"Arguably the best film ever made about professional cycling" - Peter Cowie, International Film Guide
In honour of the most famous and the most dramatic of the spring classic "monument" races - Paris-Roubaix, we're bringing this outstanding cycling documentary to the BIG screen.

This film has stood the testament of time in terms of documentary making, cycling prowess and cutting edge cinematography.

Old and gold!!!

The hellish Sunday took place on April 11, 1976 when the champions of cycle-racing battled for victory in the classic and gruelling annual bicycle race – Paris-Roubaix.

A Sunday in Hell is a Danish documentary film that captures not just the events of the 1976 edition but the atmosphere of a professional race.

Paris–Roubaix is the most famous and usually the most dramatic of the spring classics. Much of the latter portion is over narrow, cobbled tracks that choke with dust on dry days and become slick and muddy in rain. For the riders it's a challenge to keep going without puncturing or crashing.

"You can see every bead of sweat on the cyclists and every smashed-up ankle. It really makes you never want to get on a bike again. But it is an amazing film." - Nick Fraser, BBC commissioning editor

At the screening, we will have Karl Woolcott from Ride Holidays talking about their Cycling Tour to the Spring Classics’ next year, several magazines up for grabs from NZ Cycling Journal as well as Jonathan Dodd drawing a Gift Voucher for a Soigneur Merino Wool Retro Cycling Jersey.

Tickets available on-line and on the night at the venue (subject to availability).

Denmark, 1976, 111 mins, Exempt - Danish with English sub-titles.

So… listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, go on… grab your bike and come along for the ride!

Cheers,
Brett
