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 "450 Nami" bikes, ridden by K.C and Rowdy, are in fact just dressed up Honda 450's. See more »
When Piper Cole does a back flip in front of Trip, the crossover between when the original actor for Piper (Cameron Richardson) and the stunt double is obvious. Cameron attempts the jump normally, as if to complete the jump without a trick. In reality, to perform a back flip, the rider would need to lean back quite substantially half way up the jump in order to get a full rotation. 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.

great stunts(gives a new appreciation of the athletes in this sport)wow!
this movie is not bad at all.some of the stunts these guys(and girls)do in Supercross is absolutely astounding.the way they flip in mid air and the heights they can reach.i have a new respect for these people.the stunts were mind blowing,but very realistic,as far as i could tell.there are some hot women in this movie,naturally.the acting is OK and to me,the plot is thin,but that is not the draw for this movie.the real reason to watch this movie,or any of the genre,are the amazing stunts these guys can do.to say they are talented is a huge understatement.i found this movie pretty exciting.it is only during the dramatic scenes that i didn't like it as much.i just wanted to see those stunts.thankfully,that is what most of the movie is.if you're a Supercross fan,you should love this movie.if you're not,you might still really enjoy it.at the very least,you should have a new appreciation for the athletes involved.my vote for "Supercross":8/10*
