Hell On Wheels.




"For some it's a bicycle race, for others it's Hell on wheels!"

This is the German trailer for the great film, 'Höllentour: Tour for Heroes.' A mind riveting adventure into the heart of the 2003 Tour de France. If you haven't seen it do so the trailer is just a teaser for what awaits. Full respect goes to the guys on two wheels as the camera lens follows Erik Zabel, Rolf Aldag, Andreas Kloden & Alexandre Vinokourov. The cinematography is stunning as you are catapulted into the fantastic world of pro cycling within the beauty of France. Historical footage is here to provide that important gateway to the past Tours. Even back then it was hell.

So sit back pour yourself a nice glass of Bordeaux and enjoy...

Be forewarned you will get addicted and like me watch it many, many times!

It has been my favourite for many many years and caused a female cyclist in Brisbane the onset of serious Zabel obsession. :-) A must see for sure.

The man is an icon. Colnago has a Master X Light Zabel frame in vintage blue!

Zabel is definitely the guy who makes this movie go. When you watch a stage race from afar you don't really get a sense of what it's like to be a sprinter in such an event. Zabel is the living example of how no matter how bad it was the day before (crash, bad pack position, cut-off, whatever), if it's a sprinter's stage you've got one job for the day; get right back in there and let the elbows fly.
