This is the introduction and title sequence to Supermario Sprint, a 52-min sport documentary I directed and produced for ESPN Classic, in 2005.

It's a biographical piece on cyclist Mario Cipollini and his 19-year illustrious professional career, which saw him equal Alfredo Binda's record wins at the Giro d'Italia and win the World Cup in 2002.

Mario, despite having only recently retired, is a superstar, the 'Lion King' of cycling. It was a great privilege to have been able to tell his life story and share if only for a couple of days the passion for this sport.
