They are seekers, madmen and angels hell bent on riding across America on a bicycle in less than ten days. What began as the adventure of a lifetime is transformed in an instant when one of their comrades is killed in a head on collision. These voyagers thought it was their bodies that were being put to the test. But after the tragic accident, it is no longer their bodies that are at risk - it's their minds. The riders can only pray for deliverance as they pedal toward the Eastern Seaboard. Written by
Excellent documentary on the world's toughest bike race. Follows some of the individuals on their pursuit of completing RAAM (Race Across America) a solo bicycle race across the USA in 12 days (or less)
The film gives you some perspective on what motivates these men and women to attempt something this grueling and how their perspective of what is important to them changes as the race goes on.
This is not a promotional video for RAAM, as after seeing it most aren't running out of the theaters to sign up for it, yet it gives you a new perspective and respect for those that have attempted and accomplished this amazing event.
