The Megavalanche is the one of the world’s craziest, most iconic mass-start events, packed with crashes, camaraderie and bar-to-bar racing. The 21.6km track, deep in the French Alps, moves from glacier to single track, encompassing the range of terrains mountain bikers encounter.
And while there is endless POV GoPro footage, crash reels and vlogs from the event, nothing has managed to capture how it truly feels to ride it.
Instead of the typical bombastic crashes and 100m slides, the team were inspired by the course’s varying terrains and how they symbolise the different experiences of riders.
Shot during the day, deep into the night and during the event itself, the short film features rising stars Louise Ferguson and Ronan Dunne taking on the famously treacherous course.
