It stated that it was about the HELL OF THE WEST cycling race and based on my fixation with cycling i was in ... I LOVED IT and i want you all to watch it FIND IT RENT IT TRANSFER THE FILE ONTO DVD - Also Kevin Costner looks like Billy Childish. And there is a pretty bad / good soundtrack a la St Elmos fire.

This is Life at its Best
