Gripped Films (makers of Off Road to Athens) announced this week that their next mountian-bike feature documentary, 24-Solo, will debut at the 2007 Sea Otter Classic. The film documents six-time 24-Hours of Adrenalin World Solo Champion Chris Eatough's quest for a seventh word title at the 24 Hours of Adrenaline World Solo Championships in Conyers, Georgia.
The film follows his 2006 season as it is complicated by pressure from sponsors and tougher competition following the athlete through preparatory wins in China and Wisconsin. The film culminates with Eatough's dramatic battle with Australian National Champion Craig Gordon in Georgia.
The movie will preview at Sea Otter on April 13 at 8pm at the historic Golden State Theatre in downtown Monterey, California. Additional screenings will follow Saturday and Sunday nights at 7 PM and 9 PM.
Produced by Jason Berry and Ken Bell, the film includes commentary from big names in the sport including Gary Fisher, John Stamstad, Hans Rey, John Tomac, Alison Dunlap, and Ned Overend.
