Hitting The Apex – Mark Neale’s Latest Documentary

The steady stream of new documentaries concerning motorcycles continues, with the latest film titled Hitting the Apex. It comes from Mark Neale, a name many may recognize from previous features he’s released including the brilliant Faster, as well as The Doctor and Fastest. His latest film again focuses on Moto GP and chronicles from the time that Valentino Rossi joins Ducati up until the start of this years’ season.

That means in addition to Rossi it focuses on the likes of Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Marq Marquez and the late Marco Simoncelli. Unlike previous documentaries Neale has produced, Brad Pitt narrates the film instead of Ewan McGregor – both of whom are well known bike aficionados.

Hitting the Apex will be screened in select cinemas in the UK from 2 September with it coming to the US in the near future. No dates have yet been confirmed for Canada or Australia. Regardless, it will be available for digital purchase from 7 September.
