a Cross Country Rider
Date Reviewed: November 5, 2005
Strengths: Good informative documentary
Weaknesses: Expensive. Not for pre-ride inspiration.
Dont look for this film to inspire you to ride... like I did. It was an excellent documentary about the races leading up to the (controversial) selection for the US Olympic mens/womens cross country teams. Not only was a good portion of the racing in the rain/mud... the controversy in the end made me not want to know any more about this side of our sport.
To each his own, I guess. I'll rate this film unbiased to the fact that I thought I was going to watch this film, get amped, and go hop on the bike to burn up a trail.
