Next stop was a place called Sospel. Located about 45 minutes from nice by car and about 2 hours in the camper. Sospel is Fabian Barel's stomping ground but surprisingly there was very little info or riders to be seen. The map that you can find at the tourism office ended up being very helpful and the trails were some of the best that we got to experience. Steep and exposed would be the best terms to describe the trails in the area. The trail pictured was one of the longer tours and the descent started from a world war two camp that was littered with bullet holes and was really cool to see.
