“I knew it had to end at some point, but
it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done,”
– Jack Swart

Jack Swart shaped racing domestically for over a decade, while
younger brother Stephen raced at the highest level on the roads
of America and Europe during cycling’s most controversial era.
From digging house foundations to smashing the New Zealand
hour record, milking in Morrinsville to competing in the Tour de
France, this is an inspiring story about two legendary Kiwi cyclists.

“I could have said nothing…
but that wouldn’t have helped the sport.”
– Stephen Swart
