Xavier heads to his home resort and brings the gnarl as ever...

The Pyrenees is where Xavier De Le Rue spent his formative years, but rarely has he had the opportunity to go back to the peaks that captured his youthful imagination. However, a big storm was forecast, which meant that Xavier could seize the opportunity and head for the motherland.

Aulon is a tiny, remote village near to St. Lary, with inexhaustible riding opportunities straight out of the door. Xavier seizes the moment to explore these with brother Francois, hunting out adventures, in what feels like their own private playground.

Riding with brother Polo, the excellent conditions meant that they could push the boundaries far more than a childhood Xavier could ever have imagined.
