Ascend - 6min
As a young adult, Jon Wilson lost his leg to cancer. During his recovery, Jon's family and friends bought him a bike. He hopped on it and through the pain he felt a rush that he knew was both inspirational and essential. Since that day, mountain biking has played a critical role in helping Jon sink his teeth back into life. Ascend is a six-minute short that attempts to articulate how a passion feeds, nurtures, and elevates one's physical and spiritual ceiling. Simon Perkins, the film's director, wanted to give others a glimpse of why he feels lucky to call Jon a friend. 'Jon does three important things for me in my life: he inspires me; he gives me perspective; and he repeatedly puts me in my place, especially on single track'
