100% Woman

Karen Duthie's intriguing 2004 documentary video profiles Michelle Dumaresq, Canada's reigning female downhill mountain bike champion, who spent her first 20 years as a man before having gender reassignment surgery. Competing across Canada on the amateur women's racing circuit, she provokes antipathy among fellow bikers, who insist that she retains superior strength from having been male. Dumaresq is collegial yet doggedly determined to compete as a professional someday.
