    I absolutely love this movie (but then again CSC is my favorite team :rolleyes: ) Does anybody have other suggestions of good cycling movies? (Preferably on DVD)

    Thanks for the recommendations, fauxpas. I'll check them out. I just ordered 4 DVD's today.
    • A documentary of Bjarne Riis and Basso (not "Overcoming" - this one will be released in 2 weeks in the UK)
    • The Quest (About the 2003 Giro d'Italia)
    • Eddy Merckx - Legends Of The Tour De France
    • Lance Armstrong - 7 In A Row
    So that will tie me over until the Tour starts! :D

    Definitely "Hell on Wheels" ... wonderful documentary of the 2003 T-Mobile team during the Tour. Every aspect brilliant. I enjoyed it more than the CSC doc, which left me a bit unsettled, and perhaps less a fan of CSC.

    Was looking at my local JB Hi-Fi and found Hell On Wheels in a bargain bin for $9.98 AUD [$8.00US]...

    I enjoyed it much more than Overcoming... The spectators really made me laugh and also the bit when they all pulled over to take a piss... syncronised pee pee... :eek:
