The Best Cycling Films

Films are beloved pieces of art that we all watch and enjoy with such and incredible array of genres and titles to chose from. Something that has been hard to do over the years is to properly create fictional sports films, some have done it like Goal! which is about a Mexican footballer or Vertical Limit which was one of the first climbing tragedy films created at the turn of the century.

The relatively recent boost in cycling popularity hasn’t gone unnoticed and now the film studios are wanting to cash in. If you follow us on twitter, a while back we shared a trailer for an action packed cycling film from Hong-Kong which looks set to change the way we look at cycling films. Here is the trailer for the high octane film, directed by Dante Lam.
