Info

Riding with AOSTA VALLEY FREERIDE means you ride with the LOCAL PEOPLE.

We know these mountains and their trails. GPS isn’t needed. Our guides will answer any of your questions about the territory, the culture and will gladly advise you on where to grab the best pizza or ice cream in town.

We strive to create a culture of warmth and authenticity in the alpine where the busy-ness of life is left behind and human connections become a priority. Not only are they good at their jobs, but they are just good at life.

It’s a matter of pride to offer you more than just a trip but a trip of your lifetime!

Just get here, leave the rest up to us!

The team

Bio

Aosta Valley Freeride’s story started in 2008. The idea was to ride together with our friends, sharing adventures and making new friends on the way. Each year we progressed a little, and in 2016 I decided to dedicate myself to it. Without any certainty, but with a vision. That vision was for something that didn’t exist yet, but I hoped that one day it would. What started as a vision I had myself is now shared by the whole AVF team, without whom, it wouldn’t be possible!

Hi everybody! I'm Fabrizio. Born and raised in Aosta Valley, I have been an avid biker since I was a child, and a mountain bike guide since 1997. I have explored and ridden most of the paths of this region, and published a book on mountain bike trails in Aosta Valley. Being a sports and nature addict, I love riding the single tracks of this amazing place and I can't wait to share my passion with you!

Hi! I’m Tom - a Scot who has been lucky enough to have lived in the Valle d’Aosta on and off since the year 2000. I’ve been a MTB guide all over Europe but find the endless trails, peaks and cols of the Valley the most inspiring place to be. The combination of amazing trails, the weather, and of course the food makes it the best place to live and ride for me - I can’t wait to show you around!

Mtb shaped my life and brought me to Aosta Valley, becoming my profession first as a racer, then as a coach and guide. Now I dedicate my summers to coaching and showing people around on bikes throughout this incredible alpine playground! Let’s ride!

I’m Nehuen, a MTB coach and guide based in Cogne, in the GranParadiso National Park. After years of racing in XC, I decided to dedicate myself to teaching and sharing my passion for cycling. I love being able to show the context in which I grew up: The Alps, Italian cuisine, and good wine and personally I think that the bike is the perfect way to do it! Besides that, I am a Business Economics student, I like to laugh and to entertain, listen to music and learn new things. “

I'm Pierre, I was born and grew up here in the Aosta Valley. I'm a photographer, a ski instructor, and an MTB guide. During the winter I'm always on my skis, doing ski touring, freeriding or simply working. But when the snow melts, I spend most time cycling - both on trails in my playground or maybe on a bike packing adventure discovering new lands. So yes, I love to be outdoors!

Hi my name is Luca, I was born in Aosta and have lived in his beautiful region ever. I spent 10 years as a ski racer, then a ski instructor specialising in free-ride and Telemark.
The bike has always been my other big passion, and in 2010 I became a Mountain-bike instructor as well, so I could share the pleasure of biking in this beautiful Valley. On the side, I’m a qualified Architect, and am training to become an Alpine Guide!

I am a UIAGM licensed Mountain Guide, an instructor of the Mountain Guides and the Mountain Rescuers with more than 20 years of experience in guiding clients all over the world. Cycling is my other passion, between competing in races when I was younger and being a Bike Guide as I am now. I ride my bikes as much as I can from MTB to road, from gravel to E-bike. The Aosta Valley is my preferred playground, but I never forget to bring my bike with me when I travel!
