The world premier of F1RST has been scheduled for Friday, April 18, 2007 at 8:00pm, in conjunction with the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California. Produced by Clay Porter and Distinction Productions, F1RST is a follow-up to the 2007 Between the Tape, and like it, is a documentary about the sport of downhill mountain bike racing and specifically the 2007 World Cup Series.
FIRST was shot in locations all over the world including South Africa, Australia, the USA, Eastern Europe and the United Kingdom. The feature length movie highlights the world's best downhill racers both on and off the course, praising their race abilities and nudging them into candid interviews about their lives and their first experiences with the sport.
Stars include Sam Hill, Steve Peat, Greg Minnaar and the accomplished Atherton family, but the film also taps into the lesser known world behind the scenes of mountain bike racing, and some equally remarkable athletes who are about to explode onto the scene.
