Cyclisme : le dernier sprint

| 27 min

Court métrage documentaire tourné lors des épreuves cyclistes des Jeux olympiques de Montréal, en 1976, et de celles du Commonwealth à Edmonton, en 1978. L’élite est au rendez-vous et se nomme Morelon de France au sprint, Lowell et Singleton du Canada sur tandem, Steve Soughin de l'île de Mans pour la course de longue distance. On suit ces cyclistes de la ligne de départ au sprint final, alors que leur carrière se joue à coups de pédales jusqu’au fil d’arrivée.

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.
