The trailer for the new segment of “Strength In Numbers” is out now!
Strength in Numbers is an action sports film that explores mountain bike culture through the experiences of the world’s best riders. Anthill Films, in co-production with Red Bull Media House, have created a film, which will change the way the world sees mountain biking, both on and off the screen. The documentary combines progressive action and beautiful cinematography with compelling stories to show how the many different sides of mountain biking are all connected. The filmmakers, who brought you ‘The Collective’, ‘Roam’, ‘Seasons’ and ‘Follow Me’, traveled the globe to find communities that represented the many sides of the sport, with film shoots in British Columbia, Nepal, Scotland, Austria, Switzerland, California, Utah and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. For the crew and riders, Strength in Numbers represents a way to give back and progress the sport.
The movie features a diverse selection of riders with some of the biggest names in the sport, including: Andrew Shandro, Brandon Semenuk, Cam McCaul, Gee Atherton, Graham Agassiz, Matt Hunter, Rene Wildhaber, Thomas Vanderham and Wade Simmons. The cast consists of a mix of established pros, up and comers and local riders, with Anthony Messere, Adam Billinghurst, Rachel Atherton, Ryan Howard and Steve Smith also appearing in the film. “It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to see what the Anthill boys have put together”, says world cup downhill champion Gee Atherton. “For me, as a rider, it’s exciting to be part of something like this – it’s a chance to help progress and grow our sport.”
The world premiere of the film will be on April 20, 2012 in Monterey, CA, at the Sea Otter Bike festival followed by cinematic events all over the world. On May 24, Strength in Numbers will be available for all to experience with the free online premiere on redbull.com/bike and will be released afterwards on DVD+BluRay and iTunes worldwide. Ultimately, the film’s mission is to inspire and show how we are all part of a global community who love to ride. To do this, a basic version of the entire film will be streamed online for free in autumn 2012.
