Video: BMC and Teton Gravity Research visit Switzerland

by 2

Teton Gravity Research has made a (hard to embed) lovely little video about riding in Switzerland (there are hills – who knew?). But even if we can’t offer them piping hot to you courtesy of our own Singletrackvision, the video is a mere click away, right here! It’s all about Zermatt right now; there will be two more videos available soon, we’re told.

Carston Oliver leads Brice Shirbach down epic Zermatt singletrack with the Gorner glacier, and the Italian border, in plain view. Grant Gunderson photo.

And there’s also a sweepstake you can enter with some frankly impressive prizes, which you can enter here,( if you happen to be a US resident).

The video (and the press release) takes the perspective of a couple of people from the US riding European mountain trails – marvelling about the infrastructure and the exposure and all that. It’s rather well shot.

The videos are created in conjunction with BMC Switzerland, SWISS Air and Swiss National Tourist Office, the webisodes will be made available on the dates below:

Episode 1 – March 16, 2016.
Episode 2 – March 30, 2016.
Episode 3 – April 13, 2016.

And once again you can visit to watch the videos.

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome.

He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable.

Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles.

He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds.

He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.

    The sweepstake is for US residents only… 🙁
