Ok, a little off the dirt biking topic but take a look at the movie "Icarus" directed by Bryan Fogel. I caught it on Netflix.

Icarus is a gripping documentary about large scale doping by Russian athletes and the cover-ups to keep it hidden. It is anything but a dry documentary. The movie has more intrigue and drama than 10 episodes 'Berlin Station'.

It's eye opening and draw jopping how far up the political chain Russian doping exists from 1968 up to and including the 2016 Rio Games.

The fix is on. Catch it if you can.

Interesting. We all know it was (and is) going on, but I did not know there was a detailed documentary about it, complete with intrigue and drama. Thanks for the heads up -

.
Here's the ABC News Nightline segment about the movie. It's pretty informative -

The Nightline segment uses a lot of segments from the film.

Enjoy,
