Absolute speed and imminent danger: this thrilling, full-throttle documentary offers a glimpse into the extraordinary world of Irish national road racing.
Following ten individuals over an entire racing season, racers and their families talk candidly about why they take part, and what drives them to pursue such a high-octane pastime. The perils of road racing are ever-present and the fragility of flying down country lanes at speeds of up to 200mph is real, yet their passion and perseverance is unswerving. Even after experiencing injury or tragedy first hand, they still go back for more.
Featuring astonishing race footage and interviews that get right to the heart of this risky, revelatory sport, Road Riders is a fascinating insight into the lives of the men, women and families for whom road racing is not just a pastime, but a way of life.
Road Riders is released on DVD 6th November 2017 from Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.
