Wheels turn where they’ve never turned before, in a film that will redefine Freeride Mountain Biking

A new era of action sports film in the 21st century will spin further into the future than ever before with the release of “Where The Trail Ends” this fall. Produced by Red Bull Media House, in association with Freeride Entertainment, the movie is set to be a global cycling spectacle unlike anything ever captured on film.

“Where The Trail Ends” was crafted over three years with the most advanced filmmaking and sound equipment ever used in this genre. The film immerses viewers in an extraordinary chronicle of exploration, chaos and culture, set amongst some of the globe’s most harrowing and remote natural landscapes. Inspired by Red Bull Media House’s extraordinary “The Art of FLIGHT” snowboarding documentary, this is the soul and science of exploration as defined by two wheels. “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 rider Darren Berrecloth, considered one of the world’s preeminent free riders. “We went into regions almost entirely unknown. And we often never knew whether we’d succeed or fail, or worse.”


Veterans of Freeride’s heralded 10-year New World Disorder film series, athletes and production crews were left physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted after the film’s expeditions to dispatches amongst the Andean foothills of Salta, Argentina, China’s Gobi Desert, Nepal’s near-secret Mustang region, the towering shorelines of British Columbia’s Fraser River and Virgin, Utah – big mountain freeriding’s punishing proving grounds and birthplace. Freeride’s crews created the project’s remarkably compelling tone, footage and narrative using the highest performance tools in film as well as an array of transportation and perspectives, from jet boats, helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, to the riders themselves. Partnerships with Contour (www.contour.com), hands-free HD video cameras, and Specialized Bikes were vital to the project’s success. “This is a story coming from the riders themselves,” remarked Geoff Rogers, Specialized Bikes Marketing Manager. “It’s authentic and innovative, the way it should be.”

“Where The Trail Ends’” storyline follows professional mountain bikers Berrecloth, Cameron Zink, Kurt Sorge, James Doerfling, Andreu Lacondeguy and another half dozen of the world’s top freeriders on both a timeless, epic adventure and an entertainment undertaking unparalleled, charting the course to the sport’s uncompromised destiny.
