Sacrilegious question: roadie equivalent of roam, seasons etc etc
Chasing Legends is quite good, it is sometimes on YouTube in full. Also on YouTube is The Road To Paris which follows Lance and the US postal team in the run up to the 2001 tour I think.
The Sky British Cycling series was good, can’t remember what it was called, again some episodes are on YouTube periodically!
Not sure of any others, would be interested myself in the suggestions.Posted 4 years agosteezysixMember
The web series about the Transcontinental Race is shaping up to be really good – only about 10 minutes each but hopefully there’ll be a full length film released at some point. Parts one and two:

I just don’t think road has various genres?
Films or riding?
Films, perhaps not – but riding, even bog standard road riding, there are various games that roadies play – for sure – even without looking at the competitive side of things (TT, road Race etc.) there are those that like to climb, those that don’t, short and fast, long and slow, going on big loops in a group, getting somewhere on your own – having adventures etc. – how that then translates to film is going to be different, and I’d suggest is more down to less exploration of the form than the differences not being there. I’m sure there is a market for some short film about people riding road bikes on some kind of historic route in vintage gear…or some epic jaunt (e.g. Lejog) in the same way there is for MTB.Posted 4 years agozangolinMember
