New Black Films’ highly anticipated new feature documentary PANTANI: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist has been completed and is to be released in UK cinemas late April.
February 14th takes on a very different meaning for fans of pro cycling with this year marking ten years since Marco Pantani’s tragic death.

14 February 2004. Marco Pantani dies alone in Rimini. In a motel, after three days spent in a small room without seeing anybody. Pantani was still a Pro rider. During the previous year, during the Giro, he was able to show great moments and I remember, all over the winter, many people wondering about Il Pirata’s plans for the 2004. Then it all ended.
