Film documenting the career of British racing cyclist Alf Engers, who, in 1978, established a national record of completing a 25-mile long circuit in under 50 minutes; a record which stood for 12 years. Packed with rare film footage of the time, extended interviews with Engers today, and contributions from his friends and rivals, this film gives us an unforgettable portrait of a great rider, and of a vanished era in the sport of time-trialling.
"I want to put the record where blokes cant get at it". This was the personal mission statement of Alf Engers, the rider known in time-trialling circles simply as "The King" and this film tells the story of how the ambition was fulfilled. For those with memories of those years, and for all those who care about the history of Cycle Sport, this film is a must.
