Film Friday: Roubaix Cobbles

In a couple of days time the peloton will line up at the start of one of the finest road racing spectacles of the season. Famed for its drama, its danger and of course it's crashes (Spectators will be praying for rain, the evil bunch that we are!). So just in case you were not already in the mood, here's a little Paris-Roubaix 2012 promo vid alongside a clip from the 'Sunday In Hell' docufilm. That should do the trick. Enjoy.


  1. I am enjoying your blog. It's been a great discovery. I am no racing aficionado but I take a kind of dilettante's interest and I suspect i will learn a fair bit here, and enjoy the reading - and viewing, as with this post. I'd heard of the film but never saw it. These two teasers were great. Thanks


    1. Hoopdriver: Thanks for the comment, I hope you will learn too, ive enjoyed cycling so much more since discovering the ins and outs, the history and energy of pro-cycling and the races. I'm also learning new things by the bucket load writing this blog everyday, I am by no means an expert - in fact far from it! I'm just glad that you are enjoying reading it as much as I am writing it!
