For the first time ever, a collection of Red Zinger and Coors Classic highlights from 1978 to 1988 and never-before released historical cycling films are available in one DVD set!
After emerging from the Red Zinger, the Coors Classic became the ultimate forum and standard for stage racing in the U.S. The race was a career catalyst for some of world's greatest cyclists, such as LeMond, Hampsten, Carpenter, Twigg, Grewal, Phinney, Bauer, Phil Anderson, Alcala, Longo, and Heiden.
This collection features a core sample of world-class, pro-Am men and women's racing throughout Colorado, California, Nevada, Wyoming, and Hawaii, in what was considered the fourth biggest race on the world cycling calendar. And at the time it was also the single biggest women's race ever held.
Includes short films spanning the Red Zinger years shown in movie theaters; Coors Classic CBS, NBC, and ESPN network coverage; and Denver TV specials, documentaries of Bernard Hinault's 1986 win, the BMW motos used at races, and other race-associated projects like the bizarre Euro sport Cycleball.
