After Nico Vink fractured his wrist in episode 4 of Tales from the Soil he needed a little time to rest. Now he's back on it and fiending for some hard lines. He finds them in the French alps at the Chatel mountain bike park in Portes du Soleil. The Chatel bike patrol team has been working hard on the park this season and they have come up with some sick lines and jumps. One of Nico's favorite lines was called 'la serpentine'. The trail has an amazing flow and is really mellow but when Nico rode it fast there was suddenly a bunch of new lines and obstacles to get creative with. It was like a different trail altogether! After la serpentine Nico transitioned to some of the black trails that are more downhill style with loads of steep root sections. For a guy rehabbing a gimpy wrist Nico is KILLING it. This Was Supposed to Be a Mellow Line, then Nico Vink Showed Up | Tales From The Soil, Ep. 5
