In recent years mountain biking has turned into entertainment as well as sport. From the far corners of our planet MTB is becoming a way of life for lots of people. This is the idea behind "Another country". The aim of this project is to travel across "different" countries, making them more attractive for big, yet still young action sport.
At the end of 2013 we spent two weeks in Israel, traveling all over this amazing country. Perfect climate, ancient cities, endless deserts, 5000 years old trails, deep culture, this place amazes every second from beginning till the end, and was kinda made for biking.
Discover more in full movie, coming later in 2014.
"When you think about Israel mountain biking isn't really the first thing which comes to your mind. That was also the case with us when the idea for this trip was born. We didn't really know what to expect and what will be waiting there for us.
Upon arrival we were totally astonished about how modern and developed is this country. Tel Aviv metropolis impressed us the most with its youthful and cosmopolitan flair, but as we drove deeper into countryside we realised that there is so much more to discover - unbelievable net of dusty trails.
Nowadays there are plenty bike movies out there showing strong riders and their undoubtedly amazing skills but we wanted to show the exact opposite of that - normal riders on a trip which can by done by any mountain biker. "I can do that! I want to go there!" - these words of excitement we want to initiate. Putting our skills and equipment aside our goal is simply to get out there, have fun, travel and enjoy the nature. We are all one big family which shares the passion for riding!"
