The theme song to “The Grinch” describes the eponymous character’s soul as “An appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable,” and that’s pretty much how we feel about biker movies.

On Any Sunday – The Sequel + Video
As a motorcyclist, few movies carry the same monumental and emotional weight as On Any Sunday. The film was the moto-movie of record for an entire generation of riders. No film before or since has captured the pure joy, thrill and skill of motorcycling quite like it. Forty-three years later and Dana Brown, son of original director, Bruce Brown, has recaptured that excitement for the next generation. The title: On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.
Shot in 4K Ultra HD, Brown traveled across the U.S. and the world, capturing what it means to ride motorcycles. Racing is covered in many forms, including MotoGP, Speedway, Supercross and even the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (not-so-fun fact: that’s the very bike I crashed being repaired at the 1:26 mark), but the film isn’t just about racing. In the teaser video below we get a quick glimpse of Roland Sands, former road racing champion turned custom bike builder, and we also hear the voice of Randy Mamola, the face of Riders For Health, the foundation which raises funds to bring medical aid to the farthest reaches of Africa via motorcycle.
The film, which was produced in conjunction with Red Bull, is set to be released in the Fall.
