To know where you want to go you need to know where you come from. That saying has never been truer for MTB than at this time, with all the technological evolution and wheelsize talk.
Being a world cup rider for Hutchinson UR is not only training and timed runs, it's also discovering, or rediscovering, new trails. Mick, Holly and Fabien took their Enduro Polygon bikes and went to Fairfax, California, to ride the first ever MTB DH trail, the Repack downhill, which dates to 1976.
After that they went on the brand new "Flowy" trail, the latest evolution of the MTB trail, basically resembling a giant pump track.
37 years of MTB evolution between those 2 trails and for sure we had as much fun drifting Repack as we did pumping the Flowy trail.
