VIMFF Fall Series Bike Show Benched


World Premiere
9 mins |
Canada |
Bronwyn Davies


On March 12th, pro cyclist and Endurance World Champion, Sonya Looney, posted an Instagram video of herself rocking rollers and sweeping berms through a mini pump track in Kelowna, British Columbia.

Of course, that’s no big deal for a woman who is a four-time U.S. mountain bike champion and winner of numerous stage races.

But at that moment, she was 40 weeks and four days pregnant. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy just a few days later.

In Benched, navigating life as a pro athlete and now a mother, we see that there’s no playbook and that sharing the journey takes more vulnerability and courage than most think, two things Sonya has a lot of.
