EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF...
"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, it shows off the guts, the skill and the touch of madness it takes to ride machines even the experts in the motorcycling industry 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
