Morzine Day1

Sunday, 28th June

From Morzine Day 1

The plan had been to miss the crowds and duck out of Morzine early (tick) and then head over Avoriaz/Chatel/Morgines/etc but as the route shows we ended up back at the start :rolleyes The descent was a mudfest of awkward slippery roots and was far from a gentle start to a weeks long riding.

We then headed over to Les Gets where we found the trails quieter, drier, more flowing and less rooty.

  • Uphilla stacked within the first few minutes, winded after landing on his chest
  • within a couple of miles Farqui decided enough with all this brake-on malarky and promptly parted company with his rig - kneeing a divot with his armour :p
  • 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
Mechanicals: Willy suffered from severe chain-suck, Farqui's FD required a reset, Les broke a spoke
Injury's: plenty of bruises

Dave, were you sucking your stomach in on that profile picture or are they starving you, and is that a goatee I can see?
