Its the late 90s and trials legend Hans Rey is spending most of his year travelling the globe, featuring in commercials, meeting US presidents and competing at the highest level. Now, however, he is starting to feel that the past 20 years of trials riding, crashes and injuries are taking their toll on his body and mind. So, his mind is now flirting with whats next? Where to go? Where to settle down?
Throughout his travels there was always one place he was drawn to, Umbria in Italy. Returning here religiously when managing to grab those rare times off from his crazy life. This land-locked county in central Italy, known for its olive groves, vineyards and medieval hill towns, with villas washed in golden light by the warm long sunny days. Think of that classic book Under the Tuscan Sun.
To see just how far technology has changed and influenced the mountain bike scene Hans decided to revisit his old stomping grounds and experiences his favorite trails 20 years later to see for himself how his EP8-equipped GT Force AMP+ E-MTB tackles the Umbrian trails.
