Video: Rocky Hell Road By BasqueMTB

Doug from BasqueMTB sent us his latest video of a ride on “Rocky Hell Road” in the Basque countryside between Spain and France:

“Today my good friend Carlos and I took our Cove G-Spots up, and down, a local mountain. The descent is only around 1000m, however it is unrelentingly rocky and technical. Both climb and descent are a big physical challenge. Contrary to the soundtrack there are no “big jumps”, only normal mountain biking! … You can read more about this route over on the BasqueMTB website.”

(Note: the Basque countryside is in the northernmost part of Spain next to the border of France.)

  1. Just a mistake in the text: the Basque Country is not an independent country (today), it is an spanish region, so it is not between Spain and France. It IS Spain.

  2. “Basquian – 02/21/12 – 2:34am

    Funny, I’m pretty sure the narrator did that “mistake” on purpose, since a lot of people from the Basque area don’t consider themselves Spanish, or the Basque country part of Spain, even though it is.

  3. Thanks for the comments everyone! It was a fun ride. We actually rode from France, into Spain, back into France, into Spain a bit and then back into France. I guess that’s why the ride was described as between Spain and France. For what it’s worth I’m neither Basque, French or Spanish… I’m originally from beautiful Scotland although I now live in the Basque country 😉
