Undoubtedly going straight to the top of many a cyclist's Christmas list, The Flying Scotsman - the dramatised film of Graeme Obree's life - has been released on DVD.
The Flying Scotsman features Trainspotting star Jonny Lee Miller as Obree, and charts the his life through his childhood, on to his successful 1993 World Hour record attempt on a home-made bike and his subsequent battle with mental illness.
The story remains faithful to Obree's own uncompromising book of the same title, and is without doubt one of the best and most moving cycling films ever produced.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
