This is a badass documentary about 'crit' racing.

You can tell Steve Cullen is American, because his personality is exactly like mine.

If some of your morning speeches were more like his, maybe people WOULD stop at the corner of Cedar Hill & Caddy Bay!

Or quit the frikkin Club! This vid embodies so much of the ridiculous, testosterone-drenched, man-culture that makes organized road cycling such a turn-off to so many. You’re not curing cancer, Mr. Cullen. You’re not becoming a world-class mathematician. You’re pedaling a bicycle!

Cocaine—it’s a hell of a drug. :shock:

If you want to watch a good short on a character-testing, amateur physical competition that hits many of the same markers about the human need for risk-taking and adventure, but uses humour as a sharp contrast in self-awareness—and not a shred of of the nausea-inducing narcissism offered by Mr. Butcherbox—I commend this promo for the Race to Alaska (courtesy Alan, by way of Chris W.):

My thoughts exactly Rolf, right down to the cocaine part. Couldn't get through it.

Appreciate Martin's humour though.

Total bullshit. Toxic masculinity, everything about making a beautiful, elegant, cooperative sport into a fratboy initiation.

New members, racing is not like this, and the best riders are not like this. This is however how we got to Armstrong and Hesjedal cheating. Asshole thuggery.

(Sorry, did i say that out loud?)

To get a much more realistic portrayal of road racing, (and get rid of that unclean, just-watched-MMA feeling), watch All for One. Those are bike racers.
