FASTFOKUS Episode 5 - Faster Croquetas - Tenerife

by Damien Vergez  
That's it! The last episode is here! Winter is almost here for the northern hemisphere, and many of you will be happy to see the sun.

Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands, which are located just off the coast of Africa, and they guaranty year round sunshine.
Desert and volcanic landscapes, subtropical forests, beaches of black sand with spectacular cliffs, all living together. This is the perfect place for mountain biking!

From 2300m to the sea, from the desert to the forest, Tenerife is one of the best places to ride on the planet, and all of this is in one place! Really fast, technical and beautiful trails !

The last episode: Tenerife Island with Yannick Granieri:

I would like to say thanks again to Adidas Eyewear, Spank, Indem and Shimano France for their support in this adventure, and particularly Scott, Marzocchi and Châtel. Without them this project would not have been possible. All of these partners have the same vision and are as hungry as myself to develop the freeride scene all over the world.

Thanks to Nieves and Raquel from Tenerife, Zeno, Manu and Matt who helped us during our days there! And thanks to you Yannick !

Cheers
Damien and all the Team !

 I've ridden in Lanzarote on a beaten up hired touring hardtail back when I was 14 and it was still one of the best rides I've ever had. Blasting down volcanic singletrack is just the most amazing feeling. A real vibrant culture once you get out of the resorts too - We stopped for supplies at a 'shop' which turned out to be picking random disorganised items off shelves in someones living room and bartering for them over a make-shift wooden table. It was such an insane trip - I still remember the people, the dust and the wind racing through my helmet as we made our way down the volcanoes like it was yesterday Big Grin You can pick up really cheap holiday deals out there - Just, whatever you do, make sure you take your bike.

 Truly amazing camera work. Composition, panning, sliding is perfect in every single shot. Very inspiring for fellow film makers!

 Man this video goes from bad to worse. Boooooooooring.
Dry straights, with some wild "skids", then it seems to go into a gay porn film.
Please can I have the wasted 5 minutes of my life back?

 What have you done in your life to permite you to be The worst of the criticisms...?
Seriousely : "Please can i have the wasted 5 minutes of my life back..."
YOU boring me.

 Why do you appear to have such a problem with people who are gay? Homophobic much.
  • + 1
 ???
What the point with gay people...?
  • + 1
 What part of describing it as "gay porn film" is homophobic?
If I'd said "hetro porn film" would that have offended hetros?
  • + 1
 The homophobic side of your remark is that you're commentary on this film portrays it in a negative light, and therefore you decided to compare it to a gay porn film. Which you clearly meant to portray in a negative light as well. Funny how the rules of comparison work.
