 They've got about as much traction as Pinkbike staff trying to tell us everything is going to be great.

 Good to hear a pro giving that "this is so much fun/am I going to die?" giggle.

 Ah, yes. Picking your way down seemingly impossible scary sh!t. That is what mountain biking is all about.

 It's really a masssage to the ego watching the best in the world struggle that hard with that track in the wet. I mean, I'll be honest, I struggled even more every single time I rode it, but still, watching them not making it look easy makes me feel a lot better about my struggles

 Probably would have looked easier if Troy wasn’t following. Some of that was rough to watch

 Those tracks are hard enough in the dry. Almost unrideable in the wet. Always good to see riders having so much fun Smile

 Those trails are cute compared to some chables dré dans le pentu. I am not gonna say spots in Savoie but you should check Bex in Valais Switzerland and verify your pads before hahaha.

 @Ba1rog: if you've ridden the chute into Les Gets, the first track in the video, you'll know that it's not all that possible for it to get steeper. They cut across the bottom section in the video multiple times because it's unrideable with any moisture.

 @AlanMck: Man i am from there, trust me there is a tons of similar stuff and chables like that even steeper. I rode it a few times, yep it is steep af and obviously unrideable when muddy. Not a massive fan of Morzine and steep straight lines like that in general. There is way better stuff nearby and if you want you even have fantastic pierrier/ official and unofficial steeper trails in Chatel, Champery and Avoriaz.

 The essence of mountain biking:

Crashing, laugh-screaming on the edge of losing control, saying how scary everything is - "This is some of the best riding I swear to god that I've ever done in my life"

 I gave ridden it in dry once. Super hard to control your speed. In the wet would be insane!

 Loam (/lōm/): a soil with roughly equal proportions of sand, silt, and clay.
