Back to the Old School

This series of clips was produced 20 years ago but many of these are still available.

There’s some classic early 70’s clips including ‘A Sunday in Hell’ my all time favourite documentary about Paris Roubaix. The final clip shows Eddy Merckx during his world hour record attempt. This was completed at altitude in Mexico. It’s hard to imagine the record being attempted in these less than sterile surroundings now.

It’s all introduced by a youthful Phil Ligget (check the full head of hair).
