Hey Minions, GvA, @David.McQuillen.KoS, et al, hear me out - while in a delusional fog somewhere in AVDP during ToS I had an idea for content I for one would LOVE.
What about creating a Legends series? Not like an inspiration thing like Poulidor, but actual SUF sessions built around old footage of the greats: Merckx, Anquetil, Hinault, Coppi, Lemond, Kelly, etc.? Maybe even some of the debatable ones? (I’m sorry, I will always miss Marco Pantani).
We already have videos with some of the female legends, but heck - you could do Connie Carpenter-Phinney (maybe an Omnium spin-off?), Inga Thompson, Beryl Burton, etc. (that would be some footage!).
Etc., etc., you get the idea. Or you could do the same with the great tours and/or classic one-days - combine old footage to make epic TdF, GdI, la Vuelta, Roubaix…
A Legends catalogue would be epic. There’s plenty of archival footage out there to run together SUF-length efforts, and it’d be a great way to introduce younger generations to the greats that they’ve only likely heard of (if that). Heck @michael.cotty throws up enough ancient TdF footage to make a feature film!
Anyway, just a thought.
