Moto: The Movie is a documentary that explores the lives of Motocross racers across the United States and the world. For some people, Motocross is a hobby, but for others, it is a way of life. Motocross is a sport where a single rider completes rides across designated courses with man-made and natural obstacles, usually on a two-wheel motorcycle that has been modified with thicker treads and sturdier parts that can hold up against rougher terrain. In competitions, the motorists are judged and scored for their speed, accuracy, and skill in tackling these obstacles in comparison to other competitors. Some competitions involve other types of vehicles, like modified monster trucks. Moto: The Movie shows off the dangerous side of this very high-risk sport, in which there is a large chance of injury and even death for some of the tricks. Because of the extremeness of some of the tricks the riders attempt, motocross riders have gained a large audience, and big-name sponsors like Red Bull fund talented competitors. Moto: The Movie explores the competitive world of motocross around the world. In many competitions and practice fields, large impressive tracks are built that span miles and miles. Rolling mounds of dirt are sculpted into successive hills that allow the riders to tread across them on their dirt bikes in a continuous flowing motion. The movie showcases many of the different types of tracks used around the world, which are each given unique names, including Supercross, Big Mountain, Freeriding, Off-road, Woods, Trails, European Extreme Enduro, and Motocross. The movie also interviews international riders who have developed distinct riding styles to navigate these diverse tracks. Moto: The Movie comes from the makers of WHY, TWITCH, OffRoad, and 6IX.
