Heaven is a place on Earth

I just got back from four fantastic days freeriding during the Åre Mountain Mayhem festival. The trails were spectacular and varied, ranging from fast berms and jumps through lovely technical singletrack to a few very nice downhill sections. We obviously spent most of our time riding, and since we do roll around in the dirt at times I’m not too inclined to riding with my camera equipment in my backpack. I did however find a few hours to spend behind the camera instead of behind the bars. Click the images for larger versions.

Unknown rider jumping on the “blue” slope Kälkspåret. Fast and popular trail with lots of berms and jumps. I’m personally more at home in more steep and technical sections… Like all the red and black trails. Good God, I want to live there!

Eject, Mailman, eject!

I have no idea what this is called, but it doesn’t look too healthy.

Tabletop.

Nohands backflip. Oh, and I’m clueless when it comes to dirtjumping. Feel free to correct me ;)

We’re already trying to figure out how we can squeeze in another trip to Åre during this semester. How can we possibly stay away?
