The Arizona High School Cycling League is thrilled to present a new documentary about the sport of high school mountain biking.
At the age of 16, many American kids trade in two wheels for four. Trusty bicycles that once gave them freedom to explore on weekends now collect dust in the garage. For a growing number of high school students, however, two wheels don’t get dusty, they get dirty. Their lives continue to revolve around weekend rides, but now those rides have a finish line.
“SingleTrack High” follows a diverse group of high school student-athletes through the 2012 mountain bike racing season in the NorCal High School Cycling League. For Eliel, high school bike racing is a competitive outlet at the highest level. For Carlos, it is a means to escape the rough neighborhoods of South Sacramento. For Mackinzie and Allie, it is a chance to break into a sport traditionally dominated by the boys. These are some of the kids of “SingleTrack High,” Through their experiences, the film explores the positive impact high school mountain biking can have on boys and girls alike, from all walks of life.
Filmmaker Jacob Seigel-Boettner, who produced the film with his brother Isaac, said, “Even as former high school and collegiate cyclists, it was an eye-opener for us to see the impact that racing in the NorCal League has had on these kids. Being part of a high school mountain bike team has helped them find acceptance, accept themselves, and expand their worlds. We are very grateful to all of the student-athletes and their families for opening up their lives to us, both on and off the bike.”
“SingleTrack High” was produced by Pedal Born Pictures, with the generous support of Specialized Bicycle Components and the National Interscholastic Cycling Association. Additional production support was provided by GoPro and Sunnyvale VW.
Ticket sales benefit the Arizona League and 100% of the proceeds support our mission of providing safe, quality high school mountain bike programs for student-athletes and teams from public, charter and private schools throughout the state.
