After a long winter, it's finally bike park season in Chatel. In this episode of Sundays in Chatel, we check in with Mateo and see what the Haute Tension trail is all about!

Let's just say this trail has a little bit of everything on offer. Departing from the top of the bike park, dive straight into steep berms, fast lines, rocky sections, and flowy trails.

The Bike Park is now open every day! Come and get some.

 Does anyone remember the old original "haute tension" about 12+ years or so ago where the entry of the track was so steep trough the rocks you had to go down with ropes and drag your bike for the first 20 Meters or so?

 I've wondered myself why people choose the protection they do. As for the chest protector, I've definitely slammed my chest (or belly) on the stem before, twice yesterday lol. I wish there were more options on protection for my legs below the knees. I'm ALWAYS mangling my legs, either by dragging them across the bike when i crash (like OTB) or sometimes when my feet come off the pedals (i ride flats mostly).

 I use soccer pads for the shins - they are not perfect but much better than nothing.
