DVD and Android download also in pipeline, cinema screenings continue

Graeme Obree’s Battle Mountain film, which follows the former world champion and Hour record holder’s attempt to break the International Human Powered Vehicle Association’s speed record in 2013, is now available to pre-order on iTunes.

A DVD is also in the pipeline for the film, which Obree says has received a “tremendous” reception from the cycling community, and a download for Android devices will be coming “very soon.”

The documentary has been touring cinemas across the UK in recent months, often accompanied by a Q&A session with Obree himself, and further screenings are scheduled.

You can find out more details about the Kickstarter-funded film here, including future screenings.

Battle Mountain will be released on iTunes on 4 July, costing £9.99, and can be pre-ordered here.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
