Exploring Canadian wilderness with Darren Berrecloth was bound to result in discovering some awesome single tracks. Four riders representing different freeriding generations set off to the north of Canada for another bicycle escapade. The goal was to raft through the Tatshenshini River – from the British Columbia, through Yukon, to the shores of Alaska. The prize for this struggle waited in the form of wild unexplored trails.
The protagonists of the documentary are the renowned freeriders Wade Simmons, Darren Berrecloth, Tyler McCaul and Carson Storch. Each represents a different page of the history of riding, though their shared passion once again overcomes the differences in age, experience and attitudes to life and cycling. There is no doubt that among the shared values in the team there is also the love and respect to nature.
