It’s not often a bike-themed movie comes along and who knows if we’ll ever see one about Lance. That leaves us American Flyers, Breaking Away, and Quicksilver. In advance of the screenings, there are good reviews of The Flying Scotsman and Seattle is one of the few cities to get it in theaters.
Of course I remember the story in 1993 when Graham Obree broke the world record, had it stripped, won again, and the ongoing battles with his mind. In 1994, I started to get “serious” about cycling and he was one of the most talked about athletes in the sport.
Ain’t it cool news interviews Jonny Lee Miller who plays Obree and according to the reviews, Obree has several cameos in the movie.
