Cycling in Italy at the L'Eroica (Video)

I'm not sure if it's been posted before. I searched with no specific results.

I think it was posted earlier but not in a dedicated thread.

As a pro in film, I think it's advanced-amateur level work*...but that doesn't matter. The content is great and it's beautiful.



*in terms of cycling, I am far below advanced-amateur! But I'd love a chance to shoot something like this.

I remember when that came out, but didn't watch all of it. Made for nice viewing while eating my bagel this morning. Thanks!

This is a great video, worth watching again and again.

L'Eroica is less than 2 months away, and I shall be there! I'll be riding my 1974 Legnano Gran Premio on the 200km course along with my son on a 1983 Bianchi Nuovo Racer. It should be a reat time!!! We may need and new subcategory of C&V to handle all of my posts and pics after the ride.

Ciao!

I hate it when they change websites. http://www.eroicafan.it/index.php?lang=it

So before, on just plain eroica.it, they had a section with pictures of the bikes.

Anyone have a link to that?

I can't find it.
