Lively chronicle of professional team
WHEN the tour bus got wedged beneath a Tour de France finishing arch, Australia’s first professional cycling team knew it wasn’t going to be smooth sailing on the international stage.
All For One is a lively documentary chronicle of the first five years in existence of GreenEdge, Australia’s first ProTour cycling team.
The film’s deep, behind-closed-doors access to the inner workings of an elite cycling outfit — particularly one which made quick and significant inroads into Europe — is both its calling card, and saving grace.
Two-wheeled tragics eager to learn as much as they can about the planning, training and personality management necessary to engender real success in the likes of the Tour de France will be enthralled by much of what is on display here.
“One of the best sporting documentaries I have ever seen.” – Dean Jones, legendary Australian batsman.
“Amazing film… Really inspiring.” – Nathan Buckley, Collingwood AFL coach.
“One of the best films I have seen.” – former AFL coach Mick Malthouse.
“Packed with heart, bravery, laughter and tears… much more than a cycling film.” – Sam Edmund, Herald Sun
The movie is part of Bike Week celebrations which runs from October 7-15.
It will start with a bang courtesy of CycleFest, which begins with a time trial climb from Palmwoods to Montville. That will be followed by 110km gran fondo and several smaller events as part of the festival.
