Documentary Hits The Mark
If you are looking for death-defying
free-fall antics, insane jumps, even
more insane crashes and poaching illegal trails, this is not a movie for you.
If you want to check out the growing
legion of high school mountain bike
racers and the impact it can have on
their young lives, Singletrack High
This documentary, by brother filmmakers Isaac and Jacob Seigel-Boettner
who are Pedal Born Films, follows
a number of students, all from very
different backgrounds, as they move
through a season of racing. The most
telling aspect of the film is that you
do not have to be a mountain biker to
enjoy it. The brothers are great storytellers, and it is hard to imagine a better
mix of riders to follow.
Take a bow: Jacob (the bearded guy on the left) and Isaac (the
other bearded guy) take in the applause with some of the film’s
featured students at a screening in Monterey, California.
Throw a fundraiser: The National Interscholastic Cycling
Association (NICA) makes it easy to purchase a license to screen
Singletrack High. Get your club, team or friends together and raise
awareness for what high school mountain bike racing is all about.
Coming attractions: High school mountain bike racing has introduced a lot of young riders to mountain biking, and it is growing.
Singletrack High will do even more to accelerate that growth.
All In The Family
Big Bear’s Snow Summit Mountain is open for gravity riding again after nearly a decade of being closed.
While the wrecking crew was on hand snapping
photos, David Turner of Turner Bikes was on hand
with his whole family enjoying miles of singletrack.
Big Bear is an iconic spot for gravity riding and one of
very few spots in SoCal for gravity riders to get their
fix. We’re thrilled to have it back.
