Synopsis

As a determined collective of American and Vietnamese veterans collaborate for a sixteen day, 1,200 mile bicycle expedition across the very same landscape where they once vowed to kill each other or die trying, emotional scars cut deeper than any physical wounds. Nearly a quarter century after the last American officials were airlifted to safety from their Saigon embassy rooftop, the preparations are being finalized for The Vietnam Challenge: A grueling bicycle journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. An event organized by World T.E.A.M. (The Exceptional Athlete Matters) Sports, The Vietnam Challenge teamed able-bodied veterans with those who were wounded in battle to highlight the remarkable accomplishments that can be made by those suffering with disabilities. For some participants it was the physical aspect of the race that proved the most challenging, and for others the hardest part was moving out of the past and learning to embrace the future. Joining these exceptional veterans on their remarkable journey are Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts and U.S. Ambassador Pete Peterson. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
