Muzzin's nickname is "The Cannibal". "The Cannibal" was also the nickname of the real life five-time Tour De France champion 'Eddie Merckx' who also appears in the film. See more »
During stage two in the Colorado National Monument, they start off going the correct direction from East to West, but not far into the stage they are riding next to a rock wall and are going from West to East (the wall is on the riders' right hand side). If they were going the same direction as when they started, the rock wall would be on the riders' left hand side instead of their right hand side. See more »

Not a frequently shown film, but a highly recommended one. A good chance to see Kevin Costner early in his career; you see the spark that made him into one of Hollywood's most prominent actors. Also an early chance to see an odd type of performance from Jennifer Grey, before "Dirty Dancing." You don't have to be a cycling fan to enjoy this poignant movie.
