- Recommend me a sports documentary…
I normally recommend The Barkley Marathons on Netflix as it is just a good documentary – prob 3rd time I’ve mentioned it on here. Finding Traction is also a good watch about an ultra runner pushing her limits, which I found fascinating.
[Edit] Maidentrip has just popped up on my recommendations too, which is the self documented story of the 14 year old sailing the globe – you might remember it in the news at the time. Really inspirational.Posted 2 years agospacemonkeyMember

Never heard of this until now. Just had a look at some footage and one of her talks. Absolutely insane. Going to hunt down the film.Posted 2 years agosofaboy73Member
Red army – film about Russian ice hockey in the 70’s and 80’s at the height of the Cold War and Russia’s almost military approach to sport at the time. A lot more interesting than it sounds
Unchained: the story of freestyle motorcross – about the underground / alternative motorcross ‘Krusty’ scene in the 80’s and 90’s away from all the glitz and showmanship of stadium motorcross.
Dark horse – a bar maid in a poor Welsh valleys town convinces the locals to form a syndicate and buy a race horse, they can only afford a nag that everyone else had written off and goes on to do rather well. Uplifting story about how sport springs people together and takes them away from their day to day troubles
Tracks – not a documentary, but a bio pic of a young girl who decides to buy and train camels and walk them across the Australian desert. Bit of a similar dynamic to maiden voyage
Second for valley up rising and maiden voyage.Posted 2 years agotorsoinalakeMember
If you want to see people pushing limits during the birth of a new sport, Signal Hill Speed Run on Redbull.tv. It’s the story of the first downhill skateboard race.
Redbull.tv is a good place for sports films generally.Posted 2 years ago

That k2 and Splinters look good, I have already seen the Barkley marathons and enjoyed it, also seen ride the divide (and the other films by the same guy) enjoyed the cinematography but found something off with the presentation of the people. I think there is a better film to be made about that style adventure riding.
@Paton why not actually recommend something, rather than just spamming with everything you can find on youtube.Posted 2 years ago
