Watch The Levi Effect Documentary
The Levi Effect is the story of professional cyclist Levi Leipheimer who left behind the mountains of Butte, Montana for a life of cramped hotels, endless traveling, and shovelfuls of pasta across two continents. Many talented young athletes do the very same, but few can make a home for themselves amongst the agonizing competition of a grueling sport.
After years of struggling against the world’s top athletes, Levi finally earned a spot in their ranks. Now, at the apex of his career, he finds himself in a place that he’d never considered: Levi's GranFondo, his greatest legacy, is intersecting with one of the darkest eras of the sport and his inevitable journey through it.
In the end, Levi’s unlikely impact on the lives of those around him; the community he unwittingly created, begins to eclipse the headlines of his racing career.
No single accomplishment will ever hold a candle to the changes we engender in the world around us.
