Angel Nieto makes the big screen

On the eve of the Gran Premio betandwin.com de la Comunitat Valenciana, MotoGP legend Angel Nieto unveiled a documentary film about his career - "Angel Nieto: 12+1, the man who rode after his dream". The documentary retraces Nieto's path from his childhood in post-civil war Spain to his consecration as one of the most famous sportsmen Spain has ever produced.

"It was the first time I had people with cameras in my house," Nieto explained at the movie premiere, held at the track on Thursday night. "It's nice that other people get to see what I feel about motorcycling. Why did I want to do this? Because I have met plenty of people who were inspired by my story, my life. Some things didn't work out, others were very important; I made many friends and travelled all around the world, but the main thing is that I have always remained the same. I hope people will enjoy this documentary as much as I did."

Many well-known figures from the world of motorcycle racing appear in the film including former riders Álex Crivillé, Carlos Lavado, Marco Luchinelli, Jorge Martínez Aspar, Carlos Cardús and Sito Pons.
