REVIEW - Where The Trail Ends...

There are some good mountain bike films out there... Klunkerz is a great one. The "Earthed" series is great too (with 2 being the best). and a few others. Up until now, "Strength In Numbers" had always been my favorite. It was by far the most adventurous of the lot.

Enter "Where The Trail Ends" by Red Bull Media House.

This is a great movie. Some of the worlds best DH/Freeriders set out on an expedition across the globe to find lines and terrain that no one has ever ridden.

This flick follows Darren Berrecloth, Cameron Zink, Kurtis Sorge, James Doerfling, Andreu Lacondeguy and others as they blast down the sides of mountains in Utah, Canada, China, Argentina, and Nepal.

What I really like about this movie (aside from great HD footage and a Berrecloth super slow-mo 360 cliff drop) is that it gives the feeling of true adventure. From sleeping in tents to losing luggage, to trips to hospitals, this movie just crushes it.

My favorite scenes are shot in China's Gobi Desert... There the guys find gold... unlike anything that they've ever ridden before. Of course Utah is great too, and all of the crash scenes, but I don't wanna spoil it for you. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and get it.
