The Joy of Riding

The Joy of Riding is a new film about the life of an Azorean privateer MTB rider, who has recently become a father.

With the start of another year comes a new season to prepare for.
A motivational clip about the determination of a Portuguese MTB athlete was our first thought when trying to come up with this documentary. João Machado seemed to be the right person to face this character since he had recently become a father and wanted to continue pursuing his dream of achieving top results this upcoming season.
The life of an Azorean privateer MTB rider, that has recently become a father.  Certainly not an easy task, but things seem to be heading in the right direction.
A clear long relationship between João and the mountain biking world, 14 years to be exact.

Here also stays the memory of one of Machado´s best friends Marco Fidalgo, who passed away 3 years ago.
