I just saw a rough cut of a new cycling documentary (my buddy is got a hold of it through a friend). Its called, "The Hard Road" and I can't wait to see the final cut! A buddy got a hold of it before it comes out to the public which he said will be next month. Jamie Paolinetti from Schroeder Iron did the film.

The film is a kind of docu-feature following the NetZero team through the 2001 season. Its got all kinds of interviews and race footage and some really cool music. This was the year when Mike Tillman, Graeme Miller and Hilton CLarke were on that squad. Oh, and the guy who does the BMW commercials does the narration.

There's a movie poster at, wwwthehardroad.com , but I don't know much else.

move over, American Flyers, this will be the new cult film.
Isn't there another forum for adverts?cxer

If it was a movie with THIS year's Shroeder Iron team it would be worth watching. Chann McRae could probably fill a movie each with stories of europe, world championships, the Giro, the Tour, classics and all the top american races not to mention competing in Ironman.

American Idol and Joe Millionaire come on and anyone with a video camera thinks they are a movie star.
Not what Jamie is after...noveread

Jamie isn't after big-time euro cycling. He's after the small domestic scene. Personally I can't wait to see it. Besides, I find the stories of the little guy trying to live his dream rather than the atypical stories of the superstar (Road to Paris, though it's enjoyable too).

Its about these guys (6 are rookies) learning what it takes to be in this sport at the highest level THIS country offers. Its a emotional movie, not just a lot of race footage put to music. YOu feel for these guys.

As for star power, this was Hilton Clarke's rookie season and you get to watch him learn from Graeme Miller, the father figure.
