Official Trailer: Cam Zink - Reach For The Sky

Aug 10, 2015
by Ryan Cleek  


YT Industries Presents 'Cam Zink: Reach For The Sky'. A Ryan Cleek movie

Freeride mountain biking is synonymous with danger, reward, adrenaline, and pushing the known boundaries of the sport. Cam Zink sits atop the freeride world having won the sport’s most coveted titles, the Red Bull Rampage, Crankworx Slopestyle, and the Freeride World Tour, yet those accolades have not come without a physical price. He has transcended cycling media, and his super-human feats have become broadcast television and Internet sensations.

'Reach For The Sky' features unique behind the scenes looks at Zink’s dramatic 2013 and 2014 Red Bull Rampage campaigns in Virgin, Utah; plus a one-of-a-kind portrayal of his record-breaking 100-foot backflip attempt at Mammoth Mountain—showcasing 100% never-before-seen footage. The movie explores the fascinating life story of one of the sport’s most beloved and diverse athletes, but also delves into the multi-layered psychological elements of fame, physical punishment, and self-examination, to uncover why Zink perseveres through the adversity—even when no one is watching.

Written, produced, directed and edited by Ryan Cleek.

Supported by Oakley, Deity, SRAM

 I'm interested to see what kind of footage they come up with. Imagine a 3ft. tall Zink tossing a 3 off his house into a giant pit filled with death and sticks... that's what I imagine happening. There are really no other explanations for his behavior.

 There sure was a bit where everyone was emulating the Coastal Crew and not pulling it off as well. Glad we are through that phase.

 This movie needed to be made. The guy's a legend in our sport and has been for the last decade. Looking forward to seeing this one.

 One of the few pros that I'd really like to meet, just to shake his hand......and have his baby.

 Met him and Cam McCaul at woodward a couple years ago. I was so stoked to fist bump him I just couldn't talk. He was super cool, even though I probably seemed like a complete idiot.

 That's gonna be wild! Zink is already a legend and I honestly love those kind of movies, when you can truly understand this guy and watch his point of view, his life. So far Won't back down and The miserable champion are my favourites tho. Hope to see this one really soon Smile

 I dunno if they improved but Bos is slow as fuck handling warranty cases...

 Yeah, and they are shut for holidays. I found that out from a forum, YT don't tell you anything.

 I have nothing but praise for their service up until they expanded, now it's non existent.

 I was concerned lack of support would be an issue with consumer direct sales. Lots of benefits, hopefully they can figure this out.
  • 1 0
 They appear to be overwhelmed, i can't believe they didn't gear up for their global expansion.
It also appears that Bos have flunked on them, Bos admit they have a lack of spare parts, new Capra Pro's have also been set back by a parts delay, gotta be down to Bos, who then shut up shop for three weeks.
YT must be their biggest customer, i think they should dump them, of course most of this is speculation lol

 Cam Zink is even more rad for being a shredder on some pretty shitty bikes. Those K mart wonders looked terrible and I doubt many brand fanboys would go near one but Cam just went balls out on them. So stoked to see him with what looks to be a decent bike under him again. Not long till Rampage!

 The Hyper bikes he rode were either another brand rebadged (CORSAIR) or custom made. He never rode the K-Mart versions.
  • 2 0
 I didn't think he actually rode the K mart versions but I did think that Hyper made the ones he did ride so I stand half corrected! Cheers bud.

 I get scared just watching the trailer...I mean it is cool that he is pushing to new levels like that but I do worry that the sport is pushing a bit too far at times. For the kind of risks that pro riders are taking now they need to be getting multi-million dollar contracts like NFL players, etc...

 Can't wait to see this movie dude. There's always a couple guys in every given sport that are just on another level. You're one of those dudes. The balls all this guy. So gnar.

I'll admit strait up I bagged you on that one podium but that was all about that one podium. Had nothing to do with you or your riding. I think you're a beast. One of the dopest gnarliest dudes mtb riding has ever seen. Remind me of Madison, Pastrana, Bender, Farmer, etc.. Just doing stuff nobody else is willing to do.

Honestly, one of the things I respect the most right now is how hard you're grinding on being well rounded with the racing and the speed/style stuff...etc.

Mad respect dude.



Not like my opinion matters but whatever. LOL! Keep killing it dude.

 This is gonna beat UnReal, Strength in Numbers, Builder and every other movie made about this sport. Zink is the man. I'd like to see another one of these made about Bearclaw too.
