 watched it last night. MSP made my two favorite ski films so I was pretty stoked to see their new bike film. The cinematography is great. The locations are great. IMO the movie overall is ok. It's really slow, which in some ways is a nice change from most bike movies. WAY too much slow-mo, though. Pretty much the entire Kate Courtney/Will Patterson section is slow-mo. it was nice to watch once, but I doubt I'll watch it again.

 Not available in your country - well that sucks. You need to figure out your digital distribution MSP. If I can't buy this on Google Play in 2021 - that's a pretty major fail. This would be excusable maybe back in 2010 when digital distribution was still a new thing, but come on.

 No no. I once spent half an hour in the Vancouver airport, so I’ve got a pretty good feel for the entire Provence.
