DC presents Robbie “Maddo” Maddison’s “Pipe Dream,” giving the world a chance to witness history being made as Maddo rides his dirt bike on the powerful and iconic waves of Tahiti. From his helmet to motocross boots, Maddo was dressed for FMX when he took his dirt bike into the unchartered saltwater terrain of the Pacific Ocean in French Polynesia.
For nearly two years Robbie has been focused on making surfing on his motorbike a reality. His efforts paid off in Tahiti, where he rode the world famous waves at Teahupoo and Papara.
Fear. You either shrink from it or embrace it. Fear is a state that motocrossers have to touch on a weekly or daily basis. How do they deal with it? How do they manage it? What drives a human being towards inexplicable risk, the limits of physical and mental endurance? Past films have looked at the soul and spirit of racing and riding but ‘Fear Not’ – the very first feature-length production by award-winning videographer Mikey Neale – gets inside the heads of some of the biggest names on the international scene. Insight sits next to inspiration as Neale and his colleagues employ their full range of skills and gadgetry to present these athletes and their capabilities in an utterly engrossing series of majestic clips and montages. McGrath, Wilson, Searle, Paulin, Hill and events like the Monster Energy Cup, and the Motocross of Nations sit next to imagery from free-riding haven Beaumont for this exhilarating ‘skin dip’ under motocross.
