This is a story of rising to the ultimate challenge. Having the courage to risk fatal expo- sure and the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely physical feats, they are mental conquests.
If you came into this film wanting a gripping story, insightful information, or any plot line at all - you'll be disappointed. But if you love gorgeous terrain, over-cranked shots of mountain biking, and a driven sound track, this is the film for you.
I caught a screening of this outdoors on an HD projector - likely how it was meant to be seen. I noticed that the film was sponsored by bike company Shimano. This was a telling title card that should have warned me of the content to follow. A narrator poetically draws a metaphor about the river of life and the birth, growth, maturation, and death of a bicycle... but it's a strain to have any emotional connection to a spinning hunk of metal. The blooper reel for this movie must be to die far - literally.
Imagine a 47 minute commercial for a lifestyle obsession and you have this film. It's beautiful bike porn.
