Video: Coffee & Swiss Singletrack - The Gehrig Twins Living the Good Life in the Off-Season

Caro and Anita Gehrig are coming home after a season of racing at the Enduro World Series, to find calmness in their chosen home– the mountain town of Flims, Switzerland. To decompress from the stress that a racing season brings with it they are heading back to the comfort of their own house, friends and family. Finally taking the time to rest, let their bodies heal and find the strength to be ready to do it all over again next season.

For them, the precious time at home means being able to settle in, roam around and drink coffee but also to ride their favorite trails with their best mates. Putting away the quest for success, forgetting about the pressure and the best line and just purely enjoying what draws them to this sport; nature, the good times with friends, admiring the best views and of course still looking for a little thrill. Fall riding at it’s best! It’s an important time to regain motivation for the upcoming winter training but also to recover from life on the road.

The time to unwind also leaves more time for their passion for coffee. A coffee and cake gathering with friends or the first cup in the morning, for them is pure joy.

 There should be more coffee/beer sponsors. Between coffee and beer it probably adds up to similar time spent on the bike. Maybe herbal sponsor because Canada

 I think the Collective movies were also sponsored by coffee and beer, have to pop in the dvd check the intro again. That said, considering the British contribution to mountainbike riding as we know it now there should probably be a good tea sponsor. Herbal tea would make a good compromise but I'm not sure whether that would piss the Brits off.
