When most people hear about France in the mountain bike community, they immediately imagine things happening in the Alps. Especially when it comes to downhill. But no, there's not only one mountain in Eastern Europe that allows you to ride some cool trails. Frenchies are going down the hill pretty much all around the country. From north to south. But for now, the boys have been playing in French Alps, close to the border on the Swiss side, northern Italy and a bit of the French Riviera. There they met with this upcoming french talent, living in the north part of the country.

Leo Jaegle

He's pushing a lot of determination into getting a top spot, and spending as much time as he can at his home bike park of La Bresse, made recently famous for hosting some World cups. Even when conditions are not that comfortable, Leo is always up and ready to get sideways on his bike. We were there with him to shoot some great biking. The guy just signed a new deal with Intense France, and is still pretty close to us at Sulfur Components. He's riding a new M11 carbon and a brand new 106 stem that fit perfectly with the red of his frame.

We wish Leo all the best for this season and those to come. You'll be hearing about him in close future no doubt.

 'Natural talent' is just a phrase made up by folks to describe an amount of focus, work, and determination they do not understand. I consider it an insult.

 @AllMountin: @AllMountin: Stop dreaming, talent exists. Dedication, work and focus will "only" help you reach the max of your potential. Your talent determines how quickly you can reach it and how high your skill ceiling is.

 Funny enough these basic Chucks are actually very good for riding bikes and most every activity actually, I rolled my ankle today and I wanted to know wtf pro athletes do to recover so fast. I find all this info from NBA sports doctors sayin that the new (Beefy) high top shoes and ankle braces are making peeps ankles weak and therefore sending the stress to the knee thus eveybuddy ACL getting chowdered these days. Leading docs say barefoot is best if possible lol......I've always worn beefy 510 Line Kings and ankle supports(sometimes) thinking it was helping......WRONG...... I'm gunna wear vans skate - Hi now alot like chucks just more action sportsy. Nice Nac BTW!

 From my understanding it's not that fact that ankles are weaker that are increasing the incidence of knee injuries, but the fact that the hightops and ankle braces mean that the ankle can't flex. When forces are applied to the foot that would normally be absorbed by the ankle (like when you land on the inside or outside of your foot), and the ankle can't bend, those forces are transmitted to the knee.

You're probably right that these braces and hightops are creating weaker ankles, but weaker ankles would tend to increase the incidence of ankle injuries. These braces and shoes are essentially taking the ankle out of the equation by immobilizing them, which leads to the knee doing double duty; acting as a knee and an ankle.

 @jlobes: thanks for backing me bike bro I was wanting to get that across as well but I have minor dyslexia(type shizzle) so I usual keep it brief but the NBA docs said the same as u, they also emphasized that the knee is stable joint where as the ankle being a mobile 1.(punnin)
As I'm sure you've already known. Do you have any idea on the best shoe to wear while sending drops this one specifically: www.pinkbike.com/photo/1595636

 @PaXXXton: If you have knee problems, wear lowtops. If you don't have knee problems or you do have ankle problems, wear hightops. If you have knee and ankle problems then the shoes aren't gonna do a lot.

Either way, if it were me doing that drop I'd make sure the shoes were brown, so they wouldn't get stained when I shit myself.
