I have a great passion for cycling! When I was younger (now I’m 36, still younger than Davide Rebellin!) I did cycling until the elite category.
After, I’ve continued to watch cycling on tv.
So, when I finished my previous documentary, I told to myself “What could be the theme for my next movie??”. And the answer was “Cycling, of course!”
About the movie, I had no thesis to express, I just wanted to give up a portrait of cycling.
So I chose the characters with this idea, and so we have:
–“the young”Ignazio Moser, son of cycling legend Francesco
–“the old”Davide Rebellin, expert rider with many victories and scandals in his palmares,
–“the suiveur”, Journalist Gianni Mura, correspondent from Tour de France since Simpson’s death on Mont Ventoux in 1967
–“the mad”EL Diablo, a German fan who represents all cycling fans and enthusiasts
