'Hitting the Apex' is the story of six fighters - six of the fastest motorcycle racers the world has ever seen - and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport. It is the story of what is at stake for all of them: all that can be won and all that can be lost when you go chasing glory at over 200mph - on a motorcycle.Written by
Every Sunday, as night begins to fall on Coriano, a flame ignites and burns in memory of Marco Simoncelli for 58 seconds. Grand prix motorcycle racing is the process of turning fire into speed. The combustion of fuel and air in the engine and the fire in the heart of a rider willing to risk everything... to win.

A thrilling ride. This is a must see for any motor sport racing enthusiast. An intricately woven story which follows the storied racing careers of MotoGP Euro Italian legends Valentino Rossi and Marco Simoncelli, and their rival Spaniards. Intricately shot, the slow motion footage (ala Ron Howard's Rush 2013) of the quickest, most advanced motorbikes on the planet taking corners on legendary circuits throughout Europe puts you right in the saddle. Brad Pitt's narration, soothing and paternal adds the sort of star power and prestige this Euro racing docudrama deserves. 58, your legend lives!
