This is a cross posted event, I've posted it in GUGO as well as here.
We saw the 2009 movie, it was fun and inspiring.
In 2009, "Race Across the Sky" captured the imagination of countless mountain bike enthusiasts when Lance Armstrong not only won the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, but set a new course record that seemed
unattainable. This year, "Race Across the Sky 2010" delves into the resulting race entry boom, including record numbers of citizen riders, all with their own personal reasons for challenging themselves to this epic test
of will, strength and endurance. Joined by the toughest elite field this high-altitude century race has ever seen, these riders are tested by one of the most brutal courses known to the sport. From the center of the little
mining town of Leadville, Colorado, to the 12,570-foot top of Columbine
Mine, get ready to be inspired all over again.
Race Across the Sky 2010 will include the all new documentary of tales and tears from the cycling and foot races held this summer and will also feature a live discussion with famous blind adventurer Eric Weihenmayer who rode in this year?s Leadville Trail 100 on a tandem; Olympian cyclists Levi Leipheimer and Jeremy Horgan-Kobelsk; Solo World Female Champion Rebecca Rusch; and Mountain Bike Hall of Famer and six-time Leadville Trail 100 (LT100) champion Dave Wiens, among others.
Citizen Pictures returned to the former mining town of Leadville at 10,200 feet above sea level this August for the Leadville Trail 100, capturing the energy, excitement, drama, human spirit and inspiring stories from one of the most intense endurance races of all time. To film Race Across the Sky 2010, the crew shot breathtaking aerial views of the cyclists as they navigated dangerous mountain terrain and muscled through 14,000 feet of vertical climb.
Race Across the Sky 2010 follows the success of 2009?s Race Across the Sky ? Leadville Trail 100 event, which focused on the August 2009 cyclists? journey ? including seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong ? from the start line to the finish line. Armstrong won the 2009 race, setting a new record time with 6:28:50 ? crossing the finish line with a flattened rear tire.
The upcoming in-theater Fathom event will not only bring stories from the 2010 race to life, but will also update audiences on the latest exploits of the admired 2009 featured athletes. Attendees will witness the impossible from Weihenmayer ? who was the first blind climber to summit Mount Everest ? and watch as Rusch shatters the old 1996 Women?s record by over 10 minutes.
We will meet for a prefunction at the brewpub next to the theater - I think that it is Gordon Biersch or something like that, I'll have my cell with me[masked]
