The High Life - 1985 (Robert Millar)

A Granada TV documentary on one of Britain's greatest cyclists. Thanks to the uploader Matteomjb. As much as seeing vintage cycling and the great champs on T.V thrills me, I get extra terrified seeing them without helmets. In the first video, Millar trains in France, doing 50 mph on local roads (with no divider) against oncoming traffic, which will sent a chill down anyone's spine. Shows not only how much cyclists of that time were out of sync with safety, but they had the confidence to risk it all for the glory of a cycling champion.




No records of Part 4 on Youtube.
