You know that feeling when everything comes together and you’re just flying on the bike? When the flow takes you and it’s like the rules of physics don’t quite apply?
This utterly mad video takes that sensation to the next level as French rider Kilian Bron hitches a rider with his paragliding friend Eliot Nochez, soaring above snow-covered slopes and pulling a cheeky touch-and-go on the roof of a chairlift terminal.
Matthew Loveridge (formerly Allen) is an experienced mechanic and an expert on bike tech who appreciates practical, beautifully-engineered things. Originally a roadie, he likes bikes and kit of every stripe, and he's tested a huge variety of both over the years for BikeRadar, Cycling Plus and others. For a long time Matthew's heart belonged to the Scott Addict, but he's currently enjoying Specialized's sublime Roubaix Expert and having a torrid affair with a Giant Trance e-MTB. At 174cm tall and 53kg, he looks like he should be better at cycling than he actually is, and he's ok with that.
