The gravity park Bormio Bike will be back from July 1 | All the news of 2017

Downhill trails that challenge the force of gravity

In Bormio (Alta Valtellina – Italy), summer has finally arrived. The warm temperatures of the last few weeks made the remaining snow quickly melt away. It is wonderful news for our gravity park which is about to open from July 1.

The summer season 2017 of the bike park is predicted as the best of all the time. There are several major news on the trail building side – already at work – which will turn upside-down the riding experience. Since the first DH trail, inaugurated in 2014 – many things have changed at the gravity park Bormio Bike: every year the research, the study and the evolution of our trails have constantly raised the bar of transformation.

Today we are proud to present a complete and equipped bike arena, able to satisfy the demands of pro and rookie riders.

The video #defeatgravity behind the scenes

Behind the scenes: the filming techniques used in the video

Milky Way timelapse Bormio 3000 (00:12 – 00:16)

Francesco and Andrea took a photo of Bormio 3000’s landscape during the day. Then using Photoshop they made the picture look like nighttime and they cut out the mountain, deleting the original sky.

In After Effects they added a timelapse of the Milky Way in ther possession in place of the original sky and  in Davinci Resolve they fixed the colors of the picture and the timelapse to make everything look smooth.

This technique, instead of a simple timelapse, was used for the following reasons:

  • the security of having a clear view of the mountain
  • having the Milky Way in the right position
  • the possibility to freely choose the framing

Framing of the magician with air floating objects  (00:19 – 00:23)

On set the guys shot the magician at normale speed. Then, with the same exact framing, they shot the objects in slow-motion, one at the time, keeping them hung with a nylon cord.

In After Effects the object were cut out and a compositing with the magician’s framing was made.

In Davinci Resolve everything was made more homogenized.

Passage from the magician to the rider (00:32 – 00:55)

Francesco and Andrea first shot the framing with the rider. Then, they shot it again in slow-motion to get the effect of the dirt falling from the sky.

The framing started from behind a black panel which had a twig attached to it. Moving the camera from top to bottom, the woods would get unveiled with the rider in action.

Later, again in slow-motion, the scene of the magician was shot, starting with the framing of the hand and going to black, behind the panel.

Lining up the two framings, the passage from the mountain hut to the downhill trail was made.

Night/day rider passage (02:18 – 02:28)

Same method used in the Milky Way timelapse but with a mask in After Effects to make the night enter the scene.

Saturday July 2 the Opening of the Gravity Park Bormio Bike

The wait is finally over, on Saturday July 2 we are inaugurating the official downhill season in Alta Valtellina (Lombardy, Italy) with the opening of the Gravity Park Bormio Bike.

Last weekend we have already showed a tasty preview of Bormio Bike’s summer season by hosting the Round #3 of Circuito Nazionale Gravitalia. We are getting serious, therefore, Bormio Bike is about to launch the gravity park that defeats the Law of Gravity. It’s going to be an overwhelming mountain biking experience: cross country, freeride and downhill trails stretched on a breathtaking vertical drop of 1,800 meters.
