The film takes an analytical look into the psyche of one of the most brilliantly talented, yet aggressively self-destructive minds of our generation. Larry Linkogle is a world-record holding dirt bike legend and a man battling his inner demons as he struggles to maintain structure, sobriety and self-control. Incredible archival footage, colorful characters, and interviews with the industry's top names rebuild the thrilling story of the birth of freestyle motocross. Past and present storylines intertwine to drive the film toward one of only two possible conclusions: a nose dive straight into a black hole or one of the best comeback stories of all time.
“In shaping the Linkogle documentary - we agreed to give both his friends and enemies an equal voice. There was zero ego and Larry wasn't afraid to show the underbelly of his 'dark period'. There are parts of the film that he is not proud of, and probably wasn't thrilled to have his family to see, but he never once asked me to edit or pull anything out - which made me really respect him. I've realized that when you get the most hard-core people on the planet giving sincere interviews, you have the power to send a strong message - whether that was the initial intention or not,” said film Writer and Director Adam Barker of Lone Gut Productions.
