After being confined for 62 days, it would take more than rain and mist to keep Kilian Bron at home for one more day. The man known for his creative and ambitious ‘Missions’ was hungry for a good session. The target was the Parmelan, a famous stony plateau, composed of torturous trails and steep slopes, not so far from Annecy (France). It was the perfect technical challenge for this first mission after the lockdown. It’s Kilian’s recipe of how to find freedom again between the rocks and rain.

“MY IDEA WAS TO DO A MISSION POST-LOCKDOWN, NO MATTER THE WEATHER”
TOLD US KILIAN. WITH THE MIST, THE RAIN, THE DARKNESS, IT WAS JUST A UNIQUE MOOD FOR THIS FIRST RIDE.
“I DID SOME TRIAL BIKE AT HOME TO IMPROVE MY SKILLS. I WAS ABLE TO WORK ON SOME TECHNIQUES I’M NOT USED TO OR I DON’T HAVE TIME TO TRY. NORMALLY I’M ALWAYS BUSY BECAUSE OF MY TRIPS, ORGANISING THE PROJECTS, THE SHOOTINGS, WRITING ARTICLES, AND HANDLING VIDEO EDITING…”
IT’S A KIND OF RECONNECTION WITH THE ALPINE TERRAIN HE LOVES ABOVE ALL.
THE PERFECT GROUND TO TRAIN HIS NEW SKILLS.
YOU NEED SOME SKILLS WHEN YOU NEED TO TACKLE THIS TERRAIN AND WHEN THE UPHILL IS DONE IT’S TIME FOR THE BIKE ON THE SHOULDERS.
After frustrating times, Kilian is back on track with a lot of projects in mind. Like he says:
“I'M LOOKING TO FIND THE RIGHT IDEAS AND PUT EVERYTHING IN PLACE TO DO IT”
Stay tuned for more Missions to come!
