Loosefest 2017 Teaser Loosefest 2017 Warm-Up Session
We're here at Bike Park Ferme Libert to catch up with course builder and all time shredder Nico Vink to see how the final touches are going for the most insane week of riding some of the worlds biggest dirt jumps.
A few changes and additions have made things look even crazier than before and it looks like we're in for an amazing week of riding.
Lines like Loosefest don't exist anywhere else, so it's the only time of year anyone can ride jumps this big and even to the best they never get any less scary.
This makes the appeal even bigger for riders wanting to see and try it for themselves. "I think most of them are just keen to ride the line. They heard stories of it being big, but it's actually super good, but scary as well. A lot of them doubt, but usually, when they show up they get it."
Many of the worlds best riders make it out every year and this year is no different, even a few new faces have popped up and can't wait for the riding to start! Even the peoples' champ, dirt bike wildman, Tyler Bereman, is coming straight from X-Games to shred with the boys again.
Working on lines this scale is a feat on its own, most trail spots could probably be made out of the dirt from one landing, but experience, friends, big machinery, and lots of passion gets the job done! Refreshing the line is a huge task, but you need something new/different to keep the regulars on their toes. Some changes have been made and lots of fun additions on the bike park line have made it way more fun to warm up.
Lots of riders have arrived already and lots more are coming over the next few days, it's looking like it will be another jaw dropping week of riding!
