Freeride Entertainment's latest and greatest mountain bike film, NWD 8 "Smack Down", will have it's Vancouver screening at the Sonar Night Club this Thursday Oct. 11th. Freeride has spent the last year travelling to such exotic locations as Israel, Argentina, Europe, Utah and of course BC to capture the most progressive and scenic riding in the world. Shot on Super 16mm and High Definition,the film stars British Columbia and Vancouver locals Ben Boyko, Robbie Bourdon, Darren Berrecloth, Wayne Goss, Kurt Sorge, Wade Simmons and Richie Schley. Along with the rest of the world's best racers, freeriders and dirt jumpers, have thrown down their best moves to create New World Disorder 8.
"Scenes from Kokanee Crankworx 2007, heli-biking in the Chilcotin Range and ex world champion Fabien Barel shredding the Whistler Mountain Bike Park are a few of the highlights," says Chris Lawrence, Freeride's tour manager. Freeride Entertainment, based out of Nelson BC, has been producing heavy hitting, award winning mountain bike and action sports productions for the last 10 years. With over 2,000 people in attendance Lawrence and the rest of the crew hosted the world premiere of the film last week in Las Vegas at the annual Interbike bicycle trade show.
"The movie this year is mesmerizing, you can't stop watching it. We had people stand at our booth in Vegas for 3 hours." The film will now screen in 70 cities around the world. "Vancouver is one of our biggest premieres because of all the local riders." Most of the above mentioned riders will be in attendance at the Sonar Club screening which will also include the musical talents of the RED BULL Eh! Team DJs from Montreal.
