  • Description

    Hill Climb.

    Location of events unknown - looks like United States of America.

    High angle L/S pan across massive hill and valley in dusty rural area; there are hundreds of trucks and vehicle parked over the hill and lots of people milling about. Crowds watch men on motorcycles speeding off up the hill in attempts to mount it. Side view shows the incredibly steep hill - quite a tough climb! Spectators run to watch a rider who seems about to make it.

    Final shot shows just a handful of people watching a rider making his climb.
