Pantani (15)

The incredible story of a cycling legend to celebrate the Tour Of Britain passing through Dorchester.

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.

The film is a must for all cycling fans, as it captures all the drama and thrilling spectacle of the sport, but is equally fascinating as a human-interest story.
