A motorcycle saga that chronicles the personal journey of two brothers who overcome emotional and physical obstacles to achieve success in the competitive world of Supercross racing. The brothers' conflicts are magnified by their different life choices and their decision to become competitors and rivals. KC Carlyle is a more cautious rider than his younger brother Trip, who has more natural talent but takes too many risks. When KC gets an all-expenses paid factory--corporate sponsored--ride, a rift forms between the two brothers. Trip is forced to go at it alone, becoming a privateer--a rider without a sponsor. But when a career threatening crash ends Trip's Supercross career, he and KC realize that they must put aside their conflicts, and work together to help KC defeat the world's greatest Supercross champions.Written by

During the Florida competition Trip's goggles vary between being Scott in one shot and Dragon in the next. This occurs throughout the race but is especially obvious on the line-up when Trip puts his goggles on. See more »
My name's Trip Carlyle. This is my brother, K.C. We're tight, but that doesn't mean we don't compete.

This is what I call a formula sports flick. The formula the very unknown local underdog plot line. Decent movie. 99.5% predictable. There's one little part at the very end I think doesn't go exactly as you might expect that might surprise about 1/2 the people watching, OK, maybe a 1/4.
Its got some cool race scenes with an OK soundtrack. Fairly interesting characters. Not something I would go out of my way to see but it makes the time fly when you're ironing shirts.
I enjoyed the movie, but its not one I see myself adding to the home DVD collection unless all of a sudden I become and extreme sports race junkie. Watch it if you want to - it won't hurt.
