Fancy an exclusive screening of the best bits from the one of most influential mountain biking video series ever made followed up by an interview with one of the greatest riders mountain biking has known? Course you do.
As part of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, taking place from the 4th to the 6th of March, there will be a world exclusive showcase of scenes from Alex Rankin’s iconic Sprung and Earthed series. The screening, taking place on the 5th, will document the rapid development of mountain biking as well as showcasing the developments in adventure film making. Following that, Steve Peat will be hosting a Q&A session discussing how he has managed to stay on top in a rapidly progressing sport and how he sees it developing in the future.

There will also be a short film competition, so check out the website for details how to submit your work.
If you prefer to ride your own bike rather than watch other people, then thisisheffield, CGCC and Ride Sheffield are also planning some kind of gravity fed race that will be held during the day – details of this event will be announced shortly on www.thisisheffield.co.uk
As always at SHAFF there will be an after party held in the Showroom bar – for details check out the SHAFF website…
