Morzine Day 2

Sunday, 28th June

From Morzine Day 2



We ended up in Switzerland today - Champery and found a whole heap of much more flowing trails that were great fun. Oh and it's high over there :p


  • Uphilla stacked on the G5 but his armour saved him
  • plenty of other minor stacks
Posse: Dozer (Canyon), Farqui (5Spot), Les (Pitch), Uphilla (5Spot), Willy (Cotic)
Weather: absolutely fabulous sunny with little breeze and toasty warm. x1 downpour mid afternoon
Mechanicals: Farqui's Pike decided to dump it's damping fluid (Floodgate cap gone and o-ring not sealing), Uphilla and Les replaced their brake pads. Willy and Les had a few pinch punctures.
Injury's: plenty more bruises

Sounds like it's taking its toll on your bike! Always wanted to get over to Champery and ride the DH track but the lifts weren't working last year. Views look incredible!

looks amazing, certainly beats the M25 and Colchester!

Can you stop having fun.

Farqui said...

"fun" r'come on you don't mean that. As I recall day consisted of fear, lots of fear - even on the lifts ;)

Farqui said...

One possible "fix" for Rockshox floodgate leaks.

Later RS Forks have a grey plastic bit which was supposed to have fixed this leak. Or at least on the Boxxers anyway - didn't get any troubles with leaking from them anyway. Good find and fix though!
