Hitting the Apex – We will not miss this movie, will you?


“This is the story of six fighters—six of the fastest motorcycle racers of all time—and the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport.”

Actor Brad Pitt is talking about Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Dani Pedrosa, Marc Marquez, and the late Marco Simoncelli, subjects of “Hitting The Apex,” the latest film from Mark Neale, the British documentarian and director of “Faster” (2003), “The Doctor, the Tornado and the Kentucky Kid” (2006), “Fastest” (2011) and “Charge” (2011).

In this two-minute trailer for “Hitting The Apex,” which Neale describes as, “the story of what is at stake for all of them—all that can be won and all that can be lost—when you go chasing glory at over 200 mph on a motorcycle,” you see what two-time MotoGP World Champion Lorenzo calls “this hunger and this ambition.”

The experience is not the same for everyone. “We are not just guys that live the dream,” Pedrosa says. “We are also human.”
