For my money this remains one of the best mountain biking films around.  Released in 1997, it documents the globe trotting antics of UK pro riders Steve Peat, Martyn Ashton, Rob Warner, Andrew Titley, Martin Hawyes and Will Longden as they go from the UK to California in search of the ultimate MTB high.  The soundtrack is quality with the likes of Space Monkeys, Garbage, Tribute to Nothing, Black Star Liner, Death in Vegas, Orbital, C J Bolland and Freakpower and the riding’s a cut above again.  Look out for the lycra, the lack of helmets and bikes like Giant ATX-990, Santa Cruz’s Heckler, GT STS and Cannondale M 550.  Good times.
