At long last, we have the trailer clip for the upcoming Sibirsky Extreme Trail DVD. There are many more months of editing still to go, but I hope to have something ready in the new year. As always, it will be available exclusively at www.Adventure-Spec.com.
Mapping an offroad trail from the EU to Magadan, the Sibirsky Extreme crew set out on adventure motorcycles, from the Poland-Ukraine border, in May 2012, with a plan to spend over 3 months on the road.
The goal: To map an offroad trail route all the way from the edge of the European Union, across Eurasia to the Pacific Ocean at Magadan. The planned route took in Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Siberia and involved riders from the UK, Holland, US and Norway as they took on challenges as diverse as the steppes of Russia, the mountains of the Altai, the grasslands of Mongolia and the pinnacles of Siberian adventure challenges, the BAM Road and the Road of Bones – Old Summer Road.
This video is a trailer for the DVD that resulted from the trip, currently being put together, with an anticipated release of early 2014. The DVD will be available exclusively at www.adventure-spec.com
More recent news: The Moroccan Extreme trip in late 2011 was a bike test for the Sibirsky Extreme Trail in 2012. The bike had been rebuilt after being stolen at the end of 2010, faster, stronger and funkier than ever before. The DVD features footage from the Dakar pistes we rode in Morocco as well as a bonus free data disc featuring full 2 week tour schedule for Morocco, including tracks, waypoints, hotels, fuel and Garmin compatible OSM maps of Morocco. Available on in PAL at present, tho US buyers can watch PAL DVDs via their computers.
Just days before the final cut is sent off to the DVD printers, the Sibirsky Extreme DVD is now on the Adventure-Spec website and is available for pre-order! Woo-hoo! When it emerges from the printers, there will be both an NTSC (North America) and a PAL (rest of the world) version.
The Sibirsky Extreme Project film is almost done … A preliminary cut of the Sibirsky 2009 video was indeed shown at the recent Horizons Unlimited meet in the UK. Some technical sound problems plagued the debut screening (3rd party equipment). It was only the 2nd time I had seen the film (it was shown to me by the editor 5 hours earlier).
There are still some minor bits of tuning to be done. Sound levels balanced, colour balanced, and a few clips are in the wrong order and wrong place. A few subtitiles (translations) need to be added. But its almost there
