We, at Bikepark Champéry-Morgins know that you are all dreaming of an endless mountain biking season. Unfortunately we can't provide that as at some point the snow will come for the winter. What we can give you as compensation is an extended season providing lift access in Champéry to satisfy your downhill, enduro and e-bike needs every weekend until 22nd October. See ya on the trails!

What a season!
With Nico Vink building the sickest trail ever, Louis Reboul hosting a slopestyle event and a bunch of mates coming from all over the world, it's been without a doubt the best summer so far in Bikepark Châtel.
This video is a mash up of all the good times we had riding bikes with Nico, Kristof Lenssens, Vincent Tupin, Alex Volokhov, Remy Morton, Josh Lewis, Raphael Robles, Joel Anderson, Jasper Flashman and many more.
Many thanks to the bike patrol team for their hard...

It's not often that our videographer, Gaëtan Rey, has some free time to get in front of the lens anymore. He was so stoked when we got our new Red Raven camera that he got out alone for a self-filmed short clip. More stories at Shaperideshoot.com

"Taking part in Redbull Rampage has always been my ultimate goal. Since I started mountain biking I have dreamed about completing in Utah, riding the most amazing and challenging terrain there is. I wanted this video to showcase my skills and capabilities riding big bikes in a multitude of conditions. Many thanks to all of you who made it possible, in particular the team at Bikepark Châtel for their help preparing the big jumps." Full story at www.shaperideshoot.com

When the guys began designing the new track, they wanted a super fun trail that anyone could ride, and that everyone could progress on. They wanted to build a line on which riders can test themselves and improve, but that is still on a track that is built for incremental progress. You don’t have to go from the little table straight to the road gap. They also wanted to build a trail that tweaked some familiar features and might give riders a fresh perspective. Take for example our humble berm...

Lead by Champéry legend, Ben Walker, the trail crew have been working hard to provide the best riding conditions for the season opening. The famous WC track has seen a number of improvements to make it smoother and more enjoyable. The Chevreuil trail has also been completely re-done to offer an alternative which is more accessible for all levels.
Most of the job is done by hand, so if you see Pierre Barreau, Numa Sneiders, Kristof Lenssens or Gaëtan Rey working on the trails, feel fre...

The bike. A frame, two wheels, suspension, pedals, a seat, and bars. Mud flaps or chain guides, bash guards or brake levers. Components in a finite number of possible configurations. But no one would say that any bike is the same. Especially not this bike...certainly not Vinny. This Gambler was made specifically for him by Scott. It even has his name on it. Because it’s cut to fit precisely. Because it has a kickass paint job. “There are many like it but this one is mine.” That’s why it’s the...

Standing next to his bike or sitting in the back of the truck, Vinny T looks like any other rider. 5.10’s. Riding pants and jersey. Helmet and goggles. But on his bike, his feet are twisted and his hands loose and open on the bars. His style is full of weird, tweaky positions. His flow is as twisty as his grip. He corks the bars so far, his feet come off, and he’s bent up with his one- footer out under the post. When he’s pinned, it’s the cockeyed way he floats above the bike while it blas...

Dorénaz is one of the gnarliest track we have in Switzerland. It's steep, technical, rocky and really fast. Take a run down onboard with Gaëtan Rey while he is doing the most of perfect riding conditions we have these days.
