Bell Built Devil’s Racetrack Mini Doc

“I think we got more votes for the Knoxville trail, than we did in prior years for three projects combined”

Check out this Mini Doc showcasing the Bell Built process from concept to completion. For the third year in a row, Bell and IMBA awarded the Bell Built Trail Grant of $100,000. 9 communities competed feverishly and when the smoke cleared Knoxville, TN won the grant. Find out how the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC), Legacy Parks, International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and Bell Helmets helped bring this project to life.

Extra special thanks to our friends at The Frame Theory for the amazing video work.

At the core, it’s about the communities that have embraced this type of recreation and its connection to the outdoors, making it part of the sustenance that fuels everyday lives.”
