Danish documentary film maker Jorgen Leth is having a retrospective at DA Films. They are streaming for free, until November 25th, "A sunday in Hell" about the Paris-Roubaix race. Great opportunity to watch a superb documentary combined with classic bike racing.

It's a good film. (I own it, along with Stars and Watercarriers.)

Even if all you watch is the first 5 minutes, it's worth it.

This is where the quote in my sig comes from! Rolf Aldag talking about the prologue; same thing I always think of when I am about to do a 10 mile time trial! Its what I love about cycling, we all suffer, me and the pros.

Should also watch Mark Cavendish: Human Missile, the whole thing is on youtube and its got some really cool footage and breakdowns of sprints. Another good one is the story of Marco Pantani and the tour de france, I can find a link if anyone is interested.

edit- Whoops read that wrong, thought it was Hell on Wheels, though now I have seen a sunday in hell as well, great film! Thank you! :beerchug:
