Alpine Action

Mates, bikes and big big mountains: It really doesn't get much better than this.

Spent ten days in the Alpine Bike Meccas of Morzine and Verbier, riding superb trails with Rhys and Bish. The two venues are worlds apart for style: Morzine is fast and open, Verbier, close tight and technical. I was riding a lot better this year having got well into the south Wales downhill courses, and have fitted brakes that worked: Good old Hayes HFXs.

The photo shows Bish halfway down Nut House, a descent with 1500m vertical height drop, over looking La Chable. We also hit the bars with Rob, now a Verbier local, and consumed far too much refreshment which led to deep embarressment on both the Giant Twister, and the dance floor.

All this fun is brought to an abrupt end by Gav's funeral tomorrow. Posted by Picasa
