And the extras, like how they have been hosted, including food, drinks,…
But more than everything, it was a good excuse for these 3 friends to ride together during this crazy year with the lack of events. There is nothing better than having a High Five at a bottom of a trail with your best buddies.
