Lightning In A Saddle: The Evelyn Hamilton Story

Lightning In A Saddle: The Evelyn Hamilton Story

Joe Metal Cowboy Kurmaskie presents the unbelievable but true story of cycling’s female Jackie Robinson meets Inglorious Bastards. A record breaker in the saddle barred from racing head to head with men and her dream of competing in the Tour de France. Evelyn fought sexism, actual nazis and her own ambitions to become a war heroine and beacon of humanity. A blazing equality pioneer and champion on and off the bike.

The long, untamed life of Evelyn Hamilton was nearly lost to the sands of time, until one photo set author and adventurer Joe Kurmaskie on a global literary treasure hunt.

Three years later his screenplay’s been optioned by Alsea Entertainment, and book in progress set for a 2019 release.

Hear and see a presentation that will blow your mind and inspire you to cycle with abandon AND fight for a better world. Vintage videos, private collection slides, and a lively retelling of this British emancipated warrior of cycling who literally held the fate of the world hidden in her handlebars.
