Video: Kurt Sorge at Chatel Mountain Style

2 August 2011

Last month Giant Factory Off-Road Team rider Kurt Sorge scored a podium finish at the Chatel Mountain Style freeride contest in France. Riding his Giant Faith, Sorge mastered the big drops, steep chutes and gap jumps, putting in a spectacular finals run to finish third.

Solos Productions followed the 22-year-old Canadian and produced this behind-the-scenes video that shows the travel, preparation, and mindset it takes to compete at one of the world’s premier freeride events.
