    Yes I really enjoyed it.

    The other end of the spectrum, Phil Gaimon - Pro Cycling on $10 a day is an entertaining read and a good look at the life of a neo pro.

    They had the movie on Netflix for a while. It was subtitled.

    The title of the documentary is "My Italian Secret: The Forgotten Heroes".

    I enjoyed "Slaying the Badger", the story of the Hinault/Lemond feud.
