Storyline

Laurie, a professional downhill racer gets fired because of her slight overindulgence in irresponsibility. She returns to Montreal where she is welcomed by her geeky but cute brother. She meets Lorenzo, a cranky, ex-racer who owns a bike shop. The two become friends. Laurie gets a job with a local bicycle courier company, but a member of the group is intent on shutting her out of their circles, making her life difficult and sad. After a bonding truth-revealing discussion between Laurie and Lorenzo, Laurie begins to see what she has to do to make things better for herself. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Good acting and great from a cyclist's perspective
6 February 2016 | by Ned NettervilleSee all my reviews

I loved this quirky movie in English and then French with subtitles. The initial (English) scenes at a downhill mountain-bike race at Mammoth Mountain is great although I would have like more of the dh racing 'cause it is a hoot. However, the scene in the bike shop where Lorenzo throws out a customer who had the audacity to ask the price of the fine Italian road bike in the window is priceless. All bike-shop owners should be like Lorenzo. The fact that the heroine is a lesbian and there are a few sex scenes didn't bother me, and I'm as straight as an arrow--sexually speaking that is. I found the acting great with only a few exceptions in minor characters.
