Back by popular demand…
Andy Schleck has been in the road cycling news lately for all the wrong reasons. After coming in second at the 2010 Tour de France he’s struggled to match that result. His last couple of seasons have been marred with some public meltdowns, poor results, and some disappointing DNF’s.
In 2011 he starred in a German film called The Road Uphill…
The Road Uphill premiered in Luxembourg, Germany to rave reviews and despite being one of the most beautiful TDF cycling films since Chasing Legends – it suddenly disappeared. A undisclosed source close the the film project says that former RadioSack-Nissan Trek manager Johan Bruyneel had the film buried. Apparently, the Belgium mastermind decided the film was about Andy Schleck taking second place and claimed that second place in the Tour was nothing to be proud of.
We’d disagree, and are super-excited to bring this rare and excellent film back for another screening at COTA Movie Night this July.
Starring the Schleck Brothers, Fabian Cancellara, Jens Voigt, Stuart O’Grady, and the late Wouter Weylandt.
