GAMBLE - A Mountain Bike Film: Official Trailer Release

Banner for Gamble

Steel City Media and Creative Concept bring you the much anticipated new feature film 'GAMBLE', priding itself on bringing some of Downhill Mountain Biking's most talented and charismatic riders together, outside of the tape, on tracks tailored for madness.

Narrated by the infamous Alan Ford and set to music from the Arctic Monkeys, Boney M, Mint Royale and others, the top dogs of downhill have been united around the table and they ain't here to mess about!

The top dogs of Downhill have been released from the tape and you're about to see what happens when we put them all around a table together... Handpicked from the cream of the crop, these boys know how to hang loose on a bike.

Dust explosions, roost bombs, brown pow... whatever you want to call it, Bariloche in Argentina had a lot of it. The Gamble team has travelled far and wide, scouring the Earth for the best locations that lend themselves to madness.

Gamble is narrated by the one and only Alan Ford (think Lock Stock and Snatch). The gritty British gangster theme carries through the entire film, linking each rider's segment, with a clear nod to Guy Ritchie's classic movies. If you enjoyed the character "Bricktop" and you like mountain biking, this is definitely the bike film for you!

With the chips well and truly on the table, GAMBLE is about to go all in. Stick 50p in any of this lot and watch them go...

Featuring:

Greg Minnaar
Josh Bryceland
Steve Peat
Loic Bruni
Brook Macdonald
Sam Blenkinsop
Connor Fearon
Mark Wallace
Finn Iles
Phil Atwill
Craig Evans


We're ready to show our hand on iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo on demand and other download platforms from May 15th, but in the meantime, don't muck about and get yourselves over to gamblefilm.com for more details.

To pre-order, the film follow this link (iTunes pre-order available at a later date).

Throughout the year we've been treated to some truly incredible locations for mountain bike riding. Madeira was no exception. With an entirely custom Downhill track crafted by Nikki Whiles and the amazing Freeride Madeira crew, Loic Bruni's segment is one to look out for.

Phil Atwill is a man on a mission. His raw style was the perfect addition to Gamble and he made sure to keep a few aces up his sleeves when we travelled to Greece to film his segment. Another custom built track for the movie, deep in the hills of Central Greece.

Josh Bryceland back on a Downhill bike. We all love seeing the Rat jibbing his way through the forest on his trail bike, but seeing him swing his leg back over the big bike is a sure highlight in our opinion.

The King of the North. The top dog at the table. Steve Peat may be retired from racing but he's still ready to go all in when it matters. The people's champ shows the young guns a thing or two in his segment, with another custom Gamble line built in the heart of his home city of Sheffield, UK.

The Ozzie wild man gives us a decisive tutorial in cornering out in the wild parts of British Columbia. Retallack lived up to it's incredible reputation as a mecca for Mountain Biking and had us mining for nugs all week. Roost fries for breakfast and loam burgers for lunch. Take us back.

Finn Iles is the young gun of the group, setting his sights on some of the older and wiser players at the table. His segment in Pila is a hark back to some of the classic bike films of the 2000s. Here he is brushing up on some of his "pan and zoom" filming techniques for Instagram between runs (don't worry, only his riding made it into the actual film).

 This looks set to be the best MTB film ever. Please dont flood it with super slow-mo like Deathgrip, just to make it twice as long as it should be. Rather have a 30 min blast than a 60 min drag.
  • + 2
 So true. No-mo on the slo-mo with slow rap crap. Fast paced with heavy hitting music is where it's at! This film looks sic!
  • + 5
 Totally agree. There was some amazing riding in Deathgrip but it felt very stylised, a bit samey and actually left me a bit cold.
  • + 3
 @mindmap3: No doubting the amazement of it all. Still honestly cant stop begrudging paying £14 to stream it on release though. I felt a reach around would of softened the blow.
  • + 3
 @hostforaxenomorph: $14? I thought Deathgrip was a Netflix freebie...
  • + 1
 @Dethphist: That's more like $21 converted. Not when it was released. Plus I don't have a Netflix account anyways

 Deathgrip is a great movie that I watch over and over. Happy to see quallity full length mtb films are still being made.

 I appreciate what they have been doing with the style and slo mo stuff, but I like the change of pace. The trailers soundtrack and attitude got me excited in all the right ways...time to go shred nao

 Has Peaty gone into pig farming?

 You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm.

 #GAMBLEfilm, Not been so hyped for a MTB since back in the NWD days! This looks epic. Whys it not May yet???

 Hey Google, how can we get this thing to orbit faster around the sun?

 How upset do you think Vergier is that they got his entire team and his best buddy but didn't invite him?
  • + 2
 Well, Shaw didn't get an invite either but yeah, the "invite" system sure causes some negative feelings like we can see with Brosnan's last post

 @PierfrancescoTron: whoa what is this about? is this on Brosnan's instagram?

 Bugger DVD, 4K Bluray would be nice though!

 @vinay: Get a firewire and plug your tv into computer
  • + 3
 @aljoburr: Or HDMI cable straight from the video card, or just cast it to a smart TV from your phone over the home wifi network, or HDMI cable adapter from your phone directly to the TV, or use your blu ray player or xbox or PS4 to stream it online, or maybe get a $50 media streaming box and use that...

I mean, it's 2018 folks.
  • + 0
 @aljoburr: Nah, sometimes it is just pleasant to not deal with computer interfaces. I ended up on PB when Dirt went out of print (though I created an account earlier but wasn't quite active back then). But with all the Misspent Summers stuff (the books) and Cranked magazine all is good again. But yeah, want to read something, pick a book. Want to listen a tune, pop in a cd or put on an lp and it goes. Want to watch a video, pop in a disc and it goes too. Going through all those menus kind of kills the experience for me. Sure I could spend money on high speed internet, new devices and cables to make it all work out. But it is kind of silly considering it doesn't make it one bit better than using what I already have. Funny to see half the PB audience goes heels in the sand when a drivetrain manufacturer releases an electronic ALTERNATIVE for shifting gears (which reviewers apparently admit works better and more reliably) yet the stuff for actually chilling out can change unlimited, requiring new electronic nonsense at the consumer end as well as more, bigger and faster datacenters at the business end and it is all good. Sure, I'm using it too. It just kind of feels silly to be using it when I don't really need it. So yeah, the streaming service is great for those who like that. If there'd be the alternative on disc, I'd appreciate that too.
  • + 1
 @vinay: So you're telling me that going to a store, looking for the CD/dvd you want, likely not finding it since those stores are nearly out of existence, ordering it online, waiting for it to be delivered, putting it in the machine that has ONLY one purpose, waiting for the do not copy warnings to finish and finally having to click play in the menu is easy?

All that is easier and more "chill" than just picking the option on a device that you already have in your hands anyway?
  • + 2
 @vinay: we were thinking about it. But not sure yet. If the demand is there... VHS?
  • + 0
 @Dethphist: Yes, understood me correctly.

@CreativeConcept: My device runs dvd and blu-ray. I've got one VHS (Earthed 1) but had someone copy that to dvd for me. It takes some investment to prepare physical copies so you'll probably need to do some market research to see if the demand is there. Some new, yet to be released, music I bought recently is available on MC (music cassette) though I'm not sure whether the demand for VHS is comparable. If possible, I preorder new music (or pitch in in the crowdfunding) to lower the risk for the artist. But I don't think the option was there for this movie. If it would have been there then yes, I would probably have invested up front.
  • + 1
 @CreativeConcept: Pretty sure the demand is there. Surely you could do a run of DVD's at a low cost. Personally I'd pay double for a DVD/BluRay version.
