Note from Josh: Sorry for the radio silence around here. I started a new job last week, so that’s taken precedence over The Bicycle Story for the time being. Things should be back to their semi-regular normalcy here soon.
I’m a big fan of Brian Vernor’s work. He’s produced some of cyclocross’ mainstay documentaries. He’s also a great photographer that not only makes wonderful images of cycling, but the people, fans, atmosphere, and culture that surround the sport as well. To be frank, it’s hard not to be a little jealous of the life Vernor has crafted for himself (at least the public image of that life he shares on his blog and through his work). He travels all over the world to shoot photos, make films, and ride bikes. It’s pretty rad.
Like much of his work, the latest film follows that “travel, shoot, bikes” formula. Vernor joined the Jamis mountain bike team down in Chile for the Trans Andes Challenge, a 580-km mountain bike stage race across the Andes. Check out the trailer below:
