Seven – The BC Bike Race Movie

Seven: The BC Bike Race Movie from BC Bike Race on Vimeo.

SEVEN a documentary by Aaron Larocque about the BC Bike Race has been released to the public. The movie is now available on Pinkbike after a successful screening at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver with over 400 attendees.

The release of SEVEN just days before BC Bike Race gets set to roll, will kick off the 8th eighth edition, July 29th in North Vancouver.

This documentary will showcase the deeper connection between the participants and the journey that is called the ‘Ultimate Singletrack Experience’. This odyssey through the host communities and along this, now famous, circle route through ancient Rainforests, is all set against the rugged scenery of coastal British Columbia.

“BC Bike Race is an event about people from different backgrounds coming together to share and experience some of the best mountain biking in the world. I think ‘Seven’ really reflects that experience. The people and personalities that shape the event each year are what inspired this film. I’d like to thank the many people that helped make this film possible, but most of all I want to thank the riders whose experience we were allowed to capture”. Said director Aaron Larocque

“While each year only 600 riders are able to do the event, making a documentary to share the experience seemed like a great way to include the whole world. Our aim was to make people laugh, cry, to not be too serious and at the end of the day inspire people to get out there and ride their bikes. This journey that is the BC Bike Race is amazing and it’s so difficult to translate cross country riding into a story, but we think in 39 minutes we have more than achieved an amazing, inspirational story”. Said BCBR president and executive producer Dean Payne.

Pull up a chair, grab a beer, relax and enjoy SEVEN available exclusively on Pinkbike to watch for the next 24 hours.

We hope you get stoked for a summer of riding, follow the Race and 2014 story as it all unfolds, June 29-July 5th
