New freeride film Where the Trail Ends has its world premiere at the Interbike show in Las Vegas on the evening of September 19. UK insomniacs can watch it live and for free over the Interwebs at 4.30 am on Thursday September 20.
Can’t drag yourself out of bed that early? It’ll be available for 24 hours at Red Bull’s Where The Trail Ends site.
Where The Trail Ends follows Darren Berrecloth, Cameron Zink, Kurt Sorge, James Doerfling, Andreu Lacondeguy and half a dozen others on a three-year trip all over the world in search of spectacular locations and what we believe the kids call ‘sick lines’.
A 4.5 minute trailer was released a few weeks ago:
Locations include the Andean foothills of Salta, Argentina, China’s Gobi Desert, Nepal’s near-secret Mustang region, British Columbia’s Fraser River and Virgin, Utah, areas producer Freeride Entertainment calls “big mountain freeriding’s punishing proving grounds and birthplace.”
The film-makers followed the riders using jet boats, helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, and mounted Contour HD video cameras on the riders themselves, using “the most advanced filmmaking and sound equipment ever used in this genre.”
“The experience of making the film is something viewers will see first-hand. It’s the story of what it took to get there. And what it was like to experience the ultimate ride,” says Darren Berrecloth. “We went into regions almost entirely unknown. And we often never knew whether we’d succeed or fail, or worse.”
