Man and machine engage in the ultimate head-to-head competition as filmmaker Peter Carr captures every remarkable moment of the bizarre and heated battle. When Graeme Obree built his own homebrew bike from spare washing machine parts and became a World Hour Record holder, he never expected that his position would be challenged a mere six days later, but that 's exactly what happened when 1992 Olympic Pursuit Champion Chris Boardman achieved his own World Hour record almost immediately thereafter. In this film, bicycle enthusiasts are allowed the unique opportunity to witness this intense rivalry firsthand.
