Kyle Strait, Hannah Bergemann and a host of other global bike superstars showcase their skills in incredible locations around the world, from Alicante to Zambia


Teton Gravity Republic’s long anticipated new film Esperanto, which features some of the worlds best riders in incredible locations across the planet, is now out and available for download. Featuring the likes of Cam Zink, Chelsea Kimball and Brandon Semenuk, and locations including Japan, Ecuador, Jackson Hole and Alicante, its a visual feast of seriously impressive riding skills and creativity.

Esperanto is a universal language that was created to bring people together. And while the dream of hearing it spoken around the world may not have been entirely realised, this film asks the question – what if it’s not a language at all? What if riding bikes is the new Esperanto?

“TGR continues to push the boundaries of film and creativity. Esperanto is the latest example of that hard work and commitment,” said TGR co-founder Steve Jones. “This film features some of the most cutting edge riding in the world, shot in stunning landscapes across the globe. Esperanto aspires to bring people together to celebrate the common love of sport and culture.”
