This clip taken from the 52'' sport documentary I directed and produced for ESPN Classic in 2005, explains how Mario Cipollini gained the nickname 'The Lion King' of cycling.
Cipollini is an Italian cyclist who is world famous for his sprinting ability. If you are a cycling fan, you will enjoy this.
The documentary contains exclusive interviews with the champ, together with other Italian greats of the pedal like Felice Gimondi, Franco Ballerini, Alessandro Petacchi, Luca Scinto and Mario Scirea.
