Behind the Scenes
Such a trip doesn’t come up every day. The destination of Taiwan was chosen for a couple of reasons. First of all, we haven’t heard of anyone who's made a freeriding tour around this fascinating island so far. The mountains there rise high up to more than 3000 metres which is a convincing argument to us.

After the decision was made we called to our friends in FUNN Company from Taichung, booked a car and bought the four tickets for the flight with Emirates to get from Prague to Taipei with one stopover in Dubai.

Here we are with some statistics which can tell more about our expedition. After all, we stayed 12 days on Taiwan where we travelled more than 2500 km in Toyota Innova.

The car consumed 6 full tanks of petrol while we drank 52 bottles of water and an unknown amount of excellent Taiwanese beer.

Gaspi was riding his blue Mondraker Dune XR Carbon with the FUNN components, Mitas prototype Highlander Textra tyres and Fox suspension.

We went all around the island, made some criss-cross expeditions through inland mountain ridges and reached our highest point in 3250 m above the sea.

Every day we spent at least 12 hours searching for the spots suitable for freeriding. However, it was not easy. We made stops at a hundred places but found only less than twenty suitable for both riding and photo shooting. 115 GB of photos and 219 GB of video footage were taken.

Last but not least we’d like to thank the super helpful Kenny and all the other guys at FUNN, Bobby Chen and the Taichung biking crew, foremost to Flower, Kimberly and Titic.

 Dude! That was Killer! Great film! You found some awesome lines! Radical terrain. Some of those trails looked way fun. I was totally riveted from the old guy fishing on to the blind harmonica player. Looked like a good time.
