So that’s it. We’re down from the final run. One man slightly damaged (Mark T – shoulder tendons) and several legendary hangovers, but basically an all round success.
Morzine is in fine form this year. You can really see the trail work that’s been put in (and is still ongoing). Les Gets was still looking a bit post-Crankworx gnarly and has clearly suffered with the rain. If you’re heading out here soon, I’d recommend staying Morzine and Chatel side – the fun is epic.
Everyone has benefited from some serious trail skills improvement this trip. This is the greatest benefit of visiting here in my opinion. It’s not necessarily the difficulty of the berms/drops/jumps – it’s the frequency – and the sheer number on any given run. As Buz described it – in terms of the physical effort it feels like doing press ups and squats – all day!
The weather has been very, very kind (30 degrees plus) and the beer has been cold (but post-brexitly bloody expensive)
Overall however, another win for Morzine as a superb MTB destination. Now all we have to do is edit together the Ridley Scott-esque amount of GoPro footage into something that does the trip justice.
