The Moment Movie - Teaser is Here!

Date Sep 14, 2017

In the backwoods of British Columbia, Canada, three small, dedicated crews of adventure seekers were quietly changing the course of a sport and carving their paths in history. And it was all happening unbeknownst to each other, the cycling world, and ultimately themselves. 

"The Moment" is a feature length documentary about the birth of freeride mountain biking that features the mountain bikers and filmmakers who rose up, challenged the status quo, and turned the sport of cycling on its head. Directed by former pro mountain biker-turned-filmmaker Darcy Hennessey Turenne, this film is a comprehensive look at how the sport began, told by the characters who lived it first hand.

There is a kickstarter set up to support the final production costs of the film. I'd say this is a solid investment because the footage I've seen is rad.

For more on the movie check out our interview with filmmaker Darcy Turenne here...

A lot of the scenes are hairball by any standard, but when you consider they are riding with V-brakes and either hardballs or rudimentary suspension bikes they are insane. Photo - Eric Berger

I'm going to be referring to my Hardtail as a Hardball from now on, superb typo.

This doc looks amazing, looking forward to it.

Damn, was just going to comment on that. I think it would take hardballs to ride that terrain on any bike from that day, but especially a hardtail.

Can't wait to buildup my custom hardball in the coming months... Wait. No, that just doesn't work.

I took my Hardball out for a hoon yesterday.

If you can keep on top of it it's super rewarding, but try to cruise off the back or lose focus and that Hardball will spank you.
