However most people will be first checking out the trailer, to see what filmmaker Clay Porter has been busy putting together over the past 2 weeks for this launch. Here’s what he says in his own words about the trailer for F1RST:

“I’m really excited about the launch of and to finally release the film’s trailer. Since I premiered Between The Tape last April, I’ve been hard at work on the film’s sequel and I’m stoked to finally let people get a glimpse of what’s to come on April 18th.

Between The Tape and its trailer touched the surface of what the sport of downhill racing is, but for the F1RST trailer I wanted to delve deeper into the minds of the athletes. I chose all the interview clips and narration to fit a certain feel; finding out what is going through a rider’s mind when racing downhill.

I’m also excited about the blog on the website where you’ll be able to track the final two shoots of the film as well as the editing stages. Even though the World Cup series ended last September I haven’t put the camera down. I leave for Sam Hill’s house in Australia in a week in a half to wrap up his section, and then leave for South Africa at the end of February to shoot with Greg Minnaar and Steve Peat for their section. It’s going to be a busy next three months for me and you’ll be able to track it all on”
