Video: Fabien Barel Presents…Episode #4
Surfing the dirt, high in the alps, with Brook McDonald
By Vernon Felton
This marks the fourth episode of Fabien Barel presents and if you’re just tuning in now. the gist is that the three-time downhill World Champion rides with some of the world’s best gravity racers in amazing locales that make the rest of us sick with envy. This video is no exception, and since it takes place high in the alps, it has a definite euro flavor to it. Cured meats, bottles of red wine…yeah, I pack all that stuff in my CamelBak too…
In this episode, Barel rides with Brook MacDonald, who went on to win World Cup downhill at Val d’Isere just a few days after shooting wrapped.
