In recent years mountain biking has turned into entertainment as well as sport. From the far corners of our planet MTB is becoming a way of life for lots of people. This is the idea behind "Another country". The aim of this project is to travel across "different" countries, making them more attractive for our big, yet still young action sport.

After two trips across Russia resulting in the movies "Your Peak" and "Your Peak 2" this winter we move on to Israel. Over two weeks we try to cover the most interesting and beautiful places in this ancient land. With the help of Israel's ministry of tourism we'll get to know not only the best bike routes, but also the cultural and common life of this country. The goal of the whole trip is to create a new movie about bike-tourism and, in near future, bike-tours around Israel.

We want to present the possibility of biking and relaxing in Israel. In our opinion nowadays there are plenty of bike movies showing strong riders and their undoubtedly amazing skills, but not enough films the adventure lover in all of us could identify with. "I can do that. I want to go there!" - these are the words of excitement we want to ignite! We will continue to travel, to discover new countries and hopefully delight you with new movies. Now get out there and ride!

 I'm in Israel right now for three months. Getting to know the bike community here and around the world is sick! The trails are fun for sure but there's not many riders and even less builders. There are better trails than this video shows. Good idea and exposure pb!

 Love the concept but would of been much better with more footage on the trails, like a good section of the sugar trail would have been perfect.

 Nice video! Nice place! Nice everything!
I live almost on the border between Italy and France and i really hope, one day, to have a so Nice Wall between our countries because when I accidentally cross the border it smells pretty awful! It should be due to baguettes :-S

 Awesome vid, was riding around Beit She'an a few years ago with a group from Ein Hanatziv. Riding on ancient aqueducts, historical valleys through hidden springs. Had a great time followed by great food and beers.
