Didn't get to go to the nationwide release tonight but just wondered if anybody did and what did you think?

thought it was pretty good, although ten quid was steep IMO. Good behind the scenes bits of the riders, just catch it on DVD/blu ray when it comes out, worth a watch
Good film borderline 'season review' but definately worth a watch....
I was half expecting it to turn in to the Tommy Hill show with the ups and downs he had last season, but do they just have a bit of focus for all the riders then?
And at the end did they put:
To be continued....
This was a glorified end of season review, there wasn't that much behind the scenes stuff that wouldn't be covered by Eurosport any way. A couple of interviews with the wags and Tommy Hills dad, good coverage of the MCE girls though.
Had it been on Eurosport I'd have been more impressed. Was it a cut and paste job, I think so.
Roll on IOM TT 3D.
I'm with you nickmas
Basically, if you didn't know the sport, you left not knowing the sport. There was a quick mention right at the start about the bikes themselves, but otherwise there was no indication of what it takes to ride one, how it feels to ride one, the skills, techniques, styles. I don't even think they mentioned the capacity (I may be wrong on that though). No sesnse of rivalry at all - just voice overs saying "I can win this". No explanation of the points system, other than after Cadwell it levels out and it's the showdown. Now I know what that is, if you didn't you had to guess. Only quick, blink and you missed it, text on screen for who was winning - never told you by how much though. Not a single bit of on bike footage. It was just a glorified season review to me.
If you go to the races, and/or watch it on TV - you've seen it all before.
