The Flying Scotsman *

This film, about a bloke from my home town, is out this week. If you like inspirational sporting heroes, then I'm sure you'll like his story. I like this interview and particularly like the quote from Moser, whose world record Obree broke, towards the end of the piece, which also appears in Obree's book. In fact, this quote put a lump in my throat when I read it.

Btw, he didn't build his bike from parts of an old washing machine, he simply used one washer from a washing machine. Nevertheless, it's still quite a story.

* Spear of Destiny
