road to roubaix

just watched the dvd, a powerful, beautiful film that really gets under the skin of the race and everything in encompasses.

watching it stirred something deep inside. Not sure exactly what but I suddenly have the itch to start training again, after a few weeks of post cross season blues/run down -ness/bicycle fatigue.

anyone fancy a roadtrip in April?

I'll be riding near Roubaix on Saturday! Stag do group ride, so it's more about the experience of cobbles than any sort of training.

Spectating at the World Cup race on Sunday - will report back on my return.

Where can I get this DVD? Is it region 2 cos the site says its NTSC
(Never The Same Colours). I wannit, wannit,wannit. (Got to get Cros Worlds out the way first. Now you're really jealous I can tell. Want to put in your fanclub scarf orders?!!)
I'm thinking Kevin Pauwels right now but that could change.

count me in for the goatee of filth.

Uncle G - I bought it straight offa the masterlink website store, it's a double sided affair, PAL and NTSC.

If anyone wants to borrow it, let me know.

Not remotely envious of you going to the worlds..nup, not in the slightest...

My money's on Boom, home course, reigning champ, think he'll be able to out-kick Alberts (though his comeback has been spectacular). Plus Boom has a better mullet. Dangerous discounting the 'cannibal' though...
