The Way Bobby Sees It is a gripping documentary about Bobby McMullen, a
competitive mountain biker on a mission to race the most demanding
downhill course in the country. Adding to the difficulty: Bobby is
blind.

With the help of a guide and a rigorous training schedule, Bobby is
determined to race his bike down a course riddled with obstacles and
flanked by steep, life-threatening cliffs. But, the racecourse isn’t the
only challenge in Bobby’s life. Between thrills, spills and jaw dropping
helmet camera footage, we see how Bobby uses humor, determination, and
unshakeable optimism to battle adversity – both on and off the bike.
