• Short Summary

    Cyclists take part in a cross country race in Italy.

  • Description

    Italy.

    Various shots of men setting off on a cross-country cycling race from an Italian city. The men cycle through the city streets before reaching the tougher countryside parts of the route, where they have to carry their bicycles up rocky hills. Large crowds watch the cyclists finishing the race. The winner (I think) is seen wearing a strange hat and holding a bunch of flowers as he sits on the shoulders of two men.
