We love to find others who are on a journey that is THPL like. When we find them we are inspired by what they are doing and we can admire them for their willingness to do more than expected. In North of Nightfall, a Red Bull Media film (see trailer below) we can follow the exploits of four mountain bikers as they embark on an expedition to the top of the world where they set out to explore this relatively unknown land. Hidden among the glaciers on Axel Heiberg Island, high in the Arctic Circle, are mountain bike lines too incredible to ignore. Harsh temperatures, volatile weather, and nine-month winters mean the area is normally devoid of human life. But each summer, this frozen landscape flourishes under endless daylight revealing a spectacular ecosystem. In North of Nightfall, Darren Berrecloth, Carson Storch, Cam Zink, and Tom van Steenbergen, discover a rapidly changing environment steeped in history along with descents, unlike anything anyone’s ridden to date. North of Nightfall is indeed a THPL experience. Check it out and enjoy the vastness of the North Pole area and the grit and determination that these four boys have.
