Mountain Biking Extreme: Follow the Vertriders on their unconventional trails through Namibia, a wide open land of extreme harshness and surreal rocks. Three mountain bikers from Austria, Axel, Sylvia and Lars, set out to explore the granite of the “burning mountains” of Namibia’s Brandberg massif for a rideable trail. Not knowing what to expect from the Brandberg massif, the vertriders are eager to find out if their technical style of mountain biking works in as different an environment as the “burning mountains” of Namibia.
