Our trip to Morzine in July started so well with at least one sunny day with dry trails to give Leeroy a taster of what the Alps have to offer.

So here's the highlights of Day 1: the dry edit. Having reviewed all the footage I still can't quite believe how much we covered on that day in terms of variety of trails and distance covered with 51 kilometres and 10,000 feet of descending.

It really was a great day and full of promise for the rest of the week which was rudely shattered with a heavy thunderstorm that first night, a damp ride the next day and then solid rain for the rest of the week. The edit is broadly chronological and you can see the cloud gathering as we go through the day...

So the $64 million question is whether the 12 hour car journey each way and however many hundred Euros we spent getting there on tolls and petrol plus food and chalet rental was worth it?

Damn right it was, what a place; looking forward to next year already.

Choonz from the Aussie rappers Hilltop Hoods with the classic 'Nosebleed Section' from a few years back (is this Aussie rap?). I have no rights to this soundtrack, blah, blah, blah.

I deliberately included the same section of wooden slats in the edit so that you can compare this to how it looked on the 'wet edit' (whaddya mean you haven't watched it?) vimeo.com/103075449

Who can spot where Stevo asks Terry how many spokes he's broken?

What mullet?
