    Yup, I saw that after I posted, and edited my original post to include both. I'm always happy to hear a bit of Mr. Ligget!

    Oh I guess I hadn't refreshed before replying.

    Both trailers are worth viewing, some different shots and cool aspects of both. That should be an exciting DVD ...

    I'm using quicktime,
    it says mp4, so maybe you need to download a new codec? I guess my codec came with the divx codec that I installed a while ago

    Thanks for the links. This looks pretty good.

    Anyone know if this will have to be ordered from a cycling website or is it possible it will show up in best buy type places?

    djbowen,
    I had the same problem.
    even though I have a 2 week old comput5er, I downloaded Wuicktime again from the Saeco site below the movie links.
    Be sure and set your MIME setup to play MP4.
    It worked immediately afterwords.
    Great clip!

    Good Luck!

    From the dailypeloton.com
    The Quest

    The 2003 Giro documentary film The Quest, which was scheduled for a special screening on 18 January in the Los Angeles area, has been postponed indefinitely due to a family emergency. We wish The Quest crew the best, and we will keep you informed of upcoming screening and sales information.

    I'm still waiting!

    "The Quest" Update
    "The Quest," the behind-the-scenes documentary Gilberto Simoni's win at the 2003 Giro d'Italia, is now scheduled for a May release to coincide with the 2004 Giro. The film's debut, originally slated for last December, has been delayed to allow the filmmakers time to incorporate additional footage.

    Cool....I've emailed the producers several times and never received a reply. I am guessing it will be available through VeloNews and World Cycling?
