[Julbo Ride Session] Destination the volcanoes of Guatemala with Fabien Barel
This summer, we are once again inviting all mountain biking fans to try their luck at making a video to win a dream enduro trip: 10 days with Fabien Barel riding on Guatemala's volcanoes.
THE VOLCANOES OF GUATEMALA: RIDING ON VIRGIN TERRAIN
Guatemala is a wonderful country both in terms of its culture and geographical environment. Consisting of forest-covered mountains and plains invaded by the jungle, the country has no fewer than 19 different ecosystems and around 30 volcanoes, all bordered by the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean. In other words, a highly varied playground with plenty of virgin terrain. "The idea of going to ride on Guatemala's volcanoes came from one of my friends who's originally from the country," explains Fabien Barel. "It's a destination that's still undiscovered in the mountain biking world, which adds a real dimension of adventure to the trip. Here, we won't be riding on well-worn trails made by our predecessors, but forging our own and making our mark".
A HUMAN ADVENTURE
A unique trip but also an extraordinary human adventure: who wouldn't dream of riding in an unknown country following the advice of a pro? "What particularly attracted me about this project was the concept of sharing and closeness," explains Fabien. "Making a trip that's usually only reserved for the elite accessible to an amateur, so that you can discover a country together, doing what you love and taking pictures: it's quite simply incredible!" The invitation's on the table, so seize the opportunity for a November 2013 departure!
