Though there are many to choose from in the area, for this edit Rémy went for a few of his favorites. Zone 1: Remiremont. This is where Rémy and his brother live, and where most of the Absalon training sessions go down. There are trail everywhere, literally. Rémy takes pride and joy in maintaining and building trails throughout the year, and the particular trail we shot is one that Rémy worked on all winter. No build, no party.
When it comes to Enduro Specials, for Rémy there isn’t quite anything like his local “Descente de Nol.” An old hiking trail with ancient stone walls, incredibly green moss and large granite blocks left and right. This is where things get technical!
The famous Hautes-Vosges is home to La Bresse. Greater elevation change, huge variety in terrain, leafy loamy single track amongst the pine trees most notably. Some of our shots were on the SP de la Vierge, fast and playful.
