Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Best one ever produced

It's a documentary on the use of neon in jersey design and styrofoam in helmet design.

The Cervelo website has a pretty good series about the Test Teams first season of racing.

They are all archived on https://www.bartape.net/

Check these two sites out. One of the sites is in Italian, but you could fumble your way through the site and search for downloads. The other is a cycling specific torrent site.

Nobody mentioned A Sunday in Hell? Pre 80's of course, but it's the best one ever.

The Cervelo videos are generally good, and I'm glad they made them. But after the third video, I start thinking the everything is the same that there's no point watchng any more. They really need to change the music. The first couple of videos kids sets the tone, but then, well it just gets boring.
