Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking

Shuttle Rewind is a retrospective look at downhill MTB culture in Tropical North Queensland, in particular the Kuranda Downhill Track,

Generations of riders have cut their teeth on the track, including Michael Hannah who set the long standing record for the most runs in one day (70) and went on to become a world class downhill competitor.

The story follows Rhylee Herd, an indigenous teen who has grown up in Kuranda and from the age of 12 started riding the Kuranda Downhill track, in the footsteps of his ancestors.

Rhylee makes a special pilgrimage along the paths of his ancestors through traditional Djabugandji land, where he meets Ben Bramham, who was an instrumental figure in shaping Downhill mountain biking in Cairns, and the world when they re-opened the Kuranda trail in the late 80s and started racing on the track in 1991. One of the first downhill races in the world.

Shuttle Rewind pays homage to the traditional owners of the land as well as the pioneers of mountain biking and the many waves of riders who have ridden the track for the last 2 decades.

The boom box painting and references through the film pay respects to the crew who started the legendary MudCows movement, which painted the Cairns Downhill MountainBIke culture into the psyche of riders all around the world.
