This documentary follows the Raam Roses, an amateur British cycling team attempting the RACE ACROSS AMERICA?the most grueling and extreme bicycle race on the planet. Plucky foursome Ollie, Tim, Woodsy and Anna are determined to break the world record for the fastest mixed team to complete the course. Although visually dazzling, the 3000-mile route?stretching from the West to the East Coast of the United States?is notoriously punishing, even for experienced athletes (Woodsy is a heavy-set rugby player, and Anna has never ridden a road bike). From the start, the team suffers a plethora of injuries and setbacks. Will the group conquer their mental and physical exhaustion to fulfill their dream and break the record?
