Some of the biggest names in American cycling are scheduled to attend the Colorado premier of the cyclocross documentary "Pure Sweet Hell" at the Trilogy Wine Bar and Lounge in Boulder, Colorado on Monday, January 17. The event is an effort to raise funds to help Colorado Junior cyclocross stars Brady Kappius and Adam McGrath pay for their trip to the 2005 UCI Cyclocross World Championships, January 29-30 in St. Wendel, Germany. The cost of being a member of the U.S. World Championship Cyclocross Team will exceed $3000 per person, none of which is funded by USA Cycling.
"Pure Sweet Hell" is a documentary created by Brian Vernor and Willie Bullion that explores the passion, pain and pleasure of cyclocross. Through creative cinematography and eclectic, original music, this hour-long film captures the essence of what makes cyclocross such a unique sport.
The evening will also feature a preview of the upcoming release "Transitions: An American Cyclocross Season," a documentary chronicling the 2004 U.S. racing season. What started as a class project for Fitchburg State College student Sam Smith is now in the process of becoming turned into a feature-length production.
Join host and nationally acclaimed race announcer Dave Towle and slew of Colorado cycling celebrities in helping to send the future stars of U.S. cyclocross to the World Championships. Every single cent of profit from the evening will go directly to help Brady Kappius and Adam McGrath pay for their trip to the 2005 UCI Cyclocross World Championships, January 29-30 in St. Wendel, Germany.
Tickets are $10 at the door. For venue info and directions visit: www.trilogywinebar.com
