    Sunday January 24th 2010 at 1.30 p.m

    The Tour de France and Cycle Racing in Britain in the 1950s, 60s and 70s (U)

    Films screening this afternoon include:* Tour of Legends* (Erik van Empel, Ned, 2003, 68m); Behind the Scenes at the 2009 Tour de France (Ray Pascoe, UK, 2009, 40m).

    From Britain: RTTC Junior 25, Hill Climb, and 12 Hour championships (G. and J. Turner, UK, 1979, 30 m); Miscellaneous newsreel footage of racing in Britain in the 60s and 70s (15m).

    Also: Daily Cycling in Copenhagen (Mikael Colville-Andersen, Denmark, 2009, 14m).

    London's cycling film aficionados return to Riverside Studios with a selection of shorts and features ranging from the Tour de France, through to British Time Trial Championships and everyday cycling in Copenhagen. A particular treat is the screening of “Tour of Legends” Erik van Empel takes us to the annals of the Tour De France: the yellowed magazines, scratched glass plates and damaged film footage… featuring legendary cyclists Gino Bartali (photo below), Louison Bobet and Jean Robic.

    ...and RIP Albert Beurick. We heard today that Albert Beurick, a regular visitor to the Hammersmith Cyclists Film Show, died yesterday. Albert was a friend and supporter of many British racing cyclists, including Tom Simpson, who came to race in Belgium and stayed at his family’s Café den Engel. We are planning a brief appreciation of him at the show by Ray Pascoe and others who knew him.
