Firstly, excuse my english because i'm french ! I discovered Obree when i was 15. Usually, in july, when you read newspaper like "L'Equipe", they are always writing about Tour de France's results. That is why i was surprised after having read that a scotstich cyclist had broken the hour record with 51,596 kms ! The most curious thing was obree's egg position on his bike ! What an amazing story ! In my opinion, he was more than an excellent rider, he was a genius ! Because after wcf's new rules about bikes created in 1994 in order to forbiden Obre to use his special machine, he succedeed in becoming again 4 kms on track world champion in 1995. This year, he came again on the track with the "Superman" position ! I was sad when i learnt on a cycling website he tried to suicide twice. To conclude, i would say that this movie is a shining and necessary tribute to Obree ! Unfortunatelly for the french man i'm, there was not french subtitles included in this dvd !
