In Canyon’s latest installment of This RIDER, they follow ultra-endurance athletes Emily Chappell and Jenny Tough on a trip through Slovenia. The two discuss an otherwise hidden side of their journey with the goal of encouraging others to be kinder to themselves.

“We hope that the film will start a thousand conversations and give people the space and opportunity to bring their own body issues into the light.
