9 Days Left to Crowdfund El Tour de Tucson Documentary

Posted By on Fri, Nov 15, 2013 at 12:00 PM

El Tour de Tucson is right around the corner, and it's a big deal for a lot of people in this city. Don't you want to know how it all started? Filmmaker Justin Kreinbrink is trying to crowdfund $13,000 to complete filming his El Tour de Tucson: Live the Adventure! documentary. He's currently sitting at $580 and with nine days to go until the campaign is over.

Avid cyclist Richard DeBernardis was riding the perimeter of Tucson, Arizona, in 106-degree heat. Having previously cycled the perimeter of Japan, as well as the continental United States, the concept of a perimeter ride wasn't new to him. However, as he rode through the scenic Tucson mountains, he couldn't help but be drawn to the city. As he found himself thinking back on all of the adventures he had during his previous perimeter rides, Richard realized many of those elements were in Tucson. The man with a thirst for adventure and thriving on sharing those adventures with others, he could come to only one conclusion - "This would be a great ride to open up for people."

And in that moment, the cycling event known world-wide, El Tour de Tucson, was born.

Kreinbrink is says he's going to use the funds to purchase speciality equipment, post production equipment, filming insurance and travel expenses. I'm glad they are taking care of their own food and board. Pledge incentives include digital copies, t-shirts, and posters. You can also buy an executive producer credit. That's the best way to get your own IMDB profile.
