Morzine is known throughout the mountain biking community for it’s long, steep downhill tracks, both official and unofficial. Now, we’re not about to reveal where Morzine’s secret trails are! But, we would like to speak a little about them and where we hope to see the Morzine downhill tracks in the coming years.

Getting to Morzine, There are two ways to get to Morzine. Both have advantages and their disadvantages. Depending on your group size and ability to withstand time in an enclosed space with your friends, one may be harder work than the other! A huge thing to consider is how long the journey will take you, and what state of mind you arrive in. 

The thing with Morzine is, you’re going to be pushing yourself. Unless you live in the Alps, it’s unlikely you come across 30 meter root sections, relentless, jagged rock gardens or trails you’d struggle to walk down that last for 10 minutes, let alone lift assisted with the opportunity to get 20 or more laps in a day for the whole holiday!

Morzine is not all about mountain biking. Nor is it all about walking trails off into the hills. The area is teeming with things to see and do with a family, or even as a down day if you are here primarily for the biking.

What's on offer?

Finale Ligure is not any normal kind of trail centre. These trails are built and maintained, but not groomed. The terrain is as diverse as passengers on the London underground, the sheer scope and crossword puzzle like nature to the way the riding areas present themselves blows your mind the first, second and third time you visit. Bike Park Wales is a lot of fun, but this ain't Kansas anymore Dorothy. Simply put, it's an adventure like no other.

We all know how good Phil Atwill is at riding mountain bikes and that means one thing, he needs a bloody good bike. Phil has been riding the Orange bikes 324 for a good few years now on the Dirt Orange bikes world cup mountain bike team. He has has some great results over the past few mountain bike world cup seasons on the Orange 324 downhill bike and this video show exactly why, the boy is fast, loose, lit and so skilled on a bike.

There has been a lot of track building going on during the Autumn out here in Morzine and the Portes du Soleil and the guys from Bike Park Champery - Les Crosets were not going to be missing out on that action. 

Packing up your bike for that mountain bike holiday in Morzine or Finale Ligure with your mate is the best feeling there is, apart from smashing the trail up when you arrive.

We all know Morzine is an absolute banger of a destination for riding Downhill bikes, drinking beers and lapping up the high Alpine air and this looks set to continue well into the future.

The mountain bike trails of Le Pleney in Morzine are world famous and for very good reason. This little hill with 600 metres of elevation holds some of the most technical, steep, rooty, flat out tracks you can find anywhere in Europe, if not in the world. 

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.
