On Jan. 21, 2012, Supercross champion Trey Canard was involved in a devastating, back-breaking crash while racing at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif.
REvival 41 is the much-anticipated documentary that follows Canard throughout his recovery process including countless doctors’ appointments, surgeries, physical therapy and an emotional visit to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., where he will race competitively for the first time on Saturday. Doctors told Canard it would be a year before he would ride again; it took him less than six months to get on a bike.
REvival 41 is the perfect sports story: it chronicles the tale of an athlete’s comeback and attempt to reconcile the tragedy of the past and the pain of the present with an unshakeable belief for the future.
“People say that what you believe in is a fairy tale. But I don’t believe that at all,” said Canard. “I believe that I was put on this earth to ride a motorcycle.”
