Filmed by Dan Barham/Interviewed by Vernon Felton & Seb Kemp
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, which is at times humorous and at times dead serious, begins to shed a bit of light on that fact. This, however, is just the beginning.
