Rad female riders in new documentary

“THE LINE” is a new documentary film series set to debut in January 2016 featuring female athletes who excel in adventure sports. The first in the three-part series will highlight female mountain bikers, Kat Sweet, Inga Beck and 13-year-old phenom McKenna Merten. They are featured riding the trails around Lake Tahoe, California, and telling stories of what inspires them and how they progressed to be advanced riders.

“The film series allows female athletes to voice their stories and inspire other women while exploring action sports in depth,” said director and concept creator, Casey Kohlhoff.

An avid mountain biker himself, Kohlhoff chose MTB for the first installment of “THE LINE” because, “during my research on female mountain bike riders, I wasn’t finding films that highlighted women,” he said.

THE LINE series will also feature short documentaries about female skiers and rock climbers later in 2016. Preview the mountain bike series.

The line is where the athlete begins, turns and wants to go. She chooses. She controls the line, navigates it, negotiates obstacles and pushes her performance to progress to the next level of her sport. Each episode is a monument to her dedication, progression, adventure and human spirit. Her creativity is only bounded by her imagination and THE LINE.
