  • Description

    Full title reads: "California. The Hill won! - proving there's always plenty of room at the top. Not one cyclist succeeded in reaching the summit, despite desperate attempts."

    California, United States of America.

    High angle shot looking down steep hill.

    A crowd are gathered at the foot of the hill. Lots of cars are parked there.

    Various motorcyclists try to ride their motorcycles up the hill. They all fail to reach the top of the hill. Some fall off quite spectacularly.
