Anthill Films has made available a five-minute slice of mountain bike movie Strength in Numbers for free.
Set in the legendary Canadian mountain biking mecca of Whistler, British Columbia, the segment features local rider Adam Billinghurst; Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour champ Brandon Semenuk; downhill racers Chris Kovarik and Claire Buchar; and leading candidate for the title of World’s Gnarliest Nine-year-Old Finn Finestone.
The segment evokes the passion that Whistler engenders among the riders who flock there every summer and the community that’s made it home. Billinghurst is a good example. Working all winter so he can ride all summer, Billinghurst is a purist – riding only for the love of the sport.
His outlook is simple: “My future involves more biking, some ups, some downs, then death.” Not immediately after or during the riding bit, we hope.
Want your own copy of the whole thing? You can get the Collectors Edition 3-in-1 combo pack from Anthill Films.
