*Here’s a video that Dan Barham, Vernon Felton and 2Flat collaborated on for Bikemag.com. This was an amazing opportunity to get to know an incredible person and in the process produce something quite heartfelt and moving.
Mark Weir is an icon. He’s the tough man of modern mountain biking. The grimacing guy, charging down an ugly stretch of trail at ungodly speeds. The guy who kept pronouncing The Coming of Enduro long before anyone even took the notion seriously. And, despite his getting a bit grey in the beard, Mark Weir is also still one of the fastest riders on the scene.
Weir, however, is a hell of a lot more complicated–and interesting–than any and all of that. This short film begins to shed a bit of light on that fact, but this is just the beginning.
