It’s easy to see why Cappadocia, Turkey captures the imagination. The breathtaking landscape doesn’t even look real – especially when the sky is filled with hot air balloons. The terrain also acts as a nearly unlimited canvas for the best mountain bikers in the world.

Following in the tire tracks of Kilian Bron and others, Kriss Kyle treats us to his latest edit. Somehow, the terrain looks even more otherworldly thanks to a fresh coating of snow. Kind of like the powdered sugar dusted onto Turkish Delight.


240 miles northwest of Gobekli Tepe lies the region of Cappadocia, Turkey. Millions of years ago this region was transformed by a series of volcanic eruptions, leaving layer upon layer of volcanic ash that compressed over millennia leaving behind this other-worldy landscape. In this mountain bike film Kriss Kyle tackles all 4 seasons in this strange and wonderful place.

Most of the area is unrideable due to aggressive dogs, unfortunately.
