NORRONA (V) MAGAZINE fjørå replayed

Deep in Norway's Sunnmøre fjords is the small village of Fjørå. Over the centuries, local farmers have cleared trails up and down the steep mountainsides. Today, those trails challenge technical mountain bikers who descend to the rocky shore from 1100 metres over sea level. Check out the Norrøna fjørå mountain bike collection at http://www.norrona.com/concepts/fjora

 Absolutely fantastic. Nothing makes me want to ride more than a vid like this. The song is Mouthful Of Diamonds by Phantogram.

 Defiantly worth the push up.

 Except they obviously took that helicopter that was filming them.

 I'm the first rider and can promisse you that we sertainly walket that mountain several times...

 You didn't take the heli up at all? Why not?

 The greatest thing with Fjörå is that you can shuttle really high, look after the highest roads in the distant shots and you can see that the remaining hike to the very top is just a couple of hundred height meters.
The minute costs for a seriously good filming-helicopter is higher than you think and absolutely not made to fit bikes and ridersSmile Armin who was riding in orange is actually an awesome enduro rider and used to hiking, he ran up the hill while I was struggling, I mostly ride liftaccesed-downhill.

 Ah fair enough, lift accessed is definitely the best. Pushing up uses up so much energy, I'm quite fit but I'm no enduro rider.

 Totally agree. Nothing better than some good ol' all mountain ripping!

 This video confirms it, I REALLY need a helicopter... and a sizable travel budget. Norway looks amazing. great riding too, gents.
  • + 7
 And it also confirms that the mountain bike industry has a playlist that's 10 songs long. Wink

Aside from that, incredible shots, movie-worthy edit.

 I recommend a Sikorsky S-76, plush accommodations and super reliable. You could probably grab one up for just over $1M. www.aircraftonsale.com/details.php?id=495

 Amazing landscape and great riding. The guy in the orange just seems effortless on a bike and has style for miles.

 Nydelig film...faster n' Fjøråiously to fjord foreshore eh?

Fully appreciating the Apocolypse Now helicopeter footage of my favourite singletrack..

Have been fortunate enough to ride this locale for a few fine seasons, there's a few pics of it on my page here...however I am utterly gobsmacked by the fint Fjørå-flow and airborne imagery.

Cheers,

J

 Very nice Spot! I was wondering how did you guys make the movie inside the trees, do you have special camerA to follow you like this?? Great job anyway!

 This is gorgeous. The cable camera shots are some of the best I've seen - does anyone else have any great cablecam shot singletrack videos like this?

 Hi SGTMASON.
The followcam shots in the trees are done with zipline and a EOS 7D with 10-22 lens (which actually broke) I think the longest stretch we did were about 80 metres.
  • + 2
 Damn that was awesome. Those guys have some serious flow on those trails. Would love to ride there.

 I love Norway.....one day I'll immigrate.........when I get some serious money though as the place is sooooo expensive!
  • + 1
 I bought a round in a pub in Bergan a few years ago, 2 pints and a coke......£20....argh. But seeing this makes me want to go back.
  • + 1
 Yeah, but if you lived there you'd be paid relatively, so it wouldn't matter that it was £20.
  • + 1
 I was luckily enough to live in Norway for one year and it was one of the best times in my live. Such a beautiful country. What I liked most is the fact that so many people know more than working, earnig money, working, ...
It is expensive for sure but the average wages are way higher than in Germany for example. So if you have a job, it's affordable. One day, I will be back Wink

Well deserved VOD for sure.
