TGR Presents: Esperanto

On Thursday, July 21 and Friday, July 22, join Teton Gravity Research (TGR) for the Vancouver premiere of their new mountain bike film, Esperanto.  Get hyped to ride with an all-time roster of athletes, prize giveaways from Dometic, Specialized, Tincup, Ride Concepts and more.  
Mixing the rock stars of mountain biking with a cast of unknown and up-and-coming heroes, TGR’s latest film ESPERANTO explores how we share our dreams through a universal two-wheeled language no matter what our native tongue may be. The sacred ritual of the ride might sound different all across the world – whether it’s a full-face getting pulled down to drop into a big jump line or wheeling a beat-up bike out of a mud hut to pedal to school – but it’s a universal process no matter what language we speak.
As we view this visual tapestry featuring next-level riding in unusual locations all across the globe, we hear a voice speaking a language we’ve never heard… There are more than 7,000 languages spoken on Earth. In 1887 a Polish-Jewish doctor named L.L. Zamenhof created a new one, a universal second language based on a combination of existing widely-spoken European languages. Its goal is to help bring people together from different ideologies, beliefs, and nations and ultimately to help end war. The language was called “Esperanto.” Translated into English it means ‘one who hopes.’
Today, Esperanto might remain elusive, but the dream of a shared language spoken worldwide still flourishes. You just have to know where to look for it.
