Sebastian Doerk and Rob J Heran just came back from a somewhat unusual trip for the off season. Instead of flying to New Zealand, South America or somewhere else warm it took them to freezing cold Kentucky, USA.
We haven´t been the first ones underground but everyone else seemed to have turned a blind eye to the insane trail network. Forty-five trails on 325,000 square ft; there´s pure gold underneath the mountain.
It´s called Off Season for a reason, the Alps are covered with snow and we´d usually go somewhere south and warm to get some riding in. This trip was somehow different. When we landed in Louisville we were welcomed by a raging snow storm and the harshest winter Kentucky has seen for 15 years: -24 degrees Celcius / -11 Fahrenheit. Car wrecks lay scattered over the main highways, shops were closed. Just like I would imagine Armageddon.
Warning, after watching this you might want to grab a shovel and dig a hole in your garden.
