STRENGTH IN NUMBERS: Whistler segment now online for freeAugust 7th, 2012 by admin received Comments Off Tweet
The complete Whistler segment from Anthill Films and Red Bull Media House’s community film project, “STRENGTH IN NUMBERS” is now available!
Speaking of mountain bike communities, there is no way to ignore British Columbia’s gravity epicenter and virtual cradle of mountain bike park culture. Of course Whistler is part of Strength in Numbers – it might even be the strongest example of a pure mountain bike community. Like a die-hard surfers living close to the beach, passion-driven riders from all over the world are building a bike-based community around the world famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
Presented through the eyes of local rider Adam Billinghurst, the Whistler segment will make you understand the passion and feel of this almost mystic place. Working all winter so he can ride all summer, Billinghurst is a purest – riding only for the love of the sport. Adam’s outlook is simple, “My future involves more biking, some ups, some downs, then death”. The segment also features appearances from Whistler’s own FMB World Tour champ Brandon Semenuk, DH racers Chris Kovarik and Claire Buchar, and 9-year old phenom Finn Finestone.
