Like many people around the world, the residents of French resort Les Deux Alpes were plunged into uncertainty and lockdown after being hit with COVID-19 last spring. Instead of baking banana bread or running 5k’s, a group of local riders decided to film a movie showing off their hometown.
Known predominantly for its large glacier and slushy summer sessions, the Covi_Quoi crew showed a whole different side of L2A. Their insider knowledge and intimate familiarity with the town cracks it wide open for a smorgasbord of hidden street gems.
It may not have been the season anyone had planned, but these guys sure as hell made the most of it. We’re stoked to see what they bring to the table over the next few years.
