The GiddyUp! Film Tour is bringing the best short-length mountain-bike films together and presenting them during the 2016 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships. It is a unique social event bringing mountain bikers and other riders together for an evening of cold beers, good conversation, killer schwag and the best films in mountain bike cinema.
It’s all also for a great cause, because doing good feels good. The Amy D. Foundation is GiddyUp’s non-profit partner and a portion of the proceeds from the show will go to the Amy D Foundation to empower girls and young women in cycling.
There will also be a raffle of great items from a variety of sponsors including Clif Bar, Feedback Sports, HandleBar Mustache, Training Peaks, Panache Cyclewear, the Amy D. Foundation and others. The grand prize is a set of carbon wheels from Kappius Components. The complete wheel set is valued at more than $2,000.00, USD, and the winner can choose any flavor they like—CX tubular, 29er, 27.5, FAT, etc.
The event is early during nationals week, on Wednesday January 6th, at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. Doors open at 6:30 pm for social/happy hour and the show kicks off at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15.00, USD, in advance or $20.00, USD, the day of show.
