Lloret Trails Crew – Cruising

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!

South of France Tour 2015

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.

Peynier Reunion

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.

Justin Fouque

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!

2014 Vans Kill the Line Test Run

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 Saturday Session

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.

Vans Kill the Line Postponed Until 2016

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 world class BMX event: VANS Kill the Line. After six years, the BMX the trails competition in the pinewoods with the incomparable relaxed atmosphere has gained the reputation of being absolutely unique.
The list of international top riders that made their way to the legendary Peynier trails speaks for itself: Brian Foster, Ryan Nyquist, Chris Doyle, Cory Nastazio, Corey Bohan, TJ Ellis, Mark Mulville, Mike Hucker Clark, Dane Searls, Mike Saavedra, Ryan Guettler, Ben Wallace, Alejandro Caro, Maxime Charveron, or Markus Hampl – just to mention a few.

Undoubtedly the 2014 edition of VANS Kill the Line was the craziest and most successful of all so far. It set new and high standards for the Peynier BMX Crew as the organizers of the event.
To make sure that the 7th edition will be as successful, Alex Dropsy, Berenger Cordier, Bibi, Nicolas Bertier and Cedric Carrez decided to take a creative break in 2015, let the many volunteers rest and to take the time to reshape the line completely for another unforgettable VANS Kill the Line in 2016. In the meantime a big thanks goes out to all riders, partners and hands that wrote history together. See you all next year in Peynier!

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!
