Rapha is proud to present Van Diemen's Land, the first ride from the Rapha Continental 2012, featuring a short film, words and photos from Tasmania. The Rapha Continental 2012 will feature unique rides from across the globe: Europe, the UK, Japan, Asia, Australia and, of course, North America.
The latest film from the Rapha Continental Australia was shot in the Snowy Mountains range, home to Mount Kosciuszko, the highest peak in Australia. Set to a haunting score and produced by The Sweetshop, The Snowys contrasts the traditional transport of the Aussie stockman, the horse, with the modern bicycle.
CRITICAL FILM - A documentary about a very special weekend in July of 2010. A weekend of unconventional cyclocross racing. It only took 126 km of dirt, gravel and cobblestones devided in 4 stages between Dresden and Leipzig, 80 racers, 9 hours, 35°C, 600 liters of water, a ton of food, a world cup quarterfinal and many many enthusiastic souls, to make this an unbelievable experience.
They call it 'CRITICAL DIRT - A study in crossification'.
ERTZUI FILM has captured this event along the dirt with our very own perspective.
