April 21st, 2011

By Factory Jackson in Features

Pretty stoked on this news –, the exclusive live webcasters of the UCI MTB World Cup, are proud to announce the return of Alex Rankin to World Cup Downhill film making.

Following a 2 year hiatus from the scene, the creator of Earthed and co-creator of Sprung has returned to the World Cup racing to capture his own angle of the sport exclusively for viewers.

Alex will be producing clips for at every round, to compliment the LIVE coverage… and producing a new DVD in September which documents the whole World Cup season.  The DVD will also include what promises to be an epic World Championships in Champéry.

“I’m looking forward to working with the Freecaster Team this season” says Alex “The new film will be an edgy, fast paced, professional but fun, official season review and hopefully a cracking story”.

The DVD will be available to pre-order soon, in conjunction with a special offer… so join our Fan Page on Facebook to hear all the news about release dates as soon as they happen.

You can follow Alex Rankin’s clips, plus all the UCI MTB World Cup action including LIVE races, course rides, news, interviews, tech talk and much much more at:
