A full length documentary about the preparation for the 2013 Downhill World Championships to show the real face of racing : commitment, doubts and hopes. Filmed over 14 months, it follows Mick and Tracey Hannah, Holly Feniak, Fabien Cousinié and Guillaume Cauvin during their preparation for Worlds.
Through training, bike development, injuries and World Cup races you will get an exclusive insight to the life of a racer.
Fabien Cousinié says : “It’s been a long time since the team wanted to make a real movie, the World Championships in South Africa were an unique opportunity to show to the mountain bike community how much of an adventure it is and what level of dedication it takes to try to be at the top.
One of the goals of this movie is to try to give visibility to our sport outside of the mountain bike world, to take it out of the industry, that’s why we are going to give this documentary to many TV channels around the world to show how beautiful, exciting and dramatic mountain biking can be and also show that sport is not only 22 guys running behind a ball on a perfectly mowed lawn! ”
The documentary will be available for free on Internet in October and will also be shown on partner TV channels.
