Cobbles Baby!

Urgent news release from the inimitable Jessi Pacetti;

He's done it again! Gonzo filmmaker and cycling
wild man Scott Coady has just finished Cobbles Baby! which chronicles his non
stop, over the top adventures at Paris-Roubaix, the bicycle race usually called
The Hell of the North. The world premiere of Cobbles Baby! will be
November 16-21 at some of the most fabulous theaters in northern California
including the Art Deco masterpiece Grand Lake Theatre and the utterly charming
Orinda Theatre. Check out all the details below.

Coady's first
film The Tour Baby! was a breakout success earning cult status among cyclists
around the world. Cobbles Baby! chronicles Scott Coady's adventures to get
up close and personal to the hardest one-day bike race on the planet.
Along the way he has full access to American strongman George Hincapie and the
U.S. Postal Service cycling team. Coady's trademark "dumb luck" strikes
again when he finds himself drinking in a pub with commentators Phil Liggett and
Paul Sherwin. The scene gets even wilder when Irish cycle racing legend Sean
Kelly wanders in for a pint. Not to be missed.

Pez Cycling News
said the film put viewers "right in the middle of the action...I could easily
imagine standing on a dirt path along one of the famed cobbled sections, and I
think I actually smelled the dirt!"

Filmmaker Scott Coady will
attend each and every screening, and furthermore will sign his DVDs (which will
be on sale), chat with the audience and answer all your questions. Also, there
will be a raffle each night of valuable stuff from Fox Racing, Mountain
Hardwear, Clif Bar, and CamelBak.

If that's not enough to
get your butt into a seat, check this out: all the proceeds from this six night
movie extravaganza will be shared by two fabulous organizations. The
NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League (yeah! get those youngsters on
the single track trails). Check them out at
http://www.norcalmtb.org/events/cobbles/index.htm And the Davis Phinney Foundation to improve the
lives of people living with Parkinson's disease. By the way, among those people
is the former Tour de France competitor Davis Phinney himself.

Synchronicity here, I just ordered the DVD for the shop today and really looking forward to seeing it, the Tour Baby was a very good seller and the buyers loved it.

I enjoyed "The Tour Baby" and I am looking forward to seeing this one as well. Since George Hincapie is prominently featured in the film, I think Scott needs to do a screening here in Greenville, SC. I am not biased toward the area or anything, but I think that would be a great idea.
