Braşov XCM recky rides

We started last year’s mtb season on the trails of Postavaru mountain, testing options for the XCM Brasov competition. The fresh green grass and the mild weather inspired Andrei and Mihai to play around, as you can see in the photo gallery below. A video edit done on the same occasion can be viewed here….

Yellow Triangle – Poiana Braşov to Braşov

One less popular trail descending form Poiana Braşov to Braşov city is the Yellow Triangle. Ideal for advanced cross-country and all-mountain enthusiasts, as there are a few quite demanding uphill sections, this trail is most of the times avoided by the local downhillers. They prefer more straight forward descents, and ”Valea cu Apa” is much… Read more »

Superski în Dolomiţi

Kind of both off-topic and off-season, but I have to mention our week of ski in the Dolomites this March. Bottom line, if haven’t been there, you should go. Imagine a skiing area the size of a quarter of Transylvania, with about sixty (yes, 60) times more slopes than what’s available at Poiana Brasov. All… Read more »

Powder at Padina, Bucegi

Last year we had poor snow at the end of March, so for 2013 we decided to go to our freeride session with “Les boys” much earlier, at the beginning of February. It was the right decision, we enjoyed some superbe fresh snow. We drove to Padina on Friday evening, in order to be there… Read more »

Ski touring in Bucegi, March 2012

Some ski touring up in Bucegi in spring 2012, an area where we’ve been cycling quite a lot this summer, where we plan to ski some more this winter and where, of course, we’ll be pedaling once more next summer.

Piatra Craiului all-mountain video

The third day of all-mountain riding with Sigge and Micke was spent on the trails and tracks of Piatra Craiului National Park. The majestic Zărneşti Gorges, some mild and scenic pastures at Vlăduşca and La Table. The highlight of the day, the downhill from Cabana Curmătura to Fântâna lui Botorog. That’s a trail in desperate… Read more »

Up in Bucegi Mountains, Omu Peak

They live in Denmark for more than twenty years, but still speak Romanian with a genuine accent. They left Constanţa on the Black Sea shore when they were kids to live with their families close to the wet and chilly North Sea. How were George and Răzvan able to get into mountain biking in Denmark,… Read more »

Şaua Strunga descent: this is how it’s done

A 11 min video edit from a Bucegi all-mountain session this summer, with Sigge and Micke. We climbed from Padina to Strunga Pass, then all the way down to Bran village. The camera (Go Pro Hero2) was mounted on Sigge’s bike during the tough descents (no, there is no fast forward effect) and on mine… Read more »
