Kendal Mountain Festival Premiere Trek’s New ‘Going in’ Film

by 0

It’s the Kendal Mountain Festival next weekend and, first off, there are still about three tickets left for the main bike night, so snap them up while they’re still around.

Our lungs hurt just looking at this shot…

Trek is the main sponsor of this year’s Kendal Mountain Festival Bike Night, taking place on Friday 15th November at 7.30pm. It’s always a great gathering of cycling characters and great films, this year hosted by Rob Warner and Tracy Moseley. This year, though, Trek has a film of its own, called ‘Going in’ which features some great footage from all of its sponsored athletes and the lengths they’ve gone to in their training and racing.

This new ‘Going In’ film will premiere (a World Premiere, no less!) on Saturday 16th in a matinee showing as part of the Kendal Mountain Festival, so if you’re up there for the weekend of culture, it’s going to be worth taking in. There are currently plenty of tickets (as it’s only just been announced) so if you miss out on Bike Night, there’s still a chance to get inspired by a bike film.

Here’s a quick teaser for you:

Not to mention the Rough Stuff Fellowship will be having a slide show on the Saturday morning too, so why not make a day of it? Or a weekend, even?

Chipps wasn’t around for the dawn of mountain biking in the UK, but he likes to claim that he arrived in time for second breakfast (about the time he shows up for work, then…) starting in the bike trade in 1990 and becoming a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the subsequent quarter century, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)

His riding style is best described as ‘medium, wheels on the ground, trail riding’ though he’s been spotted doing everything from endurance downhill racing to 24 hour cross country racing. He favours mid-travel trail bikes and claims to be wheel-size, gear, brake and tyre agnostic. In fact, his garage spans most bicycle flavours, taking in steel hardtails, carbon trail bikes, even a mountain bike tandem, along with road, touring and gravel/cyclocross bikes.

While he’s happy to chat about bikes all day, his real interest is in the people and places that bikes can introduce you to and he talks as fondly about the trails he’s ridden and riders he’s met as the bikes that took him there.
