New arrivals for the week of March 4, 2008

Hello Everyone,

In preparation for Spring (it's still coming, isn't it?) I picked up a handful of great cycling documentaries. "Free Wheels: 55 Year History of the Little 500" is just that -- a play-by-play account of all the goings on both on the track and behind the scenes at Bloomington, Indiana's Little 500 bicycle race. It even features some interview footage with Champaign's own Little 500 racer, Chris Gutowski. "Six-Day Bicycle Race: America's Jazz Sport" tells the amazing story of these bicycling events in the United States during the period from 1910 through the 1930s. Six-day races (6 days, 24 hours a day, 2 riders per team, each riding 12 hours per day) were the biggest sporting event of the time drawing both celebrities and gangsters to the stands. "Hammer and Cycle" is a short documentary about Yale's annual cross country trek (New Haven to Portland) raising money for Habitat for Humanity (and stopping along the way to help build houses) -- how cool is that? And, Robbie Ventura (former US Postal rider) has put out two training tapes, "Race Day" and "Power". Both are supposed to fun to watch even if you can't keep up with him on your bike. I know I can't. So, there you have it -- a great week to be a cycling fan!

Have a great day...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
