The Hard Road follows a first year professional cycling team through an entire season, documenting their struggle to pursue a dream at any cost. While the canvas of the film is the gritty subculture of American professional bike racing, what arises are issues of loyalty, integrity, commitment and self-knowledge in a singularly, self-sufficient world in which justice is meted out by the sport itself. Follow the riders into their homes and hotel rooms; along in the team van and behind the scenes of the races for an inside look at the team's camaraderie and triumphs, as well as their disappointments, hardships and sacrifices. For the team, financial reward, a certain future and social normalcy are some of the things that must be sacrificed in exchange for a soul-deep engagement with something essential in themselves.

And, by way of miracle, ... Read More »
