Directed by James Erskine


  • Information


James Erskine directs this feature documentary about the Italian cyclist Marco Pantani.

In 1998 Pantani won the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia, a remarkable accomplishment which has not been achieved by any cyclist since.

Such great success also came with mounting pressure, however, and when he was disqualified from the Giro a year later Pantani began taking cocaine.

In 2004, at the age of 34, he was found dead in a hotel room.

The film chronicles the road racer's success and his untimely fall.
