Speed Is My Need

Duration: 74 min

The Isle of Man TT is notorious for ending lives and careers. Racetracks were never built for the increased performance of today’s race bikes, so why do riders risk life and limb in their quest to go ever faster? Speed Is My Need strips bare the euphoria of speed on two wheels, revealing how sports psychologists and surgical experts across Europe are helping riders to rebuild their minds and bodies in order to race on the edge of oblivion. With access to heroic track footage, this documentary is a pulsating ride into the strategic minds and courageous hearts of these two-wheeled gladiators.

Contains infrequent strong language.
