--The Hard Road is awesome, but PRO is even
better! "The road goes from four lanes... to two... to one... to the Wall!" If
that doesn't motivate you to get outside and ride your bike, I don't know what
will?!! The editing of PRO is without question a step-up from The Hard
Road. More efficient, more deliberate, tighter.
--The behind-the-scenes look at the teams' pre-race meetings is
really interesting, and also helps the weekend warrior racer realize that Pros,
for all their exceptional talents, are still just people.
--Both the The Hard Road and PRO offer the viewer
more than a glimpse into the demanding world of the pro bike racer; and just
what it takes, and what it means to race against the best in the sport.
--The movie was good, I actually didn't want it to end.
From the maker of
The Hard Road, PRO
takes you on an exclusive journey into the rarified world of professional
bike racing, a world those outside the sport only dream of seeing. Travel
straight to the heart of pro racing - the lifestyle, the obsession, the
commitment, the struggle.
PRO is the tale of world class professional riders
preparing for and racing the premiere race in the United States - the
"must race" contest on everyone's list. Jamie Paolinetti's feature-length
documentary stars Bobby Julich, Chris
Horner, Freddie Rodriguez, John Lieswyn, Mike Sayers, Gord Fraser, Henk
Vogels, Mark McCormack, Jonas Carney, Trent Klasna, Michael Creed, Erik
Saunders, Tim Johnson, Frankie Andreu, Sean Kelly, and many others, who

PRO delivers this incredible inside look within the
"Philly Week" - the Wachovia Invitational in Lancaster,
Pennsylvania, the Wachovia Classic in Trenton, New Jersey, and the
Wachovia US PRO Championship in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
You see the rider hierarchy within the teams, the larger
hierarchy of peloton, the race strategies and sacrifices, who will work
and who will win. It takes you onto the race course, into the team
meetings, to riders' homes and through frank conversations with these
incredible athletes, you will see how they think and how they feel about
PRO follows the riders and teams through this race
week, also covering the races in depth, but through the eyes of retired
pro racer Jamie Paolinetti, who himself raced here a dozen times.
Paolinetti says of US PRO "...there was just a different feeling in the
air, a different excitement level, a different standard set for peoplesí
performances Ė it was the Super Bowl, it really was."
Read an interview with Paolinetti about the making of this
This film is a must see for every cycling fan!
"Jamie Paolinetti and his colleagues have made not only a visually
dynamic film that transports one to the race, but it clears the vacuum of
what goes on by way of preparation in each team. More than behind the
scenes, it is "the scene" as it unfolds during Philly week, when the best
America has to offer meets on the field of battle with top European pro
"You will hear one rider, who worked so hard at Philly this year,
describe how he couldn't feel his hands or feet (who it is might surprise
you, but perhaps not, when you think about it...), Erik Saunders'
brilliant philosophy of race tactics, and how Fast Fred felt when he won
his Giro stage this year."
"PRO will enlighten and captivate you, whether you
are an avid American race circuit fan, or don't even know most US domestic
racers' names. The mix of race action and rider interview in this film
could not be more comprehensive - it is almost to the point of uncanniness."
"I am confident that every person who watches this movie will know what
itís like to be at this great event riding with a big time pro team."
