    What was the name of the movie that had a kid in it as he grew up, he dreamed of one day being a professional rider... He may have been italian or something, he spoke with an accent... I think the movie was filmed in the early to mid 80's... Anyone?

    Let me know
    Thanks

    You're probably thinking of "Breaking Away". Wonderful movie. Came out in 1979. Local cyclist in a small town (townies aka "cutters"), lives, eats, and breathes cycling and everything else Italian, comes of age in a race against college kids. Based on Dave Blaze, and his experiences at Indiana University and the Little 500.
