A not-to-be-missed film by Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan will be the Friday, March 31 opening night feature film for the American Documentary Film Festival, taking place in Palm Springs March 31- April 5. Keoghan was inspired to tell a relatively unknown story in an unconventional way in a film with wide appeal and evocative, good story-telling. Handsomely shot with beautiful views of the French countryside, LE RIDE chronicles Keoghan’s reenactment of the 1928 Tour de France, and the series of events that inspired him to do so. The beauty of LE RIDE goes beyond what is captured by the lens.
We started taking our jerseys off in the summer on hot days and found that all the snacks, phones, tools and wallets had nowhere to go. Walton cut up an old leg warmer one day and stitched a pocket to his bib shorts, and immediately they became his go-to bibs. Heading out on a ride wearing only a base layer or just a loose t-shirt was so freeing, that we began to develop a product with Endo Customs in LA based on Walton’s customized racing bib shorts.
I personally think this bib will forever change the cycling apparel game. I know Giro tried this once and it didn’t really take off, but I also believe the Giro New Road stuff was just about two years too early. People just weren’t ready! I just wanna rock these with pearl snap button ups all summer!
