The Cyclocross Meeting Screening At The Bicycle Film Festival

I highly recommend a viewing of Brian Vernor's The Cyclocross Meeting.

The Cyclocross Meeting will be screening at The Bicycle Film Festival
Sunday November 14th, 7pm, at the Victoria Theatre (16th & Mission)
Ticket Info Here...

The Cyclocross Meeting will be accompanied by a live performance by soundtrack
contributors Roots of Orchis. Rare footage from Vernor's super 8 archive will be
projected while the band plays.

The Cyclocross Meeting is a documentary meditation on the sport of
Cyclocross and the human connections it inspires around the world. The film
follows pro Barry Wicks and rising star Adam McGrath to Japan where they
compete with seven time Japanese National Champion Keiichi Tsujiura and
the up and coming talent Yu Takenouchi.

A lushly textured paean to the hardships and joys of the excruciating sport of Cyclocross, the
film explores the challenges and personal narrative behind the pursuit of the
"perfect ride." Also featured is a rare interview and visit to the shop of 35
year veteran frame builder, Shigeru Nakagawa.
Richly photographed and married with an evocative soundtrack featuring
Talkdemonic, Roots of Orchis and Blktop Project, The Cyclocross Meeting is a
celebratory exploration of the sport and its beauty as seen by its most
dedicated riders from two sides of the ocean.
