An amateur racer turned global broadcaster, Phil Liggett has covered forty-eight Tours de France and fifteen Olympic Games, calling every triumph, tragedy and scandal with his inimitable wit and ‘Liggetism’ style of poetry.

Created by the filmmakers behind MAMIL (Middle Aged Men In Lycra), the 110-minute feature documentary tracks Phil Liggett’s life story and offers an insight into his dedication to his much-loved sport of cycling and passion for wildlife conservation.

“Apart from the fame and adulation of his many followers, this is a humble, dedicated man, passionate about so many issues. He is a great raconteur, with a dry wit. Phil gives of his time unstintingly and his interests range far more widely than the cycling enthusiast might know.”

Phil Liggett MBE is 77 and says he has witnessed every heroic triumph and harrowing tragedy over his 53-year career.

The documentary was filmed over the last 18 months across three continents synonymous with Phil’s life, starting at his homes in South Africa and the UK, over to the Tour de France and finishing in Australia with filming in Melbourne and Adelaide.
