About the project

TransAtlantis is an extraordinary mountain bike race that takes place in the stunning Azores. The riders are challenged with mixed terrain over five full days of intense competition. Michiel and I captured this unforgettable event by running after the bikers, sliding over soaking wet soil, and jumping over volcanic boulders. Despite sleeping in a tent for the entire week, we persevered and successfully documented the excitement and drama of the race. The resulting film provides a clear and compelling window into this unique and thrilling event.
