Education

Ages 12 to 14
This film is not worth viewing in its entirety, mainly because it is dated (it was produced in the late 1970s). Teachers may want to screen clips, however, to show students how, through hard work, training and perseverance, we can succeed in achieving certain goals that we may set for ourselves. In another vein entirely, some segments may be worth viewing to illustrate how the design of racing bikes has evolved.
