Watch the Xtreme Verbier From Rider’s Perspective

The Bec des Rosses is in its "easiest" sections no less than 45 degrees steep, but in the upper, most exposed triangle between 55 to 60 degrees. Therefore, absolute control of speed and landings is a crucial must, any mistake could have fatal consequence. Finding your way in the rocky maze just from memorising your line from the opposite side, then turning that picture upside down and recognising specific landmarks is yet another challenge…
Follow four times Xtreme Verbier winner Xavier De Le Rue on a crazy ride – which will make your own heartbeat go up a notch, even though this is still one of the "mellower" lines on the Bec des Rosses…
