Just 4 words of warning though.. *DON'T READ THE BACK* of the video box - it gives the entire plot away down to the finest detail...
It's not often I give full marks for a film but this one failed to disappoint me in any way. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Charlotte Laurier plays a professional downhill mountain bike racer who hesitates by two seconds just before starting the biggest race of her life ... and loses by that very same two seconds. After being fired by her team, she returns to her native Montreal and gets a job as a bike messenger.
Needing service one evening, she discovers a small shop owned by a cranky Italian former professional road bike racer (and now master mechanic).
The two clash at first, but over time grow to understand one another. The classic scene is when the two hold a competition of sorts ... what about? You'll just have to watch the film to find out.
But it's not the only way...
The 'competition' is hilarious. As is the shopowner's reaction to the protagonist's first request.
