How many mountain bikers does it take to screw in a light bulb? We’re not sure. But it takes a fair amount of light bulbs to light up a mountain biker.
Darklight, brainchild of the Sweetgrass Productions team, follows pro mountain bikers Graham Agazziz, Matt Hunter and Matty Miles through the fern-strewn trails of the Pacific Northwest and red dirt, slick rock and steep spines of Utah. Filmed under the blanket of darkness, illuminated by an array of industrial, colored lights, this is, in more ways than one, arguably one of the most brilliant flicks ever to hit the mountain biking world.
The seven and a half minute segment is worth watching again and again. At the very least, it makes you want to invest in a decent bike light.
