Chasing the Championship
Chrissy Rouse is not your typical bike racer. Part time maths teacher and successful podcast host, he faced a huge challenge in 2020 to come back from injury and compete for the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 title. This film tells the story of how COVID-19 impacted his team, shattered his plans and ultimately threw him a lifeline for his recovery and championship hopes. On October 6th 2022, Chrissy tragically passed away following a crash at the penultimate round of the British Superbikes Championship. This film is dedicated to the Rouse family and the loving and lasting memory of Chrissy. “Life is short. Pursue your dreams.” Winner – Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival 2021.
