    Bike Racing fans--a plug for 'All for One' documentary...

    On Amazon streaming--a documentary about the Orica-GreenEdge/Orica-Scott/Michelton-Scott cycling team--first Aussie pro team. Not the usual--lots of background, some great racing shots, but mainly about the racers on and off the bike:

    Awesome! We’ll have to watch that soon!

    On a related note there is a 6-episode series, also on Amazon and featuring the same team, called “Eat.Race.Win” that we really enjoyed. It follows the chef for the Mitchelton Scott team during the TDF as she struggles to keep them well fed and in peak condition. Lots of racing footage and insider stuff on that show too.

    Ah...my wife and I actually liked it. But we're foodies and the show really was about the food and not so much about the cyclists and racing. It was kind of a tour of frenzied gourmet cooking in the backdrop of the TDF with the Mitchelton Scott team. I am looking forward to watching "All for One" though....that's all about the racing.

    The dude that crashed so hard he broke his carbon shoe sole was a "damn son" moment.

    Just finished watching and it fits the bill of what we've come to expect... Humor. Tragedy. Resolution.

    I remember watching the Tour live when the Green Edge bus wedgied itself.

    My wife and I just watched it and really enjoyed it. The story of Esteban Chavez is pretty amazing.

    OK, started watching "Eat Race Win" and am now FREAKED OUT!!!!

    Is it a cooking show? Is it a cycling show?? I'm scared that I don't know and I like it!!!!!



    The Logistics for a Grand Race like le Tour must run on momentum!!!! If you tried to micromanage any aspect, I'm guessing by stage 9, you'd go to bed with pen & paper and a hand gun.

    Just finished watching "All for One" Great story and outstanding comeback for Esteban Chavez is pretty amazing.
