Melissa Joan Hart,
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

The exterior shots of the Team Nami building are actually the Kawasaki Motorcycle Headquarters formerly located in Irvine, California. They did not however, have a private test track next to the property. 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.

I actually left about halfway through this movie. Because neither the plot and relationships, nor the racing footage, were enough to hold my interest.
When I think about it, I guess the natural movies for comparison might be The Lords of Dogtown, and The Fast and Furious, and whatever that racing movie was that was the contemporary of Fast & Furious, that starred Sly Stallone. All three were far better movies. All three featured lots of racing action and racetrack energy and the like. And all three included some engaging off-track personal dynamics for the racers.
This movie seemed VERY short on plain old race footage and racetrack footage, and seemed to concentrate more on off-track personal relationships. Yet none of these relationships seemed to me to really appeal. "Tight but competitive" is the opening formula: but almost all I saw and heard was competition with little sense of connection. Competition without that connection is frankly very, very unappealing to my taste. I wanted to like these folks, but just couldn't.
