Bernard Hinault: Last King of Bikes

Web Snippet:

Dernier Roi du VeloFrom French Television (5) comes this great documentary on Bernard Hinault, “Dernier Roi du Velo” (Last King of Bikes).

Particularly worthwhile is the scene 32’00” to 33’40” from the Tour de France when the Last King is riding in the L’Etape du Coeur ride and the BMC Team come flying by on their TT Bikes, Team Time Trial style with vehicular support.

Some of the BMC team aren’t too happy that the Last King is sitting on. At 57 years of age.

Worth a pass of the eyeball.

NB: It’s in French and without subtitles. Viewing may be restricted in some regions.
