- Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist
The unique and compelling story of one man taking on the mountains, an athlete's battle against addiction, set against the dramatic background of the Alps during the Tour de France, Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist is the tragic tale of Marco Pantani versus himself. In 1998, Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia. This titanic feat of physical and mental endurance has never since been matched. Pantani was a hero to millions and was seen as the savior of cycling during a time when doping scandals threatened to destroy the sport. But six years after this extraordinary feat and only 34 years old, tragically, Pantani was dead. Discovered in a cheap Italian hotel, he died alone from acute cocaine poisoning. Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist explores the true story behind this remarkable man's achievements and his tragic fall.
