Nice looking German doco film "Brevet" on the 2015 Paris-Brest-Paris.

I shared this elsewhere the other day, but I see they've just released a longer ~3minute preview - which typically tantalises even more. Thought I'd pass on here as well. I can't seem to embedd the video. So here's the direct link to the official page.

Do the ride. I have a feeling the movie will be more enjoyable but the ride would be more satisfying.

Capabilities and ambitions. Sometimes I can get confused [emoji12]

Just seeing this longer preview (the first one was pretty brief, with less dialogue) got me fired up. My personal best is (still) only a couple of 400km a couple of years ago; but to see the sort of sentiments 'why we do it' & 'what gets you through' etc expressed in a nice glossy format like this that I've had more casually with ride mates is fantastic.

I was keen to to my bit for the viral marketing of this film. I hope it serves to some degree as a bit of marketing to those otherwise uninitiated or oblivious to the sport.

As Casey Stoner famously said to Valentino Rossi "Your ambition outweighed your talent". Not suggesting it in your case :wink: , but your comment above took me back to that confrontation!

Rightly questioning talent!!!

I do remember that. It was classic stoner.
