Moon Rider: A Documentary About a Lonely Bike Racing Addict

“Like a drug addict who needs his next fix, I want to come as close to dying as possible.”

This is how 18-year-old Rasmus Quaade, the young champion bicyclist at the center of Moon Rider, describes his all-consuming obsession with bike racing. The beautifully shot documentary, directed by Daniel Dencik, delves into the “extreme and lonely life” of Denmark’s next big rider. We’re interested.
