They are unknown
They are dedicated
They are brave
Fighting for their dream
Ignoring hours of pain
Giving it all to embrace the single chance
Just for the perfect moment
The moment of triumph
They are following a demanding road
Lined with unforeseen challenges
But they will not give up
And we will all be proud of their achievements
Competing at the toughest bike race in the world
The Giro d’Italia
This is our story told
This is our moment
Against all odds

“Audax Alpine Classic”: Cinematic Time-Lapse Cycling Film Directed By Nathan Kaso (2014)

Bright 2,200 cyclists tackled several different courses of up to 250km which included ascents of Mount Buffalo, Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and Tawonga Gap.

Filmed, Edited and Directed By:  Nathan Kaso

In my four days of shooting I covered nearly 2,000km through the Victorian High Country capturing cyclists, landscapes and the local towns.

The film is shot on a Canon 5D Mark III with 17-40mm f/4L, 24-105mm f/4L and 70-300mm f/4-5.6 as well as the Emotimo TB3 Black motion control head. Some aerial footage was captured using a DJI Phantom with H3-2D gimbal and GoPro Hero3+ Black shooting 2.7K Protunes. Images were processed in Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and LRTimelapse, while the film was edited in Premiere Pro and After Effects.

The soundtrack and audio mix was produced by Tom Day soundcloud.com/tomday

Poem By:  Laurence Eaves

“The trail stretched out in my wake,
Marks the path of my trial.
Each centimetre step I take
Will add to make up miles

Where are the stars which shared the load
By lighting up the track;
The wind that used to whip the road
And press upon my back?

Though every weary tread will tire
This body, bruised and sore,
The lonely ache of my desire
Demands me to endure.

Each slow and heavy stroke reminds
Me of how far I’ve come,
From loving faces, left behind
With memories of home.

But I push past the pressure of
This struggle to survive,
And make my mind the measure of
How much I am alive.

The sun now slips down from the skies
And sleeps through the moon’s reign,
But soon, together we will rise
And start the chase again.”
