WINNER OF OVER 9 AWARDS (ACADEMY AWARDS, GOLDEN GLOBE, BAFTA) AND 9 NOMINATIONS IN 1980. One of the best-loved baby boomer films ever, this 1979 Peter Yates (Bullitt, The Deep) film is not only tons of fun, but centres around cycling. A small town teen aged boy obsesses about the Italian cycling team. He and his friends are desperate to ride away from their restrictive town, and to avoid the college snobs. Its a passionate cry for freedom that all teens feel, and resonates today more than ever and features great cycling footage to boot!
