This second time of lockdown enables us to have more free time, this is why after watching the latest Manual BMX shop video (Couvre feu), I also watched this good one shared between Alaric and our rider JB. Finally, I noticed that never this video was published on the Shape bicycles website... What an offense to the Martine garde crew !! Enjoy with those two riders, as much friends to share a good session as working together to design a sprocket !!
It was several months since we took the decision to plough the Run trail, not an easy one to take, it was an emblematic place for Shape Bicycles, the second trail where the brand evolved (in fact the brand was born at the Local trail). Several events pushed us to this sad conclusion, first of all there was this winter storm in February 2016, which devasted our hut and some tools inside, which pushed the neighbor to cut all trees bordering the trail, as a result the jumps became very windy... Plus, the fact to be alone, during winter it is not annoying during digging time, but one of the basic definition of trail riding is to share sessions. It is the end of an era, which has marked the brand's moved from south to nord of Brittany in 2011 (coming from the Local trail to create the Run trail), now we joined force with Bruno & T at their trail. Below some photos of the place with the latest landing (ploughed right now), it was the biggest of the trail although it looked ridiculous among the empty place, in comparison a photo of Bruno throwing a turndown on the same jump during the jam in 2015. RIP Run trail
