Storyline

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 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 hotel room, from acute cocaine poisoning. He had been an addict for five years. This is the story of the tragic battles fought by the most important Italian cyclist of his generation; man versus mountain, athlete versus addiction, Marco Pantani versus himself.

Sad story
20 April 2020 | by llm-malavearSee all my reviews

Such a sad story about a man with a remarkable ability to climb the mountains faster than I can go down hill. I don't know if anyone will ever ascend like Pantani did. But then come crashing down so quickly.
