Sarah from Blue Hippo Media got in touch the share with us their new film: Mountain Biking: The untold British story.
Mountain biking is now in it's 4th decade and it's come a long way from it's beginnings in the hills of the West Coast USA. But that's only part of the story. The UK MTB scene grew in parallel to the well told US tale and this documentary, shot and co-produced between Blue Hippo Media , singletrack magazine and BAFTA award winning film-maker Michael Clifford, lays out the unique history of how the MTB developed in British mud.
Featuring interviews with legendary names such as Tracy Moseley, Steve Peat, Dan, Gee and Rachel Atherton, Martyn Ashton, Rob Warner and Gary Fisher, this is the story of how the Brits have carved their names into MTB history and helped shape the global phenomenon that is mountain biking. It is a story that has never been told, until now.
"From quiet dreamers to absolute screamers, the U.K. puts it stamp on the Mountain bike story...5 stars " - Gary Fisher: US MTB pioneer
"Its wicked" - Rob Warner
The film has a 8.7 rating out of 10 on global film website IMDB. It is currently for sale on Vimeo or on Amazon Prime. We are also currently having the film put onto DVD which will be available through the Singletrack Shop in the next few weeks.
