Thumbs up Exciting New Sportbike Movie!!

*This post has been generously approved by Sportbike World Admin, Robert Basil*


COMING TO THE L.A. AREA NEXT WEEK!!
AND TO N.Y.C THIS COMING JANUARY...
AND ACROSS THE UNITED STATES IN 2004!!

TWO WHEELS._ 200 MPH._
EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF.

FASTER
Narrated by Ewan McGregor
SCREENS IN LONG BEACH
DECEMBER 12 & 14
AT CYCLE WORLD INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE SHOW

"Finally a movie about motorcycling that isn't
Hollywood crap-u-drama...This is the real deal... We're professionals, don't try this at home."

"'Faster' takes the genre in an extreme level...
a rare view of past heroes and current contenders in an 'unplugged' format with a backdrop of incredible action."
--Robert Redmond, Track Junkie

WHAT:_ The speed, the egos, the broken bones and the babes._ But most of all, the guts, the skill and the touch of madness it takes to ride machines the experts call "evil."_Faster is a must-see for motorcycle fans, and an eye-opening, action-packed experience for the curious novice._

Over the past two years, there has been a massive surge of interest in grand prix motorcycle racing: the new-generation MotoGP bikes have shattered the 200mph barrier, the top riders have become international superstars with multi-million dollar contracts, and the sport's popularity is booming in the US: four of the twenty-four riders in the MotoGP world championship are American, and last year's AMA Superbike race in Laguna Seca attracted well over 100,000 people.

Faster is the most true-to-life look at motorcycle racing ever brought to screen, and an incisive look at what makes a champion._ Narrated by Ewan McGregor ("Star Wars," episodes I, II, III, "Black Hawk Down"), the film follows the 2001-2002 seasons of the MotoGP world championships._Crossing five continents, it features today's top riders, including Valentino Rossi, called "the most sought after racer in the world," and his archrival Maxi Biaggi; the brilliant but injury-prone Garry McCoy; and rising teen star John Hopkins._
Faster also features a raft of former champs who have shaped the way racing is done today, along with the doctor who patches the riders together and puts them back on the track, and the experts in the bleachers who write the history of the sport.

Faster is produced by Spark Productions in association with Dorna Sports SL,
and is directed by Mark Neale._ Music by tomandandy and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

WHEN:_ Faster is screening in Long Beach as part of a national tour on Friday, December 12th at 9:15 pm and Sunday , December 14th at 5:15pm._

WHERE:_ In association with the 23rd Annual Cycle World International Motorcycle Show, presented by Toyota Trucks._ Long
Beach Convention Center, Grand
Ballroom, 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA_ 90802.
(Note: You do not have to attend the motorcycle show to see the film).

HOW:_ Screenings are open to the public._ $15 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under._ Advance tickets through the Long Beach Convention Center Box Office (Mon-Fri 10 a.m.-6p.m., Sat 10-4. Extended hours during show days), or call_562-436-3636.__ Tickets also available at screenings._

Looks awsome. Too bad it probably will never show up in my neck of the woods.

And robert pre-approves all my posts too. He's a very generous man.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Maybe we'll get a group together to see the movie and grab some beers after.
