The latest instalment of the season-long documentary following the Cervelo Test Team's first season is now available to watch or download.
Episode seven of the series, shot in high definition video, is the second to cover the team's participation in this year's Giro and features candid footage shot before, during and after key stages, including the individual mountain time trial, in which the riders and team managers and the support staff talk about their performance. You can watch this latest episode and all the others in the series at www.bartape.net
Filmmakers Joe Finkleman and Booker Sim have been given access all areas passes for CTT's first season and promise to show you what race footage fails to capture: everything “beyond the peloton”. Earlier episodes cover Paris Roubaix, Milan San Remo, the Tour of California and Cervelo's pre-season preparations with interviews with all the main players including Carlos Sastre and Thor Hushovd. Definitely worth a look.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
