Major Mountain Bike Movie Hits the Road
Sterling Lorence/Anthill Films
After two years in production Anthill Films recently debuted its latest film, Strength in Numbers, at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterrey.
The film is a high-production-value action-sports documentary that aims to bring together the wide spectrum of the mountain bike universe under one tent—from dirt-jumpers to XC racers to freeride and slopestyle athletes. The sport is seen from the perspective of pro riders and enthusiastic amateurs alike.
Some of mountain biking’s most iconic locations are featured—the deserts of Utah, the downhill mountain bike park of Whistler, British Columbia, and the dirt jumps of Aptos, California—as are more exotic places like Nepal, including the urban jungle of Kathmandu and remote trails that seldom see mountain bikes.
The April 20 premiere kicked off a month of screenings hosted by mountain bike clubs and bike shops in North America and worldwide. Click here for a tour schedule, which includes 30 U.S. dates, as well as showings in Canada and Europe.
