Trails That Drop Jaws Under Switzerland’s Most Iconic Peak - Singletrack Switzerland Zermatt

In the first episode of Singletrack Switzerland, a new Teton Gravity Research mountain bike project produced in partnership with Swiss International Air Lines, Switzerland Tourism, and BMC Switzerland, two American mountain bikers – pro rider Brice Shirbach, and pro skier Carston Oliver – venture to Zermatt, Switzerland, where they experience alpine singletrack on a level and in a landscape ummatched in North America with the help of Epic Europe tours

With gorgeous singletrack winding down thousands of vertical feet of Swiss Alps mountainsides from gondolas, trams, and trains that climb near every peak in the valley, the pair join German BMC Pro Rider Kerstin Kögler to experience all Zermatt has to offer, including Gornergrat train-assisted descents and the giant Zmutt Glacier, which is steadily being whittled away by climate change but yet still holds an unparalleled beauty.

When it comes to racing bikes, every second matters. That’s exactly why racer Forrest Riesco spends his season finding the straightest line down the hill to shave time off the clock - because in racing, results are the thing that matter most. However, riding bikes is so much more than going as fast as possible, and Riesco knows also knows a thing or two about style.

You might not ever see Calvin Huth hucking his meat off a 60-foot drop at Red Bull Rampage, but that doesn't mean he's not right there in the thick of it. He most certainly is.

It’s been a bit since we’ve seen anything from our friend Josh Bryceland (aka Ratboy) on the mountain bike front. We know it’s winter, but that’s not stopping the lads from heading to warmer climates to surf some dirt. We’ve heard that Portugal is quite the surf destination these days, so it’s no surprise that the crew headed to the Chiba Bike Farm, a little outfit featuring some pretty wave-y trails in the Northwestern part of the country.
