Campeones de Amarillo: El Equipo ciclista KAS (by eitbcom)

Watch on rollersinstinct.tumblr.com

Jørgen Leth's Stars and Watercarriers covering the 1973 Giro d'Italia. Another classic cycling film for those who enjoyed A Sunday in Hell and The Greatest Show on Earth.

…TO BE QUICKER THAN THE REST, AND PARTICULARLY THAN THE OTHER STARS, INVOLVES A LOT OF PAIN.

“BEING A MOUNTAIN SPECIALIST IS VERY HARD. NOT THAT I’D RATHER BE ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE I DON’T THINK YOU CAN BECOME… A BETTER HUMAN BEING WITHOUT EFFORT. YOU CAN BEAT THE PROBLEMS OF LIFE MUCH MORE EASILY IF YOU’VE MET HARDSHIP.

IT SOMETIMES LOOKS AS IF THE FIRST RIDER TO THE TOP HAS DONE IT FAIRLY EASILY; YOU TEND TO FEEL MORE SORRY FOR THE MEN WHO’VE KNOCKED THEMSELVES OUT TO MAKE THE CLIMB AT ALL; BUT BELIEVE ME TO BE QUICKER THAN THE REST, AND PARTICULARLY THAN THE OTHER STARS, INVOLVES A LOT OF PAIN.”
