DVD Owners Say
What a great movie!!! More insight into the professional
cycling world than I have ever found anywhere else!!! --J.M.
The film definitely made me want to follow the National
scene more, not only the European Classics. The word should be out further
that we have great world class cycling in the states and it should be
attended and supported. --M.M.
I've watched in 10 times already!! --T.W.
I have watched it about 10 times. Great movie. --R.O.
I just finished your film and it is amazing. I was
absolutely enthralled. Very impressed to say the least. You should produce
more along similar lines. I cannot imagine a cycling fan not owning this
film! --B. B.
I enjoyed every minute of the video and would recommend
it to every cyclist. I admire NetZero's dedication and sacrifice. I must
admit that I love cycling very much and oftentimes, while stuck in my office
cubicle, would find myself dreaming of my next ride. But I shall never dream
of riding at your level since I am not blessed with genes like yours and I
shall be content with training with friends at dawn before heading for the
office. Thanks for the opportunity of being able to take a glimpse of your
world. We all love our sport but it's you guys who take the word "love" to
the next level. -- E.
I love it and am currently encouraging everyone I ride with to get
one. --T. P.
I ordered your film as soon as it was available and watch it when I
need a reality check. You have captured the sport and told a captivating
story. --M. P.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. A lot of great cycling action that
you don't normally see. It had me riveted to the screen and I even had to
quickly watch it again to pick up on some of stuff I missed the first time.
I just can't even begin to imagine the sacrifices and suffering a
professional has to go through to ride at that level. --D. P.
(Golden Masters Cat 3)
I have already watched it twice. AWESOME! --J. F.
It's a great film-- Hope he's going to Sundance or Cannes. --P.
GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enough said, I am waiting for the
sequel. Where are they now. I was was glued to it. --M. M.
I'm glad someone finally made this movie, and especially glad that it
was made by someone who knows what he's talking about. --C. M.
Finally sat down and watched the DVD last weekend- excellent job! I
particularly enjoyed the Athens footage - I've wanted to put a race like
that in my downtown for years - excellent footage to sell the powers that be
on! --M. H.
Can I say it was amazing? Excellent, simply excellent.
Just finished watching the DVD. Why hasn't somebody done this before.
It's great! -- D. J.
I watched my DVD of The Hard Road for the first time last night. It
was much, much, better than I expected. Before long, my wife, 8 yr. old
daughter, and 10 yr. old son were watching with me. It's a terrific
documentary of the NetZero team's season, and provides a wonderful look at
behind the scenes of domestic racing. My family watched the entire movie,
always rooting for the "red and silver guys" to win. Jamie Paolinetti looks
to be as fine a film maker as he is fast as a cyclist. Thoroughly enjoyable,
I'd recommend "The Hard Road" to all cycling fans. --M. R.
I loved this film! I watched it with a close friend who's into racing,
and it was an experience I just can't describe in an email. I never
knew a thing practically about racing until I got to know this friend of
mine, but in the short time I've known him, I've developed quite a
facination for the whole thing, and your film was a really cool highlight.
Thank you for investing what must have been a lot of time and energy into
this labor of love! --R. S.
I already watched it (at work...) and wanted to let you know what an
excellent film this is! VERY well done! Congrats, and thanks very much!

“Paolinetti intermixes exciting race coverage, (particularly from the
U.S. Pro Championships) with a grind of long arduous road trips in the
team van to illustrate the reality of the pro cyclists life. Digging
deeper, he documents the difficulties of his teammates as they attempt to
fulfill their dream of being a pro cyclist. The Hard Road hits the
Bicycling Australia Magazine - Martin Verdis
“I loved this movie. It was mesmerizing. Once I started, I just wanted
to keep watching until the end. It is to road cycling what “BIG WEDNESDAY”
was to surfing and “ON ANY SUNDAY” was to motocross.
Bicycling Magazine & Bicycle Guide – Former Editor -Garrett Lai
“The Hard Road is a gritty inside story of a Pro team in
America. For up and coming racers, it’s a preview of what may be ahead,
For the rest of us, it’s a grim reality check, a reason to be thankful we
ride for fun and not for a living. THIS IS THE REAL STORY OF AMERICAN
Bicycling Magazine – Steve Madden – Editor
“Cool! Equal parts Bull Durham, A Sunday in Hell and The Real World.”
Triathlete Magazine – Jay Prasuhn – Senior Editor
“Jamie Paolinetti bridges the gap between Triathlon and cycling into a
realm we can all appreciate; the struggle for success in sport. The film
transcends sport as the cyclists simply strive to survive within a fringe
sport while pursuing a dream. You may never have taken part in a road race
in your life, but you just might find a bit of yourself in the film.”
The Ride Magazine
“The Net Zero racers are people who have an unlimited passion for the
sport, and make amazing sacrifices to chase their dream. How many pro
football players would work twelve hours a day, then come home and train
another four. Anyone chasing the dream of being a pro cyclist should watch
The Hard Road.”
V.P. Fox Sports Net - John Smelzer
“The Hard Road tells the brutal truth about what it takes to
make it at the highest level of sport. The secret, SACRIFICE, THEN
SACRIFCE SOME MORE!”
“Narrator Keith David’s rich, deep voice lends Paolinetti’s script
plenty of power. Any movie watcher can be gripped by the story of this pro
cycling team’s whirlwind season. The film proves Paolinetti to be a
credible expert, as well as a credible filmmaker who can entertain viewers
with a good story.”
“Though it’s listed as a documentary, it’s really a live-action/sports
film with personal drama that is about real people. A dream version of
what every cyclist would want in a reality TV show. There is cool footage
of race action that shows the significance of team strategy and how great
it is when things work out.”
The Daily Peloton.com
“Follow the racers behind the scenes of the biggest races in the U.S.
for an inside look at the team’s camaraderie and triumphs, as well as
their disappointments and hardships. Financial reward, a certain future,
and social normalcy are just some of the things that must be sacrificed in
exchange for a soul-deep engagement with something essential in
themselves. If you love bike racing, you’ll love The Hard Road, but
the best thing about it is there is much more in this film than just bike
L. A. Sports and Fitness Magazine
“When it comes to cycling, Jamie Paolinetti knows his stuff, and it
shows in this feature film. Go behind the scenes of the biggest races and
get to know the riders up close and personal.”
“The Hard Road takes you inside the world of pro cycling like no
film ever has. Get an inside look at all the big pro teams, including some
great footage of FRANKIE ANDREU and the U.S. Postal Team.”
Michael Ward of The Wallflowers
“The Hard Road captures the true spirit of suffering for what
you love. A GREAT FILM!”
