Joël Ducrot grew up in Switzerland but moved to Canada six years ago. He lives now in Squamish, a reference for mountain bikers with probably some of the best riding at his doorstep. Ben Walker gave him the opportunity to come back and check for himself what changed over the last few years, what Nico Vink built and see what Châtel Bike Park has to offer.

Kristof Lenssens and Joël Ducrot on their way back up for the next shot. Can't really tell but yes it's a big smile you can see on their faces!
Whips don't lie. This jump towards the bottom of the Serpentine is one of the coolest features in the park. It's meant to be sent sideways.
Between two laps you'll find Mateo Verdier in one of the shops located at the bottom of the lift. Mateo lives for mountain biking and works as a bike mechanic to support his lifestyle.
