Search for the Steep, Episode 2: Lake Garda

 

Joe Barnes is joined by trials legend Chris Akrigg on his latest mission to ride the world’s steepest descents.

Travelling to Lake Garda, Italy, the two go in search of the illusive 122 trail, that some said would challenge even the formidable talent of Akrigg himself.

The long hike in changeable weather brings its rewards as the guys are presented with a steep, technical descent where Chris’ trials skills prove more than useful.

 

Video: Got Anything Steeper?

Johannes Pistrol rides the Steinerne Rinne from Goinger Halt, July 2014.

The upper section from the summit down to the upper rinne is relatively straight forward, albeit slightly exposed.

The lower section contains the hardest and the most futuristic riding. Johannes didn’t clear all sections but this attempt is the most I have seen ridden so far.
