Have you seen "Road"

I just watched "road" the story of the Dunlop family, and wow. I cannot believe what that family has gone through. It made paying for Netflix this month totally worth it. I have to say I have watched the Isle of Man for the past 4-5 years, and never knew the back story to Michael and William. There were a few times the commentators had mentioned the tragedy they have endured, but the extent and the whole story was quite moving. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.

Just watched the trailer. Thats on my list for sure. I'm watching "charge" now. It's all about the electric bikes, and i hate the idea of electric bikes but the story is good so far.

You are welcome. A movie/ tv program suggestion thread might be cool. If you have netflix and haven't seen it yet, "long way round", and "Long way down" are quite entertaining too.

"Road" was really quite good, even better for those that do not know the Dunlop story.

Good yes, but also tragically sad that this families' obsession with road racing has left their mother/grandmother with the loss of 2 sons.
