Easter has been often been used as key time to get away on a mountain bike holiday. When you return you are often charged and excited to plan the next holiday – putting out emails, searching for locations and teeing up everyone’s calendar.
Getting inspiration for the trail riders out there can often be difficult with the majority of mtb films aimed at the downhill/freeride set. Relating to tail whips and back flips on dirt jumps or riding 20ft drop offs and bridges can be difficult when your flat out trying to pop a mono – amazing vision yes, but not as close to home, as you would like.
The clips below showcase talented cinematographers that bring the trail riding elements to life – flowing trails, amazing scenery and technical bike skills – utilising innovative camera angles, carefully selected music and an interwoven story behind the vision.
See below a selection of videos and trailers, featuring trail and all mountain riding to inspire you and keep you going until the next mtb holiday – Enjoy!
