The man himself!

Here is some amazing photography of Julian Mittelstädt of some of the most beautiful spots in Europe. Julian traveled with us to all filming stops and came home with some stunning shots!

To put this project in perspective, this was not a Hollywood budgeted mega project as many of you commented but our debut film project and a dedicated idea of three brothers that love mountain biking and wanted to create a stunning mountain bike journey. We put a lot of our life into this project and we are hyped about how it turned out. This project would have never been possible for us without strong partners and their integration and we are very happy to see that brands like BMW, Red Bull and Adidas care about our sport.

We hope you enjoy these pictures of our good friend Julian who helped immensely on this project! Give him a follow on Instagram @jmvotography

Getting fire shots is the best thing! All in collaboration with the local authorities and an old rotten hut that needed to go away anyway.



Kudowa - Poland

Together with the city of Kudowa this monster was created with Nico Vink and Szymon Godziek. More to come from this spot Wink .

For Bruno the city is a playground. Literally.

These days it takes more to impress the kids than a heavy double kink rail.

Filming is no joke and sometimes everyone's nerves are on the verge!



Paris - France

There is something special about the way Matthias rides. His fluidity and style compared with modern architecture was one of our favourites!

Paris has some of the craziest buildings we have ever seen!

United Kingdom - Wales and Scotland

Unfortunately, we only were able to spend two days filming with Rachel. It was planned to be a first location scouting combined with some shooting. Then she tore her Achilles and the rest is Corona travel-ban-history.

Is this really the UK or Canada? The new Atherton bikepark delivers some truly unique trails and terrain and you can be sure Rachel knows how to ride them!

What does this man eat for breakfast? We bet Chris Akrigg would win every Cross Country Eliminator.



La Poma - Spain

Yes it's not new. But would it be a movie about Europe without La Poma? It's like making a film about the US and not featuring Aptos in the good old times.

No dig no ride! Nobody knows that better than super local Bienve Aguado Alba who is stretching it to the max!

La Poma x Godziek = perfection

Chatêl - France

Snow and sun. Nothing like Vinny T absoluteöly destroying the place!

The daily pilgrimage up the mountain before sunset was a heavy task for the team.

Snow or dirt. Neither way you want to be in Vinny's way.

 It should be Kudowa-Zdrój. Zdrój means Spa and it is a part of the city name.
