Special permit to ride down the extremely scenic and steep mule trail Gemmi pass, built in 1742 above the village of Leukerbad. Shot at sunrise from a helicopter, to justify the performance. 900 meters vertical in less than 3 kms, no feet on the ground.

 this photo explains why BMX riders stay in cities... Because they have NO BRAKES!

 You have some skills and strong nerves up top in that tight steep stuff - especially on those corners! Awesome. Thanks for the POV.

 Thanks man. The corners are quite steep. Some of them require that you lean the bike out towards the cliff while turning the handlebars in towards the corner, to the point where it feels like you are oversteering. Then when you let go, and the bike straightens out. A little scary to begin with, but becomes quite natural after a while.

 Not normally the biggest fan of landscape shot with riders hidden somewhere but this is where it all makes sense. Ridiculous trail and epic positioning to truly capture the scale of it. Love it.

 Bet if you zoomed into the ledge there'd be lots of dribbly poo stains. Manoeuvring in those conditions would be tricky Safety first kids!!
