RAW Mountain Biking
If you have seen the 2013 mountain biking movie NOTBAD, from Anthill Films (Darren McCullough, Darcy Wittenburg, Colin Jones) and the Trek C3 Project, you are familiar with the pro level of mountain biking and cinematography talent that was blended together. The NOTBAD film brought the likes of riders together such as Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Andrew Shandro, Brook MacDonald, Cam McCaul, Rene Wildhaber and Ryan Howard. This was truly an all star mountain biking bench.
In NOTBAD the riders and film crew meet up in New Zealand for what Anthills calls “Thirty Days of Bicycle Tomfoolery in New Zealand!”. For me, that translates into about 29 mins of pure mountain biking pleasure that is sure to get me out riding my bike. I literally wanted to slap on my gear and ride directly out of the garage to the nearest trail head!
NOT TO BE OUTDONE from their first act, Anthills films (Darren McCullough, Darcy Wittenburg, Colin Jones) and the Trek C3 Project followed the NOTBAD series up with NOT2BAD in June of 2016. This time they brought together pro mountain bikers Brandon Semenuk, Brett Rheeder, Cam McCaul, Ryan Howard, Casey Brown, Andrew Shandro, Gee Atherton, Rachel Atherton and Dan Atherton. Much like the Tomfoolery that occurred in New Zealand, the ride and film crew packed up and headed to spain this time around for what I’d like to call a true trail party of different mountain biking disciplines. Everything from downhill to slopestyle and enduro trail riding it’s all here mixed into one big shredit.
To get you stoked for the full movie Anthill recently released a full trail shredding segment RAW style. No soundtracks here. Nothing but the pure sound of tires on the dirt, acoustics of bike at full speed and the hooting and hollering of absolute riding enjoyment!
If that gets your blood pumping and you would like to watch the full NOT2BAD film you can head over Here. Not2Bad also is now available on iTunes, GooglePlay, Vimeo On Demand (4K), and more!
