Mountain biking is now in its 4th decade – and it’s come a long way from its 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 with the BAFTA award winning Blue Hippo Media, aims to lay out the complete and unique history of how the MTB developed in British mud.
“It’s a story that’s never been told before”
Through archive footage of early XC racing, through to the modern adrenaline-fueled disciplines of Enduro, this film will layout the British claim to the origins of the modern mountain bike scene. Featuring interviews with legendary names such as Rob Warner, Tracy Moseley, Martyn Ashton, Carlton Reid, Brant Richards, Chipps Chippendale and many more, this will be the story of how the Brits have carved their names into history, and helped shape the global phenomenon that is mountain biking.
