Now available for the first time, the Bicycle Dreams/Race Across America
DVD 2-pack offers director Stephen Auerbach's two powerful documentaries about the event that Outside Magazine calls the "toughest race in the world."
Winner of 15 film festivals, Bicycle Dreams
is the inspirational true story of the Race Across America, a 3000-mile bicycle race that challenges riders to cross the country in just ten days. They must overcome searing desert heat, agonizing mountain climbs, and endless stretches of open road, all while battling extreme exhaustion and sleep deprivation. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime is transformed in an instant when tragedy strikes the race. By journey's end, some are saved, others are lost, but all learn that the fuel that takes a soul toward its own true destiny is desire.
Race Across America
, Auerbach's first RAAM documentary, captures all the drama and emotion of the race, showing the riders' most difficult moments as well as their greatest triumphs. From the controversial battle for first to the constant struggle to overcome injuries and fatigue, all aspects of the race are covered in intimate detail. Narrated by legendary sports broadcaster Jim Lampley, Race Across America
is an inspirational testament to the power of the human spirit.
"A handful of grueling, yet distinctly human moments grace Auerbach's films, which chronicle this epic race. These scenes encapsulate the soul of one of the cycling world's toughest and most misunderstood events. These films are a success." --VeloNews
