Team Jackson Hole, a team of cyclists out of Jackson, is sponsoring the showing of ‘Rising from Ashes,’ a documentary about genocide survivors in Rwanda who pursue their dream of a national cycling team. I spoke with Producer Dan Cooper and former professional cyclist Scott Nydam, who helped train the athletes, about what cycling means to Team Rwanda.
The movie will be shown on March 9th, at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, at 6 pm. Cooper and Nydam will be there to answer questions.
