Summary
Four friends come to terms with life after high school. When top-notch cyclist Dave learns that the world's bicycling champions are always Italian, he attempts to turn himself into an Italian, driving his parents crazy. But everything changes after he meets the Italian racing team--an encounter that ultimately leads him and his friends to challenge the local college boys in the town's annual bike race
