Every once in a while we get lucky... In Belgium, we have been fortunate to have one of the best summers we ever had: loads of sun, warm temperatures, dusty trails and long riding days... Even in late October we still had some incredible weather giving us a glimpse of what a never-ending summer would be like.
Chaudfontaine has one of the oldest Downhill trails here in Belgium and has been part of the Belgian Downhill Cup for many years. Since it is on private land it should only be ridden during race weekends but fortunately for us, it is surrounded by a lot of fantastic trails with a great variety of terrain.
With winter now finally on our doorstep, we can only hope that next summer will be just as good!
