Renowned frame-builder Giuseppe Mari­noni’s Best Hour Record at­tempt is set to take place on Satur­day, Aug. 19 at the Mat­tamy Na­tional Cy­cling Cen­tre in Mil­ton, Ont. with a screen­ing of Mari­noni: The Fire in the Frame at the Mil­ton Cen­tre for the Arts on Fri­day, Aug. 18 at 7:00pm.

Mari­noni’s up­com­ing at­tempt will pay trib­ute to friend and as­so­ciate Cana­dian cy­cling leg­end Jo­ce­lyn Lovell, who passed away in June of last year. The film screen­ing hosted by film­maker Tony Gi­rardin will hon­our Lovell and in­clude a raf­fle for a Mari­noni frame. Screen­ing tick­ets are avail­able on­line for $10.

Mari­noni, the le­gendary 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. In Oc­to­ber 2012, Mari­noni set the 75-79 age-group Best Hour Record at the Mon­tichiari Velo­drome in Mon­tichiari, Italy.

Tick­ets are avail­able for free to view Mari­noni’s record at­tempt on the 19th through Eventbrite, with sev­eral tour buses depart­ing from Mon­treal, Que. and Ot­tawa, Ont. to trans­port spec­ta­tors to the event for the price of $40. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.mari­non­i­movie.com.
