Mountain Bikers Examine Their Relationship with Crashing - The New Yorker Documentary 1

In this short documentary from The New Yorker, three young women reflect on their willingness to sustain broken bones, concussions, and organ damage as professional mountain bikers. On Falling is a dreamy, unorthodox glimpse into the inner landscapes of those immersed in a subculture where falling is normal. Blending white- knuckle riding, crashes, and quiet self-examination, the film unfolds as a sensory meditation on the rush of control that comes with completely letting go.

On Falling features UCI Downhill World Champion Miranda Miller, Enduro World Series medalist Andréane Lanthier Nadeau, and pro rider and Winter Olympian Brittany Phelan.
