The French Samurai

French track cyclist Francois Pervis was in the news last weekend when he won the gold medal for the men's kilometer time trial in the Track Cycling World Championships in Paris.

We thought you might enjoy this recent Eurosport documentary about Pervis. He spends a few months each year racing the Keirin in Japan. The sport is a bit different there, than elsewhere in the world. For example, the public loves to bet on the races!

"Yes, I'm in good shape, my gear ratio is such and such...and I'm here to win."

Love his attitude.
