HITTING THE APEX is the inside story of six fighters - six of the fastest motorcycle racers of all time - and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport. It's the story of what is at stake for all of them: all that can be won, and all that can be lost, when you go chasing glory at over two hundred miles an hour - on a motorcycle. From the director of FASTER and FASTEST, HITTING THE APEX takes us to the heart of this exhilarating sport at a time when the speeds have never been higher or the talent on the track more brilliant. The film portrays the intense rivalry between riders, but also captures evidence of the strong bonds and camaraderie that can exist in top level professional sport: the extreme competition between Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa; the friendship between Rossi and rising star Marco Simoncelli before the tragedy that ended his life on the track. And the phenomenal rise of young rookie Marc Marquez and his attempt to become the fastest and most brilliant rider of them all.
