January 2014

The Riding Spiritis a non supported documentary about the essence of biking, filmed during a 2 month bike journey from Spain to Germany, covering over 3.000km of pedaling. Combining some of life's more wonderful things like adventure, sport, people and music, Sandro Szukat and his crew hit the road without much money and with no other plan than to find the riding spirit. Whether it be at the dirt jumps, crushing the DH spot, or simply the hours spent on the open road, it's fair to say they found it. When you mix exploration with shredding, the sum is always greater than the parts!

Check out the teaser below, and when you're ready for 40 minutes of soul-cleansing evasion, check out the full-length feature too.

We can't think of an adventure that embodies the spirit of the Brand of the Brave more than The Riding Spirit project, and to reward Sandro for his bravery, Five Ten is sending him a pair of their latest masterpiece, the Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoe. He probably has good use for a new pair of shoes after all that pedaling!


Congrats Sandro - you are Vital's Bravest for January 2014!
