Over the past six months, videographer Liam Murphy has followed the making of BikePark Wales, the UK’s first large-scale commercial mountain bike park. As the park nears completion, he’s compiled a video trilogy following the Cognation team through the highs and lows of the construction process.
Filmed in February 2013, a full four years after work on the project began in 2009, episode one follows the team as construction begins on the site in Gethin, South Wales. The video gives an insight into some of the trails and terrain you can expect to see at the park, as well as the time and effort involved in making it all happen.
