Tim and myself recently attended a Mountainbike Guide course and it was GREAT. Must say, expectations were slightly different from what the actual weekend was. We had our bikes set and were ready for a couple of days of shredding & ripping but instead we were dealing with a complete other side of mountainbiking and that’s: “guiding“.
‘Fonce’ comes from the French verb ‘Foncer’ meaning “Giving it all you got!”. It’s something we yell at eachother at the start of a special stage or technical section as a sort of encouragement. With Fonce we literally want to give it all we got, to get people on the bike and make them a happy biker … yes that sounds mellow but it’s real :-)
