This clip is taken from the 52'' sport documentary I produced and directed for ESPN Classic in 2005, on Mario Cipollini, "The Lion King" of cycling.

World-famous for his sprinting abilities, Cipollini in 2002 equalled Alfredo Binda's record wins at the Giro d'Italia. Find out how it happened in this excerpt.

The documentary contains exclusive interviews with Mario Cipollini himself and other cycling greats and specialists.

Supermario Sprint is still airing on the ESPN Classic network and has also been presented in various TV documentaries around Europe.
