A week of wheels, colours and speed at the Road Cycling World Championships in Mendrisio, narrated by women who reveal with their perception an unexposed side of profound emotions, usually hidden by competitive performance. Days when everything lights-up, people become nicer, smiling, and cram together to live this big celebration. Bicycling is People’s sport. And the public knows the champion races alone against time and itself. Not just for the victory. He fights to conquer the respect of the fans, the respect of the road.
