Mountain bike celebration 

Big screen mountain bike adventures stokes riders, viewers

An evening of mountain bike adventures on the big screen gets riding enthusiasts stoked about the season Friday, June 23, 8 p.m. at the Telus Conference Centre.

The world-premier teaser of Kranked 6 Progression will warm up crowds before the screening of The Collective’s latest adventure Roam . As the name suggests, the world’s top riders roam the globe looking for interesting places to mountain bike.

Other evening highlights include a screening of Defect , an extreme unicycling film hosted by unicyclist Kris Holm and a Big Mountain Slide Show hosted by Chris Winter.

The evening keeps things loose with opportunities to hear from show producers and directors who will field questions from the audience to share more about their production experiences.

The evening also includes an auction for one of only six Roam mountain bike frames made for the movie. Funds will benefit Epic Riders, a local charity that encourages children of all ages and riding abilities to improve their riding skills as well as Future Heroes, a Cycling B.C. endowment fund created to support future cycling champions.

Advanced $12 tickets are available at Corsa Cycles in Squamish and Garbanzo Bike and Bean in Whistler. Tickets are otherwise $15 at the door.
