It’s not racing downhill on his mountain bike that makes Harald Philipp smile. Nor does he care whether he adds the most dangerous jumps and turns to his trails. When he’s on his bike on a ´via ferrata´ in the Dolomites, he is hunting something else: flow. That special state of being where everything´s just right, when confidence overrides fear and the bike and rider are one. What exactly is this perfect moment? How do we reach it? And can you only find it on a mountain bike? Harald has found his answer – and we are invited to join the ride.
