RENÉ WILDHABER AT MOUNT CAMEROON
Perspactives Ambassador René Wildhaber is slowly moving apart from MTB racing to spend his time on other projects like filming edits or teaching kids how to ride a bike at his sport camp “Wildi’s Füchse”. One of his latest projects was the trip to Mount Cameroon, the biggest mountain in West Africa. Check out the video!
First work, then pleasure!
Hiking uphill for three days doesn’t sound that inviting! But comparing that to riding downhill for the next two days seems alright, I guess. As someone once said, first work, then pleasure. Together with professional mountainbike rider Alban Aubert and filmmaker/photographer Antonin Pergod, René took the challenge to climb the 4.095 feet tall Mt. Cameroon: bad weather, cold temperatures, starving and carrying bikes for ages. But all that struggle is worth it when enjoying the view on the Atlantic Ocean and the ride down. Riding downhill at Mt. Cameroon means enjoying a variety of beautiful nature with quite unfamiliar surfaces like lava rocks, jungles or deserts. Finishing the ride at the coast, where you can instantly go for a swim is for sure a highlight, you’re not getting everywhere.
