THE RIDER & THE WOLF
The Rider and the Wolf is a feature documentary about the life and mysterious disappearance of Mountain Bike Hall of Fame cyclist Mike Rust. He helped form the sport of mountain biking in the USA with the stoke and technical innovations he put into action in the mountain towns of Crested Butte and Salida. While Gary Fisher was fostering the development of mountain biking in California, a hardscrabble group of mountain folk in Crested Butte, Colorado was starting their own fat tire revolution. Short chain stays, radical frame geometry, SPD clips, multi-tools, Shortys & 69ers, cross country racing, off-road touring; Mike Rust was the inspiration, innovator and inventor behind much we mountain bikers and bikepackers hold dear. He went missing without a trace in 2009 in remote part of Colorado. The mystery remains.
