Here is a sort of preview of the movie. I think they are about to start filming. Anyone have any info? This is one of two cycling movies coming up. Haven't seen cycling in the cinema in a while now.

Where are the over-the-top CGI scenes and ubiquitous explosions?

Without them, this will be a direct to DVD production or a Hallmark Channel movie.

Yeah, and what about the sex scenes? Even those appear to be missing.

Looks like a straight to video movie. I could be wrong. A big screen flick would spur the industry.

This should be in post production by now. They started shooting in and around Salt Lake City in late July. They sent out a bunch of emails over the summer to local clubs and teams looking for extras for the race scenes.

You mean because the guy riding in a specialized jersey is riding a Cannondale?

Yeah especially near the end of that trailer. Apparently, "they rode their bikes" (!). Really, who says that?

Curious about that scene where the guy falls over in the bar.

I heard Kevin Costner's 'American Flyers' mustache is making a cameo appearance. So there's that.

Still preferable to " We biked...". As for the movie, it'll be good enough to put it in my instant play queue.

Wow, at the beginning I thought it was going to be the Chad Gerlach story (which would be more interesting anyway).

Looks pretty dull. The american domestic scene? They should do a movie that shows the Belgian Kermis scene, ala Joe Parkins "Dog in a Hat". Yeah, dudes getting all hopped up on pills and injections and then slugging it out for the slim chance to make it to the big time. There's a movie for ya.

I checked IMDB and her name isn't in the cast listing.
