I've been waiting to see that. Where do you go to find out where it's playing?

Outstanding!!!!
Me and about 25 of so others saw this last night in Brandon.
I was very surprised that this turned out to be so well made and exciting.
 
My wife went with me, I had hoped that the movie would not be boring
(she does not ride MTB) because for many years we both raced Motocross and enjoy going to Motorcycle races, which really are more exciting to watch then the typical XC MTB race.
 
She enjoyed it a lot! It held your attention for the entire movie. 
 
Those that did not see this somewhere really missed a very interesting movie.
 
Ps. We already knew that Lance has a motor, this just confirms his motor works pretty good on the dirt too.[/]

For sure. That movie kicked *. I loved it as did my wife and 7 week old daughter who did not make a sound the entire movie. It made me miss Colorado and riding my mountain bike. I thought I'd be the only one there but there were about 20 others.

'Race across the Sky' showing again. 
After its national, one-night-only debut on Oct. 22, the documentary “Race Across the Sky” will play one more time.
“Race Across the Sky” features the 2009 Leadville Trail 100, Lance Armstrong, Dave Wiens and a cast of thousands of adventurous souls taking on the epic high-elevation race out of Leadville, Colorado.
The encore showing is back to select movie theaters nationwide for only one night on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. EST/ 7 p.m. CST/ 9 p.m. MST and 8 p.m. PST.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 6.
Advance purchase for the one-night event is strongly encouraged, as the original October event sold out in select theatres nationwide.

As good as it was, I couldn't get over the $12.50 ticket price. It was the 1st movie I've been to in years though and it was great so I soon got over it.

It's not on Pirate Bay and a quick google search doesn't find anything so - most likely no. But it might be out there somewhere.

Check it out in the theatres if you get the chance. The scenery was pretty cool and seeing it on the big screen I think added to it. .
