Welcome to this week’s Midweek Movies. We’re going to kick it off with episode 2 of Transition Bike’s Lars n Bars. This time Lars is joined by Evil Bike’s Luke Strobel to make the super sickest and sweetest downhill bike video ever made. Ticks every downhill video cliche there is – the two bike crossover section is particularly brilliant.
Felix Urbauer’s Framed is a profile of Giant rider Andi Wittman and a pilot for a film he hopes to make. We really hope he does. Shot on he increasingly popular Red One amongst other things, it’s absolutely brilliant made and utterly inspiring. Looks like it’s shot in the Swiss Alps too…
The worst thing about Midweek Movies is having to watch videos made by people that live in sunny countries where the worst of the winter involves some dry, brown leaves. We’re not bitter. With this in mind, here’s a video made by Doug from Basque MTB, who’s been enjoying just such a winter…
Olly Townsend made this video of cyclocross riding on the South Downs during the dusty and beautiful summer we’re so far away from.
To counteract the ‘cross, here’s Travis Pastrana ragging it up the seven miles of the Mt Washington hillclimb in his Red Bull Subaru. Quite. Fast.
