In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia--a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions--the saviour of professional cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap Italian hotel room.
This film is not just about cycling but an emotional exploration of what drives athletes to compete; man versus mountain, athlete versus the system, Marco Pantani versus himself.
Extended interviews with Greg LeMond, Matt Rendell and Richard Williams.
This is an excellent film about how these amazing athletes are commodified by corporate giants. We can only guess at what is really going on behind the scenes. Read morePublished 12 days ago by CC

A tragic loss. Marco enjoyed his first victory upon his red Vicini bike when only 14 years old. Very sad that Signor Pantani left us ALL after only twenty years. Read morePublished 20 days ago by King Arthur
