Just caught the last half hour, thanks for the heads up on the repeat – have set it to recordPosted 3 years ago
Watched this last night – absolutely brilliant!Posted 3 years ago
Would have been nice to have got a heads up from STW towers, would have thought they’d like more people to appreciate their work. Shame they kept the price so high, if it had become available at a fiver I would have purchased.Posted 3 years ago
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.Posted 3 years ago
It’s on again tonight and again tomorrow morning at 8.45 am, red button fans.Posted 3 years ago
I thought it was the most boring, amateur thing I’ve watched in years. Was pretty excited about seeing it, but just seemed to completely miss the target IMO.Posted 3 years ago

I did wonder the same, gets up to the JMC era then jump ahead to Martin Aston’s section and end quiet abruptly.Posted 3 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 3 years ago
I was disappointed that there was so much material about racing rather than what most of us do. However I can see that there’s likely to be a lot less material from which to make a movie.Posted 3 years ago
Racing used to be a massive thing though, so made sense in terms of the history of UK MTB.
If anything there wasn’t enough lake jumping involved.Posted 3 years ago
No mention at all of Jo Burt.Posted 3 years ago

I caught some of it the other week but not all.Posted 3 years ago
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 3 years ago
Surprised there was no mention of the Essex winter race series. Surely this was the precursor to the modern XC scene.Posted 3 years ago
Good to see Apps though.
A certain ‘doctorish’ forum member is in said film..?
Ginger bearding it on his heardtail with Rob Warner, with a little slo-mo tech section of him too…
Say it isn’t so.. 😉
(though I enjoyed the filming, I did find the film pretty boring…there..I said it!!)Posted 3 years ago
