100% French riders, shot exclusively in France, it is a chance to see Antoine Bizet, Antoine Dubourgnon, Yannick Granieri, Mehdi Gani, Louis Reboul, Rémi Thirion, Richard Fert, Anthony Rocci, Pierre Edouard Ferry and Pierre Charles Georges in their backyard, their training compounds, their homes… a different view on their life through our eyes.

After a year and a half of work by Marc-Olivier Panaud and Thibault Menu with the help of Thibault Maitrejean, we present to you “Hexagone” a French mountain bike film presented by Alltricks.com

Our goal was to showcase some of the best riders we have in France. The last project like that was made 5 years ago, a lot of new talents have risen since then. We jumped on the opportunity and decided to mix our student life with the life of filmmakers.

The opportunity was not only for us to reach the French mountain bike industry, it was mainly a way to unite and motivate French riders and partners from all ages. Putting our riders and their level out of the shadow, and having a good time along the way.

After years and years of Canadian education and thus, envy, through films or stories, this film is a good reminder for us that you can ride everywhere if you have dedication and use some friends and shovels.

This is our first big serious project as filmmakers, we started from nowhere with limited experience and money. We are now very happy about this whole adventure that will hopefully call for other ones.

 Magnifique mes Gars! Le scène du VTT en Europe est sous-estimé. Les grands S ont leur marchè principal ici, pas en Etats-unis et Canada. Il ne se pas reflète dans leurs prioritès en matière de promotion. Californie?!? Regarde les sentiers a les Alpes-maritimes. PNW?!? Regarde le VTT en Ecosse, Angleterre, et la nord-ouest de Norvège.

L`esprit Europèenne n`est pas une esprit vantard, a face d`internet et marketing moderne nous devons changer..

 Je vis en Californie depuis quelques années, et je dois avouer que les trails ici sont pas au top. Faut vraiment les trouver.
Les U.S. ont leur world cup maintenant (windham), donc sa devrait suffire.
Quand tu vois Champery ou Hafjell, c`est quand meme autre chose Wink
Faut garder en tete aussi que l`ont a maintenant de très bon bikes made in europe, et sa sa boost et sa fait plaisir.
e.g. Lapierre, YT, Commencal etc... KTM et Q Bikes aussi qui vont faire le come back

 Excellent film. Solid riding. Loved the big mountain scene. I've seen that BMW chase segment before also and it was just as awesome as the first time. I think I'll give it another watch. This film was also free to view. I think that was pretty awesome to see a free film of this caliber. Thanks to the riders and Filmmakers.

 We think we have the market covered on rednecks in North America, but the axe throwing guy living in the shack around 16 mins gives our best material a really good run for it's money.

 Au delà des performances réelles, j'ai bien apprécié certains plans séquences en traveling avant, avec la sensation de partager la même vitesse/ivresse que les pilotes.
Géniales certaines prises d'images : les scènes à travers bois notamment donnent l'illusion de la 3D, et les effets stroboscopiques sur les bikes qui surgissent en coin comme des flash de couleurs !
Bref un film avec des vrais plus-values par rapport aux vidéos classiquement visionnées jusqu'à présent ; les prises de vue et les artifices opératoires ne trahissent pas non plus l'un des protagoniste permanent de la vidéo : la Nature - Chapeau Messieurs !
