VTT hivernal : neige, vent, chutes, on abandonne !


WINTER RIDE directed by Alexis Righetti it’s 7 am we have been waiting for this outing for 2 weeks the weather is very bad in the Pyrenees since 10 days snow, rain, wind… it’s the first bright period we’ll enjoy with Fanny I don’t fell it well… it was supposed to be sunshine and the snow is low in altitude not many people on the village square… but where’s the sun? you are not afraid to go up there? no, don’t worry you have snow tires yes but not anti-leaves tires here we are it’s so cold… yes stop shooting, we go! the advantage of the carbon frame: you don’t freeze your fingers on it – are you ok Fanny ? – Yes I’m too hot with this clothing it warms up to carry the bike yes maybe we can do freeride there… what do you think? do you see how soft the snow is? yes it looks like baby rabbit down beautiful isn’t it? yep we caught the only bright period… …of the last 3 weeks sublime with the right snow depth and texture so we’ll climb as high as possible, maybe up to a peak and we’ll see what stops us first: snow depth, weather?… strong wind should blow this afternoon… do you see these clouds there? It’s the wind which is bringing bad weather I put snow in the helmet? yes, inside! it won’t be easy to downill… all traps are hidden and trust me, in Ariege, there are plenty of traps! we follow guy making the trail with snowshoes it’s beginning hard… what do we do? what do we do? do we stop? It’s ok for now isn’t it? what is difficult are the snowdrifts no, what worries me is that we arrive on a flat area it depends if you want to do the loop or not my bike is full of snow… it weighs 3 kg more I’m not sure we’ll succeed to reach the summit the summit is there it’s too far and above all too flat so it’s the wind that stops us it could be the snow depth but no, it’s the wind such wind by this temperature, it’s very cold you’re crazy the felt air temperature fell from 5 ° C to -15 ° C so fun! this shape of clouds means bad weather is coming they are big! so horrible the sound of breaks in the snow sorry to make so much noise with my brakes you can go faster! wait what? my brakes have a weird vibration as if it were loose no it’s good I fell the leaves are totally slippery it’s amazing how slippery it is SUSCRIBE we put the lumberjack clothes to go riding it wasnt so bad!
