EPISODE COMMENCAL INSIDERS #7: Pierre-Edouard Ferry in Kathmandu
This one is a bit of a beast, we published the trailer last week which looked really good, and there is plenty of great riding in here too. It’s a story about Pierre building a pump track in Kathmandu, so be warned, there is plenty of not so awesome riding in it. It does show case the good that bikes and riders can do around the world though, and for that reason we are endorsing it!

“Far away from the cliche of a wild Nepal, which would be ideal for a backpacking trip, our shaper and rider Pierre-Edouard Ferry went on to share his knowledge and expertise with Kathmandu’s youngsters. In a city where paradox are found at every corner and which teems with life in a dooms day atmosphere, pumptrack riding can be perceived as the symbol of a whole new generation of Nepalese riders for whom riding is a means of escape. The wheel is spinning in Nepal.”
