Log in to play this film

For most of us, those cyclists running at the back of the race are simply the losers. Arūnas Matelis followed these Sancho Panzas of professional cycling for 7 years during the prestigious „Giro d’Italia“ and reveals the unseen world of these wonderful losers of professional cycling from the point of view of the doctors’ team. Our bike heroes crash, rise — and race again. “The film is like an Odyssey with the medical team and the main characters; days and nights, the race in the claustrophobically small medical car with wounded cyclist around as if on the front line of war, nights in massage sessions or hospital wards where life time gregarios Svein, Daniele, Paulo open doors to reveal the human strength, pride and self-sacrifice, illnesses and essential values, major discoveries and losses. “
