Northstar-at-Tahoe Host’s Movie Premiere of 3 MINUTE GAPS with Giant Bicycles

May 25, 2011

Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort and Giant Bicycles have come together with the Ride Giant / Ride Northstar mountain bike sponsorship program to host the movie premiere of 3 MINUTE GAPS on Saturday, June 18. The event will kick off the summer season with the opening of the Northstar® Resort bike park, the largest lift-served bike park in Northern California. Park visitors will enjoy free admission to the movie, a BBQ, music from local talent and great raffle prizes.

3 MINUTE GAPS is an exciting documentary that follows the world’s best competitive downhill mountain bike athletes around the world as they trained, traveled, raced, celebrated and made sacrifices simply for the ambition of being the fastest rider on the World Cup tour.

3 MINUTE GAPS illustrates a no truer, more accurate and intimate depiction of the very best world cup riders such as Gee Atherton, Sam Hill, Aaron Gwin, Sam Blenkinsop, Brendan Fairclough, Greg Minnaar, Andrew Neethling, Danny Hart, Matti Lehikoinen, Ben Reid, and Josh Bryceland.

Renowned director Clay Porter and filmmaker John Lawson traveled around the globe to capture the athletes’ stories of triumph and struggle in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA, and every round of the 2009 and 2010 World Cup Series and the World Championships.

Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort’s kick off to summer celebration with the 3 MINUTE GAPS movie premiere will include extending the mountain bike park hours of operation until 6:00 p.m. on June 18th. The summer celebration will begin at 5:30 p.m. on the Lodge at Big Springs deck at mid-mountain featuring a BBQ, music by local talent and an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for prizes donated by Giant Bicycles, Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort, Shimano Bicycle Components, and Oakley.

The movie premiere will offer free admission and include a free gondola ride up to the mid-mountain Lodge at Big Springs for those who are not riding the park that day.  For just $10 per person, the BBQ will feature a burger with a side, and a choice of a beer or other beverage.  Proceeds from the BBQ and raffle prizes will benefit the Ride Giant / Ride Northstar mountain bike programs.
