Giuseppe Marinoni found his calling when he transitioned from champion cyclist to master bike craftsman. But after years hunched over toxic fumes, his passion almost killed him. Today, at age 75, Marinoni is back in top shape, and decided to attempt the world hour record for his age group, all on a bike he built with his own hands almost 40 years ago.

Interesting doc that provides a look at Marinoni's life as an Italian immigrant to French Canada, champion cyclist, custom bikemaker, etc.; trip to his hometown in picturesque northern Italy for a record-breaking race; a famous Canadian bike champion who was paralyzed in a road accident, who had set records with a Marinoni bike that he later gifted to Marinoni and was used in Marinoni's above mentioned race; darkly amusing philosophy about pain, aging, death including old Italian proverb.

I once owned and raced a bespoke Marinoni during my teen years. This is a great documentary about the quirky old guy named Marinoni. He made some great bikes and it is very interesting to see his story.

Truly inspiring documentary about a man who has "mind of steel and heart of angel". It's a humble story too that shows that with love, passion and determination you can conquer the world at any age, but it's the most pleasing if you do that as 75 old! Beautiful!

A very interesting documentary for those who own a Marinoni or any other hand made bike.
Even casual riders would enjoy this inside view of cycling .
Mostly in French and Italian with English subtitles but easy to understand if you have only high school French.
Certainly worth watching.
