Sunday Movie: Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic - Behind The Scenes
Now, we are all well aware that there happens to be a little race happening right now in Italy (apparently) but here's something even littler. This beautifully shot video gives an insight into the domestic peloton following riders and director sportifs through this years Ruland-Melton Cicle Classic, which just happens to be my 'major' local race. I wrote a report on it last year (It was the worst day of weather that year, only 22 riders finished the race and there was me and about a dozen others braving it at the finish) but couldn't attend this year which meant of course that it was glorious sunshine! This one day race with it's 11 off-road sections is by far the toughest UCI 1.2 race going and this little video produced by Mat Pennell & Phil Sheehan is a real gem. Enjoy.
