Getting to ride this trail is such a privilege. Starting from a beautiful ridge in the middle of one of the wildest forest areas in this part of the Pyrenees the backdrop is nothing but perfect. From here you drop down onto a steep north facing beech forest followed by a short climb(!) to get back down to a flowy trail through a beautiful pine forest. An experience!
And riding it with a young and super talented rider like Joel was just… impressive.
And the best part? From here you have another 600 vertical meters down to the valley floor! In total this gives around 1100 (!) vertical meter in one go.
