BEYOND THE BIKE
USA 2017 9min.
Dir. Lacy Kemp
Ask anyone entrenched in the gravity side of mountain biking who holds the title for the “Greatest of All Time” and you may hear a couple of familiar names – Peaty, Vouilloz, or Minnaar. But one will likely come up over and over again: Anne-Caroline Chausson

48 HAIRPIN BENDS BY NIGHT
Italy 2017 53min.
Dir. Fabrizio Lussu
Giuliano Calore, born in Padova (north-east Italy), is a living legend of cycling found in the Guinness Book of World Records. Now at 77 years old, he has decided to achieve one last record: exploit the twists and turns of the legendary Monte Stelvio Pass at an altitude of 2758m with all of its 48 hairpin turns, on a bike with no handlebars or brakes, at night illuminated only by a torch and moonlight. A no-hands descent into fears, ambitions, passions, and dreams.
