“The Greatest Cyclist of All Time” is a presentation by Cyrille Vincent who is the director and producer of WHIRLWIND, the upcoming documentary exploring the life and time of legendary American world champion cyclist, Marshall Major Taylor.
In this presentation, Cyrille argues that Major Taylor is perhaps the greatest cyclist of all time. Through a combination of rare archives and behind the scene photos of the film in the making, Cyrille introduces the audience to the often overlooked aspects of Major Taylor's life.
