An inspiring, funny and uplifting drama touring Wales: 23 April - 23 May 2015
Check out the Gladiator Trailer
Written & Directed by Laurence Allan
Designed by Anna-Marie Hainsworth
In 1895, before the Tour De France and before the Modern Olympics, Wales and Aberdare could claim its first cycling world champion when Arthur Linton won the Bordeaux to Paris bike race, 350 miles – the blue riband event of the cycling world.
Within weeks, he and his controversial trainer, Choppy Warburton were embroiled in the sport’s first drugs scandal and within a year Arthur at the age of twenty-four was dead. He was one of the “Terrible Three’, a trio of world class cyclists from the Cynon Valley who took on the world’s best and left behind scandal, myth and memories of the legendary first racing bike – The Gladiator.
