I bloody love Matt Hunter, not only does he absolutely slay it, he has some interesting ideas as to what constitutes a bike ride, when we saw him disappear into the wilderness in Canada for three days off the back of a seaplane we were impressed. But this new edit in Afghanistan just takes it to a whole other level, kinda makes popping out for a ride round the local loop seem a little tame…
Action Cam by Sony Presents. Dream Capture — Episode II “Forgotten Dirt”
– Matt Hunter’s search for unridden mountain bike trails in Afghanistan’s remote Wakhan Corridor.
In “Forgotten Dirt”, professional mountain biker Matt Hunter and a small team of riders travelled to the remote Wakhan
Corridor in Afghanistan to explore trails that had never been ridden before. But as it turns out, the journey to
reach those trails was the real adventure.
To capture “Forgotten Dirt”, the Anthill Films crew had to travel up to twelve hours a day by bike with camera gear
on their backs. This, combined with the remoteness of the trails, meant that the crew could not rely on traditional
camera equipment. The compact and lightweight nature of Sony’s Action Cam, allowed the crew to document
Matt’s Afghan expedition as it actually happened.
