The very first Greek DH edit is finally here and FREE TO WATCH (English CC subtitles). The film features the big name athletes from the first ever DH Open Cup and captures all the highlights from the season. Our Cretan Producer/ Director, Emmanouel Armoutakis, had the opportunity to be at and film all seven races of the Down Hill Open Cup. When the racing season was complete he traveled all over Greece to shoot more of the riding scene. He interviewed many of the athletes and race directors from the series. After two trips to the mainland and days of editing he managed to make this documentary film to screen at the closing ceremony of the DH Open Cup.
“After a year full of races, gathering the footage wasn’t easy. Then I decided that something was missing, interviews and extra shots filmed in every place where a race took place. I also include some extra places just to get an image of how downhill, as a sport, is standing amongst other activities in Greece. Now I can finally show it to the rest of the world … so you can see what downhill is like for us, here in Greece. I hope you enjoy..!” – Emmanouel Armoutakis.
