Airline at Les Gets

Something a little different for Tuesday Trails this week - in terms of the video at least. It's got absolutely no one riding a bike in it! Yes this is a bit unusual, but we thought it was worth featuring anyway.  The Airline Trail at Les Gets Bike Park in France has only been open a few days - the bike park opened on Saturday, and this masterpiece is a newly built trail on the Mont-Chéry side of town.  For those of you familiar with the setup at Les Gets this is not the main hub of action - most of the trails drop down underneath the Chavannes and Nauchets lifts on the south side of town.

However, go back 5 years or so and the Mont-Chéry mountain had stacks more options, including a Kona Skills park at the top.  Recent years has seen the focus shift away from this area, but things might just be changing - could the Airline Trail be the start of a larger scale trail expansion plan to reclaim old territory?!  We will see - either way it's an awesome addition to the bike park. And the video goes to show just how much effort went in to the construction - some great wooden features and of course, some huge airtime to be had...
