Their motto: "We both have something to prove and to prove" Michel, 54, and Heidi, 32, are united by their need for a personal challenge. Michel is the best friend of the father of Heidi. The two men met with their bikers club. Heidi Michel and stimulate each other. They both want to prove their skills and win the race. They are complementary. Both live in the Alpes-Maritimes and are very close despite their difference in age and character. Heidi, realtor, has long sought its way. Today she can not stand the feeling of being the ugly duckling of the family and wants to prove to his entourage that beyond a pretty face, she can excel and complete a project. Michel himself, father of two daughters, is a painter. Father bleeding heart, biker to overflowing emotions, it is the opposite of the man picture "hard" it appears to be. So much so that he wants to prove to his biker friends during this incredible adventure, he will control his feelings and not cry![1]
