Off to the movies!

And what a movie! Starts at Cinema Nova next week. Only 52 or so sleeps until Le Tour 05, with 4 live stages being shown on SBS. w00t!

For some, it's just a bike race....
For others, it's Hell on Wheels

Nothing is more rigorous and torturous than one of the world's most famous races, Le Tour de France. Covering over 3,500 kilometres of slopes, plains and mountains, the century-old sport is attended by over two billion on TV worldwide. Hell on Wheels presents to us a history of the tour, including the gigantic organisation needed each year to hold the event. But the focus is on the men - their pain, their fears and their victories and losses, all told with unflinching clarity. The trials and tribulations of Erik Zabel and Rolf Aldag from Germany are, in fact, just as fascinating a tale as the best fictional dramas.
