Race Across the Sky – Leadville Trail 100

Here’s one for you Lance fans out there! Denis Coyne at the Bike Habitat tipped me off to this cool video, the updated HD trailer for Race Across The Sky – Leadville Trail 100.

“Race Across The Sky” Rides into Theaters October 22nd, 2009

The show date is Thursday October 22nd @ 8:00 PM, and will be shown at over 400 theaters across the country. The closest theater is the Sierra Summit Theaters, located in the Sierra Summit Shopping center at the base of Mt Rose Hwy (intersection of Hwy 395 and Hwy 431). Please note that the ticket price is higher than normal for a movie at $12.50 per ticket. If purchased on-line there is an additional $2 convenience fee for each ticket.

  1. It eventually comes out on video right?

    In Reno, on a Thursday, 8:00 at night, $12.50 and No Beer in the Theater kinda painful…

    The best time to see it would be in the camp site at Sea Otter XD.

  2. Lester, I’m assuming there will be a DVD, since there is only one theatrical showing. I sent a twitter inquiry to the promoter, so we’ll see if they reply.

    I also agree it’ll be a little rough getting to the show for me too…school night, homework, Reno, etc. Come on DVD!

  3. i know i could get a 4-pack of Gordon into the theater… thurs night blows tho. heck, we can barely get the tent set up at Otter, let alone a tv/dvd rig. it’d have to be day 2.

  4. I went to the movie last night at the Summit. It was sold out so they were turning people away who did not pre-purchase tickets. I thought it was well done. Of course it was a Lance promotional, all that just showed what a classy guy Dave Wiens is. I wouldn’t be surprized if Chris Carmichael didn’t fund at least a portion of the filming. His company logo was everywhere. There was alot of bike action, and the best part was they did show a fair amount of age group action and stories. Leadville is beautiful country. I would see it again.

  5. As far as DVD goes, I’m sure it will be coming soon. That being said, it sounded to me like they were trying to get a wider release for the film in theaters at this time. They are asking that we go to raceacrossthesky.com to find out how to help.

  6. P.S. Our own Miss Kathy’s face shows up in the film at the mass start of the race… if you get a chance to see it, look for her!

  7. P.P.S. For what it’s worth… the only advertising I saw in the actual film for Carmichael Training were the jerseys they were wearing. Perhaps Kary is refering to the “trivia questions” before the film which were sponsored by Carmichael? To me the film didn’t feel at all like an advertisment for anything other than the race itself, unlike some other MTB films out there. I do think there was a bit too much focus on Lance. But let’s face it, this film likely would have never been made if he had not been involved. The other stories were more heartfelt and compelling, but the showdown between Lance and Dave was where the action was. I liked how they tried to get into the overall emotion of the event and the fact that they all support each other throughout the race. How many races have you seen where the other competitors are cheering for the guy who’s won it 6 years in a row? I have never thought about it before but based on what I saw last night, I hope to someday do this race for the experience alone.

  8. Brent, you’re right there was no blatant Chris Carmichael advertisement, it just seemed like he or his logo showed up a lot. Overall, I really enjoyed it and would like to see it again.
