On Thursday evening, May 19, at 7:30pm, the Movies at Montgomery Mall will be presenting the "2010 Race Across the Sky" on the big screen. Admission is FREE with all proceeds from concession sales going to the First Descents cancer foundation. Here is a description of the movie:
In 2009, "Race Across the Sky" captured the imagination of countless mountain bike enthusiasts when Lance Armstrong not only won the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, but set a new course record that seemed unattainable. This year, "Race Across the Sky 2010" delves into the resulting race entry boom, including record numbers of citizen riders, all with their own personal reasons for challenging themselves to this epic test of will, strength and endurance. Joined by the toughest elite field this high-altitude century race has ever seen, these riders are tested by one of the most brutal courses known to the sport. From the center of the little mining town of Leadville, Colorado, to the 12,570-foot top of Columbine Mine, get ready to be inspired all over again.
