Between The Tape is the new film by Clay Porter, following the Downhill World Cup series to combine race action with a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a top rider.
Or as the official blurb has it:Shot on five continents, 15 countries and documenting the 2006 UCI World Cup Downhill Series, Between The Tape is a truly international affair. From the first round in Vigo to the beaches of Brazil to the scenery of New Zealand then back to Europe for the finals in Austria, Between the Tape is World Cup downhill racing like you’ve never seen it before. Between The Tape features the world’s best doing what they do best – race the clock between the tape.
And if you’re anywhere near Birmingham this weekend then you can check out the film for yourself – the exclusive UK premiere will be on Saturday 28 April in the Walkabout pub, Broad Street, Birmingham. Start is 8pm and it’s an over-18 only venue.
