Back To Now
I went back to Now Bikes and rode the trainer for 1 1/2 hours and 24 miles while watching the 1976 Joergen Leth film; "A Sunday In Hell". The film covers the 1976 Paris-Roubaix bike race on the cobbles of the north of France. The main players were the greats of the day including Eddy Merckx, Roger DeVlaeminck (who got third), Marc DeMayer (who won that day), Freddy Martins, Walter Goodefroot, Jan Raas, Hennie Kuiper and a very young Francesco Moser (who placed second).
