One man had no limits. This is the epic story of the rise and fall of Marco Pantani, sporting hero. Less than five years after winning the Tour De France "clean," he was found dead in mysterious circumstances. This is the tragic tale of how a young cyclist became trapped in the organized crime of professional sport gone bad.

Beautifully filmed and photographed. Extensive racing film, including Pantani's early years as a junior racer. Thoughtful, honest interviews about a charismatic, tragic individual.

Wonderfully done. I'm not a fan of cycling, but I really enjoyed this documentary and how encompassing it was. 'Pantani' has so many aspects to it: humble beginnings, sky-high motivation, teamwork, doping, media scrutiny, betrayal. It paints a vivid picture of the cycling world and I found that it has really helped me to understand how much goes on behind the scenes. It also helps if your main character is as memorable as Pantani.
