Our young rider JB was on trip in Spain and Portugal some weeks ago, called the "Crépuscule tour". He took the road with several French riders, they were looking for sun. JB wrote some words in order to summarize his trip, photos were taken by Max Rabiller.
Belmonte - Portugal. We spent 3 days at this spot, actually it was the only and first bowl I rode where there isn't any locals, that's why it is called the "Lost bowl". A good session between a sandwich and a coffee.
Full pipe lost in the Portuguese countryside. The pipe is massive, I felt small inside, we could fell pressure in each of us as we thought of going down this abyss. This spot is really difficult, critical transitions, vegetations, and a little river. Franck who I followed on the second photo, took a big crash at the bottom, trying to avoid one of this limestone bed. There was only one run through this abyss...
South of Spain. This is the famous ditch from the Etnies forward video. We arrived at the spot during the night, we decided to sleep directly into it. We woke up with a coffee while thinking over this spot, we grabbed our brush and let's ride. Our motto was go fast !
