PANTANI: THE ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF A CYCLIST
Special Event: Charity screening
Wednesday 16th July, 7.30pm
Rated M: Drug references
Runtime: 90 mins
In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia.
This titanic feat of physical and mental endurance has never since been matched - Pantani was a hero to millions and was seen as the saviour of cycling during a time when doping scandals threatened to destroy the sport.
Six years after this extraordinary feat and aged only 34, tragically, Pantani was dead. Discovered in a cheap Italian hotel, he died alone apparently from acute cocaine poisoning.
ABOUT SMILING FOR SMIDDY
On Saturday 30 August 2014, 50 cyclists will hit the road on a 1600 kilometre cycle over eight days to raise funds for cancer research on the ninth annual Bottlemart Smiddy Challenge.
The Challenge commemorates the life of physiotherapist, and keen triathlete, Adam Smiddy who passed away to an aggressive cancer aged only 26.
All proceeds from this night will help us raise funds to support worldclass research into melanoma and prostate cancer and complementary therapies to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
