RJ Ripper is a coming-of-age tale of Nepalese MTB champion and 2018 National Geographic adventurer Rajesh Magar. Magar pushed forward with his passion for bike riding despite growing up in a challenging environment. He entered his first mountain biking competition on a self-modified bike using discarded plumbing pipes welded with a coil spring from a scooter at the mere age of 16. This film follows Magar’s journey from the trash and fume-filled streets to become a bike rider speeding through the Himalayas. (JANG Bo-young)
