Rapha Short Film

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

I liked it, although I was kind of hoping he'd have it out with the d-bag father.

I suspect the bike belonged to his father. So they find a connection which helps rebuild the relationship. The kid become a professional and start with the EPO. The dad finds out and shares his story as a friend of Tom Simpson and the ugly outcome. The kid becomes a domestique and rides quietly into the sunset...

they lost any ability to justify a $200 jersey when they started charging $75 for a plain t-shirt

Thanks for posting . Interesting..
One would assume Two Broad Arrows is based on the life of Sean Kelly.
