August 08, 2017 (Milton, ON) – Excitement is building as legendary frame-builder Giuseppe Marinoni’s Best Hour Record attempt is around the corner on Saturday, Aug. 19 at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, Ont. with a screening and tribute of Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame at the Milton Centre for the Arts, 1010 Main St. E, on Friday, Aug. 18 at 7:00pm.
The film screening and record attempt pay tribute to Marinoni’s friend and associate, Jocelyn Lovell, a Canadian cycling legend who passed away in June of last year. The screening will be hosted by filmmaker Tony Girardin and include a raffle for a Marinoni frame – tickets are available online for $10 via link below.
In October 2012, Marinoni set the 75-79 age-group Best Hour Record at the Montichiari Velodrome in Montichiari, Italy. The renowned frame-builder who started Quebec-based Marinoni Bicycles, will attempt to set a new distance in the 80-84 UCI Masters Best Hour Record category. The world record to beat is an impressive 38.657 km held by Paul Martinez of France.
