The Story of Extreme Cyclist Giuliano Calore

The story of Giuliano Calore and of his attempt to enter the history of extreme cycling

Giuliano Calore was born in Padova (Italy) in 1938. During his life he has contributed to writing the history of extreme cycling. Some of his extraordinary exploits are today in the Guinness World Records, and led him to receive the coveted honor of “King of the records”.

Giuliano Calore is now 77 years old and he is determined to realize his last record.

He wants to use the suggestive location of the Stelvio Pass, the set of some of his previous astounding proofs of balance, tenacity, and inexhaustible power, and also the set of some of the most famous pages in the history of cycling.

This is the most impressive challenge he took up so far: descending mount Stelvio at night, 48 hairpin turns by bike with no handlebars, no brakes, only illuminated by a flashlight and the moonlight.

The documentary tells the incredible story of this bizarre character, somewhere in between an old-fashioned gentleman and a pub bettor, with a boundless passion for cycling, and for a free, unconventional lifestyle.
