According to directors David Deal and David Cooper, Road To Roubaix takes moviegoers along for the epic one-day, 112-year-old professional road race Paris-Roubaix, which features over 160 miles of the most difficult terrain the riders will encounter all season. The film includes interviews with the biggest names in cycling: Lance Armstrong, Tom Boonen, Fabian Cancellara, Juan Antonio Flecha, Sean Kelly, Jean Marie Leblanc and many more.
The film combines rare, behind-the-scenes footage, stunning panoramic views of the race, and a collection of archival and contemporary still images that most people never see, reminiscent of A Sunday In Hell, the 1976 classic arthouse film by Jorgen Leth.
