Brian, "When we first heard they were going to make a movie, Rolf assured me we would look like Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp but we look more like Stan and Ollie"
I'm just now finishing the fixes and edits for the BluRay and 2nd pressing of the DVDs for Chasing Legends. Part of that is editing the 40 minute Q&A from the O2 in London after our UK premiere. I hadn't watched it until just now. Gotta say, it's a powerful thing for me. I don't often give myself much credit for having accomplished much and I am my own harshest critic. But this video made me pause and realize I was part of a really amazing adventure brought to film that will be a part of cycling for many years to come. Here are some screen shots of this really special event. Hope you get a feeling for the vibe we had there, it was a once in a lifetime chance. I'm so glad I took it.
Order the BluRay if you want to see this funny & moving interview. www.chasinglegends.com
Rolf, Brian, Phil, Cav and myself at the largest screen in all of Europe, the O2. Standing room only in most of the 55 theaters watching the live broadcast.
Brian talks about things not always going to plan. "Sometimes we have to freestyle"
Mark and Phil banter back and forth about his sincerity and income
Mark says, "I don't like to sit in and just wait for the sprint. I want to do my share of the work"
And Phil says something about working as a waiter with such a shirt.
Rolf and Brian can be deadly serious but that just makes their joking banter even more fun
Talking about the vision I had and first meeting Cav
The sign from Jeremy our interpreter - "Is not possible"
Cav still defending his shirt
Seeing the vision
Things were often exceptionally challenging. From dreaming up the film right up to the night of the O2 event. I gave a big thanks to all involved, especially my friends and family for their support. That got me a bit choked up to start with, then ...
Phil asked they give me a round of applause and the place went nuts, my eyes instantly welled up and all I could do was smile - an unforgettable moment in my life.
