Cycling is like literature; endlessly fascinating and full of depth. In 2013, with a plethora of scandals behind us (and unfortunately, most likely ahead of us), cycling is surely at a crossroads. One can wonder such questions as: Who is a hero? Can a honest cyclist who plays by the rules compete at the highest levels? What does it take to be the best? What is the allure and challenge of cycling that drives some to pedal across the globe in search of adventure.? All of these themes are tacked in the incredible 3 film set available only for the first time ever. The collection begins with the Italian film, THE LAST KILOMETER. An examination of the current state of professional road cycling. The Spanish Film 7 DESERTS follows, and it is the first hand diary of a cyclist who attempts to cross the major deserts completely alone and unattended. The set concludes with the highly acclaimed Danish Film, MOON RIDER which reveals the the pain and the glory that combine in the heart of a young cycling champion attempting to become among the world’s greatest cyclists. Three riveting films, three grand adventures, with plenty of humor, scandal and heartbreak with each pedal stroke.
