Ever wonder what it's like to be a downhill mountain biker in Ireland? Sharon Kennedy and Andy Yoong from Northern Ireland Production Company Honcho Designs, have teamed up on a film project with 10 of the best Irish downhill riders including National Champion Colin Ross, Masters world silver medallist Meave Baxter, and Irish pro Ben Reid.

The new movie, Break the Cycle, aims to give insight into the lives of the riders while also showcasing Irish landscapes. It will capture the extent to which the downhill riders' lives revolve around their bikes. By shooting them at the places they ride, train, work and live, the film will look into how these riders have used their bikes to "break the cycle" of everyday life.
