so i have been back a few days now but i thought i'd share a few pics and a little video i did! :D

i love morzine, ski lifts and downhill bikes, what's not to love?!

i left on friday the 20th, getting a late ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe with 3 mates, dan, ben and adam, some of you have met adam, he has been on a few of the retro rides aswel as being in my mayhem team in 2011.

we drove down to morzine, got there around 5pm saturday, sorted the bikes and went on the piss! that set the tone really! :lol:

the trails have been changed and extended in places since i last went but overall there are so many more now than from the early days.

bikes ridden:-

Orange patriot 66 with junior t forks
Orange Patriot with fox 36 forks
kona stinky with junior t forks
cube stereo with fox forks

fails!
2 punctures (cube)
2 rear mechs (cube and kona)
4 spokes (kona)
fox forks (cube)
hayes rear brake (kona)
gear cable (Patriot and cube)

my "old" patriot 66 was epic! no issues whatsoever!!

here's a vid link to sum up some stuff

Sounds like you should all go together and just rent a hut as many do.

we had a perfect(ly placed apartment above the best 3 bars in town) set up right by the Pleney lift

holiday costs

500 for the apartment
265 for the ferry
240 for fuel (3 tanks)
80 for tolls

1085 between 4 so about 270 each for a week plus lift pass, food and beer!
