Go-Goats Freeride 2016 by Laféedesrations Derideàroulettes – Event Report

Go-Goats Freeride 2016

September marked our last skate trip of the year and we decided to explore Switzerland and end our trip with our first French event, Go-Goats Freeride.

The second edition of the Go-Goats Freeride took place on September 23 until the 25th. Organised by Laféedesrations Derideàroulettes, everything ran smoothly and the event had a super chill vibe to it.

While the price was more expensive for non-members, we really got our money’s worth. The inscription was 85 euros for men and 75 euros for women, a mere 10 euros increase.

The road was absolutely intense and super fun. The upper part of the track was fast and narrow and got your heart pumping. Once you got past the first two corners, it started getting interesting. The middle section had an open view of the road and tightly packed corners. Followed by a second fast straight leading into the final hairpin and finally, the finish line.

With a top speed of around 80 km/h, 13 corners packed into 2,3 km and an average grade of 10 %, everybody felt their legs in the evenings.

In addition to the great track, the camp was placed right next to the end of the track, on a big parking lot. In the middle of it was a big tent where riders had breakfast and lunch (included in the price), a beer and a big party in the evening.

In conclusion, I would recommend visiting Go-Goats freeride at least once. Everybody was super friendly, the track was immensely fun and the level of skating is super high. Besides the hospitality, the surrounding is also beautiful and offers much needed relaxation after a hard day of skating.

Mushroom Gastronomic Skate Trip

Mushroom gastronomic skate trip

Just before the Go-Goats Freeride (France) in September, Pierre “le Laboureur de Talus” Hardillier, Mathieu Zeder, Thib “la Roulette” Mordacq and me, Alban Pernet, found ourselves on a three-day long skate trip around Morzine. We filled our days with big rides down the small roads, filming, picking mushrooms and preparing delicious dishes on a “Campingaz”. Adoring fresh vegetables, mushroom sauces and good food, it really was a real gastronomic skate trip…

The first morning, a big shooting session to warm up after a night of camping too wet… on El Diablo spot. Riders: Thib and Mathieu

The second day was more conducive to riding than shooting, but allowed us to discover the other spots of the corner… the other face of Joux Plane pass, Praz de Lys- Sommand…
