Day 1 of Shadow’s KIL Tour in France is over and it was amazing. We started in Lyon at the newly opened Bros. Bike Store, headquarters to the Sparky’s France crew. After a good lunch, the crew consisting of Simone Barraco, Joris Coulomb, Scott Ditchburn, Paul Ryan, and Nico Badet headed out to get some clips.
Spots in Lyon are nuts. Any kind of ledge and rail set up you could ask for. We can’t wait to show you the footage. 9 hours of straight riding and the crew was beat so we headed to Vapiano’s and called it a night. Scroll down and check out some behind the scenes shots from our guide Lilian Conry.

Simone starting off a dialed line with a steezy nosebonk to switch bar.
The crew checking the footage.
French Shadow pro Joris Coulomb put down a wild combo on this rail at the start of the day. No way you’ll be able to figure this one out.
You can see it on everyone’s faces that it was definitely an unexpected banger. Hell yeah Joco!
One of Shadow’s newest recruits Nico Badet put down a couple of interesting lines in a style that only he can call his own. His pegless grinding abilities are out of this world.
Simone put down a couple of rad tricks on this super fat hand rail including this crank arm.
