Sir Willie the long-haired wiener dog is a very good — and speedy — boy.
What does it take to clinch a fastest known time (FKT) record in cycling today? Either be an athlete that trains rigorously or, in Sir Willie’s case, be a dog.
This short film from Pearl Izumi follows Willie and his teammate, Pro Tour racer Alexey Vermeulen, as they pedal through cycling’s species barrier. Through the film, we see Willie’s wiener-dog-adapted gear and learn about his unique approach to training.
But on a deeper level, the film centers on how Willie’s journey to becoming the world’s FKD (fastest known dog) has affected him. (Spoiler alert: He’s still the best boy he’s always been.)
Whether you’re seeking a little inspiration or a smile, Sir Willie’s dachsund-mentary is the answer. Take a look and follow @sirwilliethewiener for daily doses.
