Lively chron­i­cle of pro­fes­sional team

Multisport Mecca - - News -

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.

The GreenEdge team is fea­tured in the movie All For One, look­ing at their first five years in ex­is­tence.
