The Last Kilometer

Italian cycling film The Last Kilometer – in the original, L’Ultimo Chilometro – is now available to buy on DVD, or to watch online in HD on a pay per view basis.

The film, which we reviewed last year lasts 52 minutes 30 seconds, focuses on two riders at opposite ends of their careers – the controversial Davide Rebellin, who had to return his Olympic silver medal from Beijing after failing a doping control, and Ignazio Moser, son if Italian legend, Francesco.

The other main protagonists of the film are Italian journalist Gianni Mura, who has covered races including the Tour de France for nearly five decades, and the unmistakeable Didi Senft, better known as Didi the Devil.

Here’s the trailer – keep watching right to the end for a touching moment as Moser glances at the plaque in the Roubaix showers that bears his father’s name; will the 20-year-old, racing this year with the BMC Development Team, get his own one day?

The DVD can be ordered here – the PAL version for Europe costs €15.90 and there is a discount available for being two copies, or you can add a booklet (in Italian) to your order. NSTC versions for other markets are also available, with full details available on the same page.

The pay per view version in HD can be found here - it costs €8.99, which allows you to access it five times as a stream (rather than a download) within 30 days of purchase.

You can find out more information on the film on its website.
