When Isla Short approached The Overland and our sister brand Morvélo early last year, we were shocked. This amazingly talented XC mountain bike racer was shunning the traditional team set-ups and instead forging her own path, selecting brands which she had an affinity with rather than those she had a responsibility to ride for.

Out of all the cycle and outdoor brands the fact she chose small, independent brands such as ours was a powerful moment. She is a rare breed. Someone who thinks independently and is permanently stoked to be simply riding bikes, let alone racing them in World Cups. A real inspiration to all that you can, with a strong will and real passion, dictate life on your own terms and that there is ultimately always other options.

Sole, a film by her chosen bike sponsor Orbea, documents her journey and life on the road as an independent.

Also a special mention to Euan Camlin, her mechanic/supporter/fixer who features in the film and is also an Overland ambassador. Also a Scottish, talented and enthusiastic all round bike rider, you do begin to wonder if it is something in the water up there!
