Description

Dave (Dennis Christopher) and his working-class friends Cyril (Daniel Stern), Moocher (Jackie Earle Haley), and Mike (Dennis Quaid) spend their post-high school days in Bloomington, Indiana, sparring with snobby students from the local university, chasing girls, and – in Dave’s case – dreaming of competitive bicycle racing. The four friends face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave’s dreams come true in the university’s annual bicycle endurance race.

 

In Attendance: Actor Dennis Christopher
