Race Across the Sky

On October 22, the documentary Race Across the Sky – Leadville Trail 100 and live panel discussion featuring Lance Armstrong, Dave Wiens and other great professional and amateur cyclists are coming to over 400 movie theaters nationwide. For only one night, people from across the country will gather together to hear from Lance Armstrong, Chris Carmichael, Dave Wiens, Travis Brown and others as they discuss the triumphs, difficulties, and experiences that make the Leadville Trail 100 the most extreme one day mountain biking race out there.

In addition to the panel discussion hear extraordinary stories from amateur cyclists whose stories will move and inspire you. Stories include a Leadville woman who was critically injured training for the 2008 Leadville Trail 100 and came back to compete this year; a 45+ year old man who has competed in the Leadville Trail 100 for 15+ years, and a woman struggling with MS.
