Description

Trail

We are lucky to use some of those old trails on our tour. Spruce & pine tree needles, blueberry bush and heather flowers make our trail feel very natural. Challenging factor can be found on steeps and rooty sections.

Riding technique

Advanced

I am riding for a longer time and can tackle also bigger jumps and drops, steep sections, but have a healthy respect from going big

Physical fitness

Boar

Riding around is what I like most, ideally for about 30-40km and I can get up to 1500 height meters without my legs giving out

Please ensure your fitness level meets the requirements of the tour.
