The Sickest Bikepark Line Ever // The Vink Line in Châtel
When the guys began designing the new track, they wanted a super fun trail that anyone could ride, and that everyone could progress on. They wanted to build a line on which riders can test themselves and improve, but that is still on a track that is built for incremental progress. You don’t have to go from the little table straight to the road gap. They also wanted to build a trail that tweaked some familiar features and might give riders a fresh perspective. Take for example our humble bermed turn. While, it’s true, some of the turns on the Vink line fulfill all of the speed scrubbing re-directing duties of any normal berm in the world, some of these berms are wall-riding monsters with near pants-shitting g-outs. Even the expected features are delightfully maniacal on this family-friendly/test-pilot worthy adventure.
So take the lift up, put on your grown up pants, close your eyes and GO. But first, take a minute to allow Nico, VinnyT, and Kristof to show you exactly what the Vink line is all about.
