When Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller moved to the tiny, conservative high desert town of Fruita, Colorado almost twenty years ago it was not on the map as far as mountain biking was concerned. It was a small and tight knit community without much economic vitality. Jen and Anne have left an inedible imprint on Fruita — at the outset they were on the fringe and a bit ostracized, they’re now at the very heart and soul of the community. READ MORE
This is the story of two mountain bike racers who happen to be women who raced from Banff, Canada to the Mexican border on the Tour Divide, a 2745 mile self-supported mountain bike race. The film is entirely self shot using only a Go Pro and an iPhone while these racers rode an average of 120 miles off-road per day and slept for 4 hours a night by the side of the trail. It’s a very raw and real portrayal of the places we go emotionally under extreme duress and was made with the intention of inspiring other people to consider what they might be capable of achieving.

Bikepacking across the alps and skiing some iconic mountains along the way – no motor allowed! Jochen Mesle and Max Kroneck are not your everyday freeski athletes, and they have realized their longtime dream. Their biggest and most extraordinary ski tour so far. In just five weeks the two friends have traveled from their homeland of Germany across the Western Alps to the Mediterranean by bicycles, and have skied the most beautiful mountains on the way. They have not only been searching for pristine untouched slopes that challenged them as Big Mountain skiers, they also had to cover the whole distance without a motor – their skis strapped on their bikes or the bikes strapped on the backpacks. The two had traveled the world for many mountainous adventures, but over the last few years, the idea for “ICE & PALMS” had grew in their minds: a ski adventure that started right on their own doorsteps.

Kids and bikes; wherever you are in the world, they go together. The chaotic streets of Kathmandu may not seem like a typical breeding ground for world-class mountain bikers, but then again nothing is typical about Rajesh (RJ) Magar. Since learning to ride on a beat-up clunker, to becoming the four-time National Champion at age 21, RJ’s story is one of boundless childhood dreaming and unstoppable determination, forged from junkyard scraps and tested on the rugged trails of the mighty Himalaya.
