Awesome App. Just bought it for so many reasons. Poaching Victors angles on my visits may just be one of them :-) Seriously i have purchased so many out of date MTB tour books for ten times the price that just don't come close. Nice work Victor.

The App is designed from the ground up to make the most of the iPad - the interactive map shows 25 of the best riding locations throughout nine different countries - from the Downhill and Freeride resorts of the Alps, to Enduro rides in the Italian Riviera and on to the best Trail Centres in the UK and Ireland. Each location is reviewed in depth along with detailed trail statistics. Whether you’re into DH, Enduro, Freeride, XC or 4X - you’ll get the lowdown on what the riding is really like, the best trails and when to go.

I'm sponsoring a caption contest for the pic of the dude getting roosted! Winner gets a free pile of roost from my back wheel! I can roost it into a box and mail to you, or you can get low in a corner and just get hammered like this guy in the pic. Haha.
