The Worlds Best Mountain Bike Movies

North Of Nightfall

North of Nightfall isn’t your standard run of the mill MTB Movie. Moving mountain biking far away from the crowded tree lines and bike parks we are all so used to seeing.

Darren Berrecloth and his mates set off on a mighty adventure to the Arctic Circle, embarking on unknown lands to ride lines no one has ever even dreamed of.

Throughout their expedition, they hit road blocks and struggles but eventually stumbled upon the island of Axel Heiberg. An island in which the frozen terrain has never been touched by mountain bikes before. Where the challenging environment and 24 hour daylight push the limits of their skills as professional mountain bikers.

If you are after an epic adventure and not just mountain biking, North of Nightfall is a MTB movie masterpiece.

Riding the Tatshenshini

Riding the Tatshenshini is another of Darren Berrecloth’s famous mountain biking adventure films. Setting off on a monstrous journey to find virgin lines near the Tatshenshini River.

This Documentary not only showcases the big-mountain riding we all love to watch, but the entire journey which includes rafting over 260km down the Tatshenshini River to access the mountain biking lines they’re searching for.

Kilimanjaro – Mountain Of Greatness

No, this isn’t another classic Danny Macaskill trick fest. This is the story of mountain biking legends attempting to conquer one of the worlds most well known peaks… Mount Kilimanjaro.

Standing at a massive 5,895m elevation, the hardest part of this mission isn’t navigating the insanely rocky volcanic terrain. It’s the incredibly low air pressure and extreme climbing that prove to be the difficult part of this endeavour.

Danny falls victim rather quickly to the altitude, but with the will power, support from his mates, and an overnighter in the hospital, the entire crew have another crack at taming this beast.

Kilimanjaro – Mountain of Greatness is one of the best inspirational mountain bike movies I’ve watched and it’s mountain biking legends like these that make me want to strive for more!

Motive

Speaking of inspiration, Motive is a mountain biking film that takes a deep look into exactly what inspires and motivates professionals of the wondrous sport of mountain biking.

Throughout the film, various riders are queried on the what and why of mountain biking and how it has affected their lives. Mixed, of course, with some insanely sleek mountain bike skills as these professionals rip the trails.

Motive is a great MTB film for those wondering how people can maintain the focus. The Drive. The passion that is mountain biking on a day in day out basis.

Fabio Wibmer – Fabiolous Escape 2

If you haven’t heard of the Youtube sensation Fabio Wibmer, you’d better clear your schedule because your eyes will be glued to his channel for the next week. Sharing many of the same traits as Danny Macaskill, Fabio’s mountain bike films show epic stunts stretching through all disciplines of mountain biking.

Fabiolous Escape 2 is a short mountain bike movie that packs as many awesome stunts as possible into the 10-minute cracker. Mixing mountain biking with a touch of comedy, Fabio shreds the slopes of Saalbach Hinterglemm…

And no, he didn’t wait until summer! This entire short film encompasses Fabio hooting down the snow-covered groomers gapping buildings, jumping from helicopters and nailing a double backflip… I mean who wouldn’t like this!?

One thing I love about Fabio’s short mountain bike movies is that he shares all of his stacks and bloopers from filming. If that doesn’t prove he is down to earth, I don’t know what will.

Fabio has many awesome MTB videos and they can all be found on his YouTube channel. But my absolute favourite is Fabios Fabiolous escape 2.

Raw 100

Raw 100 is the benchmark of short mountain biking films. This is a series designed to be different, and difference was achieved. In the eyes of Raw 100, sometimes simplicity is best.

The rules are simple: No music, no slow-motion, just 100 seconds of raw brilliance. Following these rules, incredible filmmakers are pushed to the limit of their creativity and are forced to think outside the box.

Unfortunately you have to pay for this particular mountain bike movie… sorry folks. I wasn’t able to find a free version on the internet.

The Moment

This is the story of the moment in history when several groups of rad folk changed the mountain biking scene forever.

Exploring the origins of freeride, Moment takes us back in time to the pioneers of our beloved sport. It shows the path in which these adventure-seeking maniacs took to test the limits of what mountain biking once was. And it’s these maniacs we need to thank for the direction we now find ourselves facing.

It truly is an amazing film and the features these blokes hit on old school bikes are insane… Hence the maniac reference.
