Jan. 22 and 23
Meet fellow bikers, join a club, look at the latest accessories and watch a great movie about Olympic bicycling hopefuls!
Filmmakers Ken Bell and Jason Berry spent the summer of 2004 documenting eight competitive mountain bikers chasing a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski, Toss Wells, Adam Craig and Jeremiah Bishop were competing for two spots on the men's team. Mary Ann McConneloug, Sue Haywood, Alison Dunlap and Shonny Vanlandingham were vying for one spot on the women's team. The filmmakers followed them to the Pan American Mountain Bike Championship in Ecuador, where they rode amazingly steep switchbacks in rotten weather, to the Scottish Highlands to Austria. Interviews providing an inside view of the politics of the Olympics and some great riding footage guarantee all you bikers will not want to miss this.
I got this DVD as a xmas present, but unfortunately have not been able to watch it yet. But from what I've read around here on MTBR, it is a very good documentary!
