Hitting the Apex 2015 Culture The combustion of fuel and air in the engine and the fire in the heart of a rider willing to risk everything to win. Time is the enemy.

'Hitting the Apex' is the story of six fighters - six of the fastest motorcycle racers the world has ever seen - and of the fates that awaited them at the peak of the sport.
