Darren Berrecloth - Rider: "We’ve done a lot of films through the years. This one was a long time coming. It was definitely a big push – we had to deal with a lot of stuff, hiking, camping, not being able to have a shower... It was a big ordeal, a tough gig. We’ve always tried to push the envelope and we really had to dig deep as riders. The dirt was unlike anything else we’d ridden on before. We just had to drop in and hope it worked."

Andreu Lacondeguy - Rider: "Everything about this film is dfferent [from what has gone before]. We used to just show up and ride, but in this film we were part of the journey. It’s about going somewhere you’ve not been before. I’m pretty stoked about seeing it."

Derek Westerlund – Freeride Entertainment: "I’m happy to be here, it’s finally the big moment. We [wanted to make Where The Trail Ends because we] did everything we could with New World Disorder. It was time to take a break and hit the reset button, it was time to take a look at what could be done with the freeride mountain bike movie."

Jeremy Grant – Director: "We put a lot of time in to this film and we’re ready to unleash it on the world. I think [the premise] comes from a really simple place, we’re all mountain bikers and we all got into the sport from a very young age. The sport started to move away from what we knew and we really wanted to bring it back to where it came from."

Travis Rice – Snowboarder: "It’s straight humbling. I’m really excited to be here as a supporting fan of the art of filmmaking. I can’t wait to see the film."

Steve Fisher - Kayaker: "I don’t know what I’m doing here, a kayaker in the middle of Vegas surrounded by mountain bikers. What an honour. When we come to an event like this, it’s clear we’re all like-minded. We all like to push ourselves to the brink of a precipice where we’re forced to sink or swim. We’re all very much alike in that way. I’m honoured to be associated with them through Red Bull Media House."

Jeremy Grant – Director: "We made the film we wanted to make and we’re really excited about people seeing it. We’ve told a story that’s never been told before. We’re really excited."

Cam Zink – Rider: "Every journey was different in its own way but for an overall experience China was the most interesting place; there was really good riding with a good mix of everything."

Jazzy Jeff – DJ: "Just to see where it [the sport of freeride mountainbiking] was and where it is now is great. Everywhere you go in the world, everybody is into extreme sports. To be playing in Las Vegas in support of a film like this is great. Red Bull are really doing it big."

Drew Bezanzon – BMX Rider: "I’ve got nothing but respect for these dudes. I’ve got mad love for all of them. I think the size they’re going is inspiring us to see what we can do on a BMX bike."

Andreu Lacondeguy – Rider: "I really think this will be a game changer. I think mountain biking is going to go somewhere else after this."
