Motorcycle-themed documentary starring Ewan McGregor. 'The Long Way Round' (2004) cemented Ewan McGregor as a somewhat unlikely denizen of the TV motorcycle documentary and here he takes that to the high-octane course-racing scene. The Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca is one of the most revered two wheel contests on earth and here McGregor, along with Mark Neale, turns it inside out for a closer inspection. Going behind the scenes, speaking to the madmen who compete, gauging the preparation involved and investigating the history of the event, McGregor presents a balanced portrait of a big-prize motorcycle race and, of course, has a great time into the bargain.
