Earlier in the summer we headed out on a big old Alpine roadtrip (check it out on Instagram #dirtsummerroadtrip) and had the privilege of visiting some very special trails, not least in Saas Grund, Switzerland. Check out the beautiful images in the video to get an idea of what we're talking about.

We were invited over by Richy Taylor, a Scot living the vagabond mountain biker/snowboarder lifestyle for some years now and who is involved with the keen local team of riders in the Saas valley who would like to see their destination put on the map for two wheels.

You'll be able to read all about it in our roadtrip feature, but for now take a look at the area and start salivating for singletrack... There are some true epics on offer in Saas Grund. We'll be back with the details later.

Thanks to Hohsaas and Saas Grund for the views and to Richy Taylor for the hosting.
