“Enduro mountain biking is freedom,” says my guide, Julien Paganelli, grinning at the perilously thin trails weaving down steep grassy slopes above sheer cliffs of grey gneiss. “Are we going BASE jumping?” I ask nervously. By the end of the day we’ll have ridden 32km and climbed 794m of vertical ascent but hammered down an adrenalin-pumping 2,510m of vertical descent.
Upwards you’re welcomed with deep, rocky forests with large meadows whilst lower down it’s dustier and looser with a terrain that I associate with more southern climates. The ability to ride both terrains in a day is easy and enjoyable, with descents lasting as long as 20K and some having over 1500m of drop, something we can only dream of here in the UK!
