Adventure (English), Rachael Wilson (Neuseeland) 50 min
Two extraordinary athletes train together for an adventure in the South American Andes. One of them has an almost superhuman endurance and is among the top multi-sportsmen in the world and the other, a legend in his hometown of Queenstown – the world capital of adventure sports – is known for his absolutely fearless downhill races on the mountain bike. They were given the best mountain bike equipment with which they started their most extreme mountain bike adventure in La Paz, the highest town in the world. This film provides a comprehensive and detailed insight into the training schedule, as well as the physiology of the human body. Just watching these outstanding athletes will leave even the average biker soaked with sweat.
