Riding the Best Enduro Trails at Sentiers du Moulin

Mountain Biking at Sentiers du Moulin
Étienne Dionne

" Sentiers du Moulin is a mountain biking heaven " once said Brian Kennedy, a popular mountain biking vlogger… Mountain biking heaven? That’s quite a claim from someone who makes a living riding the best mountain bike trails in the world, he has seen a lot!  But I tend to agree with Brian, the riding at Sentiers du Moulin has something special to it.

For this last shooting, we were joined by Adréane Lanthier Nadeau, also known as ALN, who was on vacation after a busy few months racing the EWS. She spent lots of time riding at Sentiers du Moulin as a youth and she was pleased to get to ride the newest trail with local trail builder Nic Sauvé.

The weather conditions were less than ideal with rain, hail, freezing rain, snow and a nasty windchill but we proceeded with our shooting, starting at the “Summit 1” to ride the popular KingKong, SuperG and Basse SuperG.

The next day was all about Wolverine, Nic's latest creation. This new trail is the first to be officially built on Mont Tourbillon. It’s the first step of an ambitious project aimed at integrating mountain biking into an outdoor recreation real-estate project called the Maelström.

To shoot that day wasn’t easy. With the windchill, it felt like -15°C, cold enough to render the bikes useless for a few hours. We had to regroup in a chalet to warm the bikes and hope for the sun and wind to collaborate. And they did!

An hour later, we were back on the trail. This new zone is strongly characterized by its granite. The whole mountain feels like a big rock pile covered with moss, hiding crazy lines and perfect slabs… It’s the perfect playground for creative trail builders.
