This in-depth sports documentation shows Christoph Strasser's first appearance at Race Across America, the longest and probably toughest bike race in the world. Across accompanies the young Austrian extreme cyclist and his team with the preparations and the race across America, through all the ups and downs that await them.

In an exhausting 36 minutes you not only get an insight into the ultra racing bike scene, but also answers to the two most important questions:
How extreme is this sport and what ultimately determines the outcome of such a race: body or mind?
