This edit from the Lloret Trails Crew’s travels definitely deserves a Christmas Eve bump back up to the top!
The Lloret Trails Crew consisting of Joan Balmaña, Ricky Grimal, Cristian Rodriguez, Benito Garrido and Sergio Barroso have spent the last couple of years splitting their time between building at their own spot and traveling Europe riding others. They decided that it was finally time to do something with all the footage that they’ve accumulated, and this edit is the result. Definitely lots of good times in here!
Last year Thomas Candillon-Labarre and Christian Berger hit the road for a tour through the South of France. Unfortunately a crash took Christian out pretty early on the trip, but he still made the best of it by trading out his bike for a video camera. There’s a park section that starts at 01:00 and runs to 03:20, just in case you want to skip through it and get to Peynier.
Seeing Alex Dropsy’s name pop up in a new edit sure did get me excited this morning! It’s funny cause I was just asking someone about him not too long ago. Alex, BiBi, Nicolas Bertier, Markus Hampl, and Bérenger Cordier came together at Peynier last month, and luckily someone had the foresight to get the GoPro rolling on this magical reunion.
I saw this Justin Fouque edit from Soul posted around yesterday but it didn’t even occur to me that there might be some trails in it. Something told me to check it this morning and sure enough there’s a minute long section from Peynier and El Cable. 00:38 is where it kicks in!
How about that, two Peynier videos in one day! Here’s one from a spirited session that Amaury Magnin, Thomas Candillon-Labarre, and Cédric Roatta had over the weekend. Everything seems to be running really well this year!
With the news that Vans Kill the Line wouldn’t be happening again until 2016, I really wasn’t expecting to see any new Kill the Line related content for another year and half. Peynier BMX surprised me though with this POV test run that Bérenger Cordier took last year. I’m pretty interested to see what they have planned for 2016. Don’t quote me on it, but I think they’re completely redoing the line. If you somehow missed the action from the 2014 Vans Kill the Line, you can give it a watch HERE.
Peynier may not be playing host to Kill the Line this year but that doesn’t mean that the sessions there will be slowing down at all.
I just spotted over on The Union that after six consecutive years the crew who put on the Vans Kill the Line contest are taking a break until 2016. Organizing and running a contest that has grown to the size of Kill the Line is a HUGE undertaking, so I don’t blame them at all for wanting to take a year off. Here’s what they had to say about it. “The world’s best BMX trails competition in Peynier, France, will be back 2016! Since 2009 the little town of Peynier in the beautiful South of France has annually witnessed a…
Peynier, Pinard, Eyoka, The Lost Trails, Lloret, that’s quite the little trail tour that Joan Balmaña found himself on. One that I’m positive that any of us would be ecstatic to go on!
