“Man on the Run” by Manuela Ronchi

-

“Man on the Run” by Manuela Ronchi is the story of the last few years of Marco Pantani’s life.

The title works on two levels: after being slung out of the Giro D’Italia race on the penultimate day on a charge of suspected EPO use, whilst leading by a long way, Marco was hounded by demons – insecurity, shame, confusion, betrayal, distrust – all the way through a terrible cocaine addiction to his demise of an overdose.
