Greenbriar Challenge to serve as backdrop for new MTB movie

Organizers of Maryland's Greenbrier Challenge on April 27 will have their event filmed as part of an upcoming feature movie MAX VO2 The Potential Inside starring Ransford Doherty and featuring champion American mountain bikers Jeremiah Bishop and Chris Eatough. The film, scheduled for theatrical release in 2009, is a fictional drama of relationships set against the backdrop of professional cycling.

According to the film's website, it will be about a veteran cyclist who "is given an opportunity he doesn't want, to train a rookie cycling prodigy". He is grieving over a tragic automobile accident and only reluctantly takes on the prodigy, Jake. The two use technology and scientific training methods to transform the young rider into a top contending cyclist.
