Reeling with grief in the wake of a tragic automobile accident, retired veteran cyclist, Chris Carmik, is given an opportunity he doesn't want, to train a rookie cycling prodigy. Preoccupied with battling his own inner demons, Chris reluctantly acclimates the prodigy, named Jake, to the fast paced world of Bicycle Racing. Using cutting edge technology and scientific training methods, Chris transforms Jake into a top contending cyclist; however, he struggles to teach Jake the most important lesson prominent in all champions - finding the true potential inside. Written by
Star and producer Scotty Curlee plays a champion bicycle rider like Lance Armstrong who after losing his small daughter in a car accident gives way to a lot temptation for substance abuse. But the chance to coach Michael Cuddire who is switching sports from competitive skiing to bicycling gives some reason to get out of bed in the morning with daughter gone and wife Sharon Weston having left him because she couldn't take his new bad behavior.
Curley and Cuddire prove good for each other as it turns out because Curley's training is good and Cuddire imparts his faith to Curley.
As a Christian film this one isn't too bad and might be viewed by more than church audiences. One thing in which the story fell down was the rivalry between Curlee and fellow cyclist Jordan Whiley. These two really can't stand each other and we never find out what the beef was all about.
Still The Potential Inside has merit beyond church circles.
