Red Zinger/Coor Classic DVD Release Party

Alexi Grewal obliges a fan at Red Zinger reunion

“Honestly, I’d half expected to be under-whelmed by the DVD: who wouldn’t be jaded by years of extensive footage of the Tour de France? But any misgivings about the Coors Classic vanish when I start to watch. The quality of the event, the passion visible in the greatest racers of their day, the unmistakable look of the race, with its stylish banners and big red hanging signs, the podium and who’s on it—they swell the race right back up to the size it had when I saw it live in Boulder every summer as a kid. This video burns bright, capturing how this race ignited the sport of cycling in the United States.”
