A Sunday In Hell


Had a good ride this morning? Now time to check out the classic 1976 documentary about Paris-Roubaix with Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Freddy Maertens and Roger De Vlaeminck. This is probably the best movie ever made about pro cycling so hit play and enjoy.
51.840 kilometers!

Autographed photo of Francesco Moser adopting Graeme Obree's riding style for an Hour Record attempt in 1994.

At this point, Chris Boardman was the Hour Record holder with 52.270 km.  Moser, who previously held the Hour Record for about 9 years and was the first Hour rider to break 50 km, did not set a new record — though he did beat Graeme Obree’s previous record of 51.596 km set in 1993.

A few months after this photo was taken, Obree reclaimed the Hour Record — riding 52.713 km.  His riding position was banned by the UCI a couple weeks later.

A great find from Bici Crono via HM7’s Tumblr.

He can do it with only one leg, even in the next week… Cancellara only needs to get on the track.

— Francesco Moser, referring to Fabien Cancellara and the Hour Record.
