The Italians have always been passionate about the sport of cycling. This programme looks at four of their greatest athletes and pays tribute to their exploits in the greatest cycle race of them all, the Tour de France. See how Gino 'the Pious' Bartali, a deeply religious man from Tuscany, famously won two Tour de France titles in 1938 and 1948. This ten year gap between victories remains the largest in the Tour's history. Watch in awe as the inspirational story of Fausto Coppi is told. Regarded by many as the greatest cyclist of all time, see how 'Il Campionissimo' won the Giro D'Italia aged just 19, before taking two Tour de France titles in 1949 and 1952. This DVD also features the remarkable story of Felice Gimondi and the incredible, yet tragic tale of Marco Pantani, one of the greatest climbers to grace the Tour. Featuring incredible archive footage from the Tour de France and exclusive interviews with the likes of Felice Gimondi, Raymond Poulidor, Charly Gaul, Jacques Goddet, Raphael Geminiani, Bernard Gauthier and many others, this is the story of four of cycling's greatest names.
