Every weekend I will try and find a few interesting cycling videos from before the year 2000.The years before Armstrong corporatised sport.
I have heard of slamming the stem, but during the race, wow!!! How would you like to hear the Giro route was coming past your shop in those days? I am pretty sure the same happened in the Tour de France as well.
I was very surprised when I was hunting YouTube for old footage to see the full documnetary movie “A Sunday in Hell” is available online. The film is a chronology of the 1976 Paris–Roubaix bicycle race from the perspective of participants, organizers and spectators. It may be only low resolution on Youtube, but it is a great watch.
Have a great weekend.
