Shaping a new trail for next shooting.

Summer ends and fall shows up. Resorts closed their doors few weeks ago and we have some free time between two shuttle sessions. It's time for us to dig and build new trails to have something new to shoot as soon as possible. We found a forest early summer this year that we called "L'Amérique" because we felt like if we were in North America in a kind of Vancouver style place. Big trees with a lot of good dirt easy to shovel. We are trying this time to create something very funny to ride with a lot of jumps, a freeride trail with a pumptrack inpiration. Hope it will be ready before the end of the year but if it's not, we will have some good spring shootings next year for sure !

Etienne Gurnel our logger
Our logger Etienne Gurnel. Maybe the craziest man we know. So happy to have him in the team. Always up for shapping or riding his bike.

Vincent Tupin also shapping sometimes
Vincent Tupin, every time on his bike, but also here with us to dig.

New skinny to get through this nasty part.

The team worked on the line all saturday but sunday we slit. A part kept on digging in a dirt trail (we miss a dirt trail so we are building one), Etienne and Vincent went to try this track. Here is a little gopro footage from Vincent riding it for the first time.

Lunch time for the logger.
