Team Garmin documentary “Blood, Sweat + Gears” premieres Monday on Sundance


Here are excerpts from the press release, as well as more showtimes:

An original production directed by Nick Davis, Blood, Sweat + Gears follows the journey of an American cycling team seeking to compete in the epic French bicycle race that covers over 3,500 kilometers in 22 grueling days.

Blood, Sweat + Gears chronicles the journey of Team Slipstream-Chipotle, now Team Garmin-Slipstream, a young Colorado-based professional cycling team founded and managed by Jonathan “JV” Vaughters. The team, dedicated to creating the next generation of cycling champions, entered the spotlight when it pioneered the most progressive anti-doping system in all of professional sports. As the film begins, the riders are beginning to train for the 2008 season.

Blood, Sweat + Gears takes us on a fascinating ride as the team travels from the mountains of Colorado; to the first major race of the 2008 season in Doha, Qatar; and on to key competitions throughout the U.S. and Europe, including the Tour of California and Paris-Roubaix. The film also tells the stories of several riders, including Magnus Backstedt, a serene Swede; Mike Friedman, an affable young American rebounding from a life-threatening health incident; the newly-installed team leader, David Millar, who returned to the sport determined to change it after serving a two-year ban; and Christian Vande Velde, who for the first time in his career finds himself as the team leader.
