RYOKOU CHAPTER 5: OVERCOME (Shane Perkins documentary)

OVERCOME. Both awe inspiring and highly intense, this is Keirin racing & Shane Perkins in full flight.

This Chapter ends our story.
This final installment takes us into the anatomy of a Keirin race. Not just what happens out on the velodrome, but everything that happens to get there. Did you know that all the athletes live together in the velodrome for 4 days? Did you know that they wear armour? Did you know that the bell toll signifies the final lap?

Shane gives us an insight into his race preparation. The way he 'imposes' himself on his nemeses is an art in itself, and all part of the bike race. Shane used to say 'Just ride the bike and win'...but this episode shows it's far, far more than that.

Shane's family and friends also remark on his life journey so far, as a man and as an elite athlete. Get the tissues ready.
