Closer To The Edge Trailer

Hey guys - I don't know if any of you have seen this film/documentary but it is exceptionally good.

The film charts the world-famous Isle of Man TT motorcycle race in 2010. The film was originally filmed in 3D.

All I can say is watch it, watch it, watch it, watch it ... probably something good to watch on these rainy spring days!

PS ~ I grew up in the UK and am intimately familiar with twisty, diving, narrow country roads... I can't even imagine approaching those speeds on them.....

Thanks for the share, though I've seen it already before as I've come across this title after browsing "Mark Neal" documentaries and this title popped up on my radar. Interestingly enough, this docu ended up turning me off to Isle of Man where previously I thought it would be the be-all-end-all for me of all races. After being exposed to "Faster" "Fastest" films and getting an in-depth glimpse at MotoGP's, and later on learning about NW200 races.... I realized I enjoy races that are rider vs rider (+track), rather than just a rider vs track race.


Still though, it's an awesome watch, even if just for the bike porn alone.

It's been available for some time now. Great movie. It's right up there with Faster, DTK & Fastest... half the fun in this one is trying to figure out what Guy is saying
