The very first Greek DH edit is finally here and FREE TO WATCH (English CC subtitles). The film features the big name athletes from the first ever DH Open Cup and captures all the highlights from the season.

I had the opportunity to be at and film all seven races of the DH Open Cup and when the racing season was complete I traveled all over Greece to shoot more of the riding scene and interviewed many of the athletes and race directors from the series. After two trips to the mainland and days of editing I managed to make this documentary film to screen at the closing ceremony of the DH Open Cup.

Now I can finally can show it to the rest of the world so you can see what downhill is like for us here in Greece.

Enjoy..!

 Ah, Greece! I had the fortune of vacationing there for two weeks and spent the entire time daydreaming about biking. From the wicked back roads for an incredible road ride to the looming mountains around Athens, Thessaloniki, Meteora and Delphi. Even some crazy urban one potentials within Athens. Should have taken all my bikes!

 We have already had 2 urban DH races in Thessaloniki (2011-2012). Unfortunataly for 2013 there was no founding for the race to hapen. Check Yedi Kule Runaway on youtube!

 Emmanuel did a great job filming all the races from the 2013 DH cup, which took place for the very first time in Greece as a summation of 7 stages..! Great job bro! Can't wait for next season! RESPECT

 Excellent - thanks for sharing this. I hope the lovely country of Greece and it's lovely people recover soon from the financial problems. It would be awesome to see MTB tourism becoming big in Greece, and hopefully we will see World Cup events in Greece in the future.

 Great Movie Guys. I will be going to Crete in May. I will be staying near Rethimon and plan on renting a bike through Olympic bike and was wondering if anyone could give me any tips on the best trails to go riding around the area. I have looked on-line but the trails i have found all look a bit pedestrian. Cheers

 @lefranck: Downhill is pretty new and not widely known in Greece so the video has to present the local DH scene both to an international audience and also to the general public in Greece. I guess it has to have a bit of a story-telling element.
