If you’re scared of heights then you’d best not watch this one!
Dirt columnist James McKnight was out in the Maritime Alps for a feature in Dirt Magazine #127 (out at the end of this month) and happened upon this bonkers trail!
Jimbob McKnight says:
“Hungry, dehydrated and sleep deprived having shared a room with a group of fidgety, lycra-clad strange men, we set off on day two of a mission around the Maritime Alps with little idea of what was in store for us…having ridden a lot of fire-road to get there, the first single-track downhill of the trip was more than well received and started by lulling us into a false sense of security with some nice dusty turns and alpine meadows to ride through. I was leading out when we rounded a right hand turn into the start of a long section of exposed and narrow trail. Too late to stop and consider the dangers, I rolled on through it and everyone followed. Looking back at the video is quite interesting!
Cheers to Steffano Scialli of Life Cycle for showing us around the mountains.
The rider filming is Andrea Balli www.4guimp.it, a distribution company who sell Ibis in Italy.”
