The crew at mtbisokay go ‘OUT THE DOOR’ with a journey to the ordinary.
“From the beginning the idea behind this trip was quite simple. The plan was to rent a cabin in the mountains and spend a week together with some friends discovering the area and riding new trails.
Every one of us has has our own story about what motivates us to get on a bike. In our eyes it doesn’t need expensive trips to exotic places, endless kilometres of the raddest trails or the ambition to always push the envelope, to make mountainbiking something special. It’s appeal rather lies within the simple joy of going out there with your friends and exploring your surroundings, wherever that might be.
After the first promising ideas we started our trip the following summer, spending a couple of days together with Jonas Jannssen, Fabian Thiemo-Scholz, Rick Schubert and Carlo Dieckmann in Carinthia – Austria. Especially because this region hasn’t really been on the map as a bike spot yet, it was the ideal starting point for our journey.
Looking to document mountainbiking in a genuine way and finding our own path aside well known routes and big bike parks, we wanted to approach the trip without major expectations and leave ourselves open to the surprise of what we would find.”
