Oh Cam Zink, who can forget his 2013 backflip at he Red Bull Rampage? Or in 2014 this 360 step-down at the same event? Or how about his record breaking 100 foot backflip!? Always at the cutting edge of our sport Zink is a man possessed. He featured in Episode 8 of our Beyond the Bike series by Lacy Kemp and Jasper Wessleman, check it out.
But the big news is that his feature length film on his life story, ‘Reach For The Sky’, will have its European premier here in the UK, on October 15th in Sheffield. It will be a night not to miss. Here’s all the info from Sensus’ (Zink’s own company) UK distributor Hookit Products:
“Hookit Products are excited to announce that they will be hosting the UK/European premier of Cam Zink’s feature length biopic ‘Reach For The Sky’.The event will be held at The Auditorium,Sheffield University’s Student Union cinema with seats limited to 380. Hookit Products will also be doing prize giveaways and the opportunity to win some signed merchandise from the man himself, Cam Zink. In true Sensus style we have made sure that their is a bar on site. The show starts at 8:30pm, Thursday 15th October, so make sure you put it in your diaries.
‘Reach for the Sky’ is Ryan Cleek’s second feature-length film – an emotional roller coaster ride that digs deeply into the roots of Zink’s ambition and then launches full speed into a well-paced and edited drama that follows Cam from boy to man, through competitions, into the hospital, on the road, and at home. The story of a career that spans the birth and rise to glory of professional mountain bike freeride competition is told first-hand, by friends and family, and by Cleek, who filmed Zink for a number of years leading up to his most recent exploits at the Red Bull Rampage and culminating with his attempt at a world-record back flip. Viewers will recognise some of the footage, but most of ‘Reach for the Sky’ is fresh or yet to be published archival material. “Reach for the Sky” is a must see for Cam Zink fans – and for anyone who loves mountain bikes. It’s one hell of a story.
The evening will also have, raffle prizes, Sensus give aways and a chance to meet some famous faces!”
