So while I was scoffing lunch today I headed over to to check out the latest the interweb has to offer in the MTB world where I saw a fantastic video “Wild Winter Jungle Shredding and Good Times in Thailand” based at BikePark Chiangmai.

A bike park in Thailand? Oh massive win!!

Anyway, I jumped onto Youtube and found this little nugget which shows one of the things available – a “real world” MTB Training Centre. Looks like it may have been created by “Loose Riders” as far as I can tell – but:

What a simply and utterly brilliant idea! Built on what looks like a fairly small footprint, the concept looks like a progressive way to practice all those gnarly skills you want to improve on.

I have to say, whoever came up with this as a plan is a flipping genius.

Anyone up for an Alps alternative??
