“Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling.” – Peter Cowie, International Film Guide.
Paris–Roubaix is the most famous and usually the most dramatic of the spring classics 'monument' races. Much of the latter portion is over narrow, cobbled tracks that choke with dust on dry days and become slick and muddy in rain. For the riders, it's a challenge to keep going without puncturing or crashing.
The hellish Sunday took place on April 11, 1976, when the champions of cycle racing battled for victory in the classic and gruelling annual bicycle race – Paris-Roubaix.
'You can see every bead of sweat on the cyclists and every smashed-up ankle. It really makes you never want to get on a bike again. But it is an amazing film.' - Nick Fraser, BBC commissioning editor
