In the movie "Breaking Away" the main character is Dave Stoller played by Dennis Christopher (at right). Dave's body double in race scenes was Garry Rybar who had ridden in the actual Little 500 races with the Delta Chi team from 1974 thru 1978 (winning in 1974, 1976 and 1977).

Gary Rybar later had a sex change operation and changed his name to Karen Rybar (aka Holly Violins and Nancy Wilson).
