The trailer has been released for Inspired to Ride, the Mike Dion-directed film made about last year’s Trans Am Bike Race, which has its premiere in Denver on 11 April.
The cameras follow riders including Yorkshire’s Mike Hall and Italy-based Juliana Buhring, who respectively won the male and female categories of the coast-to-coast, unsupported race.
So far, only screenings in the US are listed on the documentary’s website – although in a comment to an earlier story on road.cc, Edinburgh Festival of Cycling said they were hoping to screen it in June.
