COTA Movie Night @ McMenamins

Pine Mountain Sports & SRAM presents… Steps to the Top

No pressure, no diamonds. — Thomas Carlyle

It’s easy to forget that the heroes of our sport are humans, like the rest of us. Sure, they have talents that have turned them into mountain biking superstars, but that is easily overlooked, and we often see them only as personas. Watching the action unfold on screen from the comfort of a couch, or at the event with a cold drink in one hand and a foam finger on the other, we’re often lulled into the belief that what we’re watching is…normal, natural.

During those couple hours of broadcasted hype, it’s easy to forget the pressure and pain, steps and sacrifice each of the athletes endured in order to get to the show. Beneath the logos and behind the goggles, these riders we idolize or criticize is a very real human being who has to deal with the pressure of competition in a sport that punishes the smallest mistakes with broken bones.

Pressure has the ability to crush dreams, derail seasons and also to make beautiful things happen.

SRAM’s Step to the Top is comprised of 13 short stories about 13 remarkable athletes, and their very human experiences on the bike.

Run time: 64 minutes

Movie Night at McMenamins raises funds and awareness for Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

$6 per person, cash only, please. Minors accompanied by parent or guardian.
