Good stuff. Just watched it. I didnt realize Grischa Niermann became a director with them but ive been out of the loop for a while. He was a nice guy back in the day so Im happy for him.

Bora and Quickstep uploaded highlight videos from the Giro. Good stuff.
There was a scene in the Bora one where someone was applying some sort of cream to a TT saddle. Any ideas what that is about?

"All for One" is another I'd add to the list. About the start of the Orica-Scott team beginnings.

I almost watched All for One last week but skipped it for something else. Guess I will get back to it now.

You were right about this one. Thought it was gonna be propaganda but it was legit good. Thanks for pointing it out. :thumbup:

Awesome watch. Honestly, every team needs to do videos like this. If you want to grow the fanbase, content like this is how you do it, for me at least. And yea it's probably just the editing, but TJV just really come off as real people. They're emotional but humble, and you just feel like they're good human beings. Gutted to see the tour shaken up from the start. I became a huge Roglic fan after the first Tour meltdown just seeing how he responded and how the team responded. It's hard not to root for these guys. Plus I love seeing Sepp win to get some Americans back up at the top.

Youre bringing back some memories now! I remember getting my own VHS copy and feeling like a better cyclist just for owning it. 8)

Can't believe it took this long to come up as it's the first movie I thought of. Romantic yet gritty, and always compelling. Someone posted a decent quality version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxBTVU9JDrA

Thank you. It immediately popped into my head as my favorite but I could not remember the name of it. Now I'm watching it again.
