- PSA: untold British mtb story on bike channel now.
Was this the full film? Finally finished watching it this morning but it seemed to lurch from Tim Manley era MBUK to Danny MacAskill pretty suddenly and then was finished. I wasn’t ready for it to end.
I did wonder the same, gets up to the JMC era then jump ahead to Martin Aston’s section and end quiet abruptly.Posted 2 years ago
TBF there’s a huge amount of material to cover off in and hour and a half, I’d quite happily watch a film entirely about JMC (I wore out my first copy of dirt), so I suppose it’s inevitable that it would seem a bit short.
OK though, made me want to bikepacking, and it made my miss the old slag heap they built an industrial estate on where I grew up. Probably for the best though, I ended up in hospital more than once after rides over there.Posted 2 years agodragonMember
I was disappointed that there was so much material about racing rather than what most of us do.
But in the context of British early mtbing then racing was huge, Malverns had race numbers in the thousands (and later the early 24 hour races). It was also XC racing that tended to dominate the likes of MBUK and MBI up until the mid 90’s at least. Then later XC trail centers started and these were covered. So from a history point of view I think they did cover what most people at the time were doing, obviously there will always be people who weren’t into the race scene and to them it won’t necessarily represent their mtb history.Posted 2 years ago
