La Molina, Kona bike park,Spain

Actually no photos from here just yet.

We arrived here to find that there was an open weekend with the Kona clump team including John Cowan, Grant "Chopper" Feilder, Andrew Lacondeguy, Luis Lacondeguy and others all taking sessions and guiding some kids down the trails. I gave a tube to one of the Dirt jumpers how had a flat right at the top of the dh tracks.It was his first time riding dh. Didnt cath his name though but we saved him a long walk.
This place is wicked and was some of my favorite riding from eh whole trip.
The trails included the Catalonian Champion ship dh track which was some of the steepest riding ive ever done. Fast, Loose and rocky with a bunch of tech thrown in. 1.7 km long with 350 mtrs of vertical descent.

I think from the Kona site it was the 2009 product launch. Still i had my trusty stinky so no need for a new bike just yet.

Spain and Andorra are shaping up to be my favourite places to go ride. Check it out soon.
