The Flying Scotsman

The true story of amateur Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree, played by Jonny Lee Miller, who after seeing his old riding partner take gold at the Barcelona Olympics decides it's time to take hold of his own cycling aspirations. At the age of 27, with no funding, no sponsor and a lack of design experience, Obree decides to build his own bike and become the fastest rider in the history of the sport. In the vein of 'The World's Fastest Indian', only on a bicycle, this bio-pic also stars Billy Boyd, Laura Fraser and Brian Cox as a pep-talking priest.
