Cycling World Cup: You must have streamed these movies and series | Watching guide

Our country’s Cycling World Championships kicked off on Sunday with a men’s time trial from Knokke-Heist to Bruges. In addition to Streamz, who is presenting their signature ‘Rainbow’ documentary series for the occasion, we are also applauding the Kijkgids cycling this week. Road eater Louis Taleb in The Racer (Netflix), a behind-the-scenes look at the Orica-Scott cycling team (Eat. Race. Win, Prime Video), the world’s toughest freestyle player on Accomplice (Netflix) and nostalgia triumphs in film “Allez, Eddy”: These are our five favorite bicycling movies and documentaries.

‘Rainbow’ – Streamz (8/9)

After his silver in Tokyo and two world championships at Imola last year, Wout van Aert will go no less than a gold on Sunday 26th September during the UCI road race from Antwerp to Leuven. It is the tenth time that the annual high mass cycling has occurred in our country. With special reconstructions of the previous nine editions – from the first in Liege (1930) to the last in Zolder (2002) – the ‘Rainbow’ documentary series offers you a fitting tribute to the rich Belgian cycling history. Maker Ludwig Bollaerts navigates through three themes (“campionissimi”, “unexpected winners” and “Belgian winners on Belgian soil”) in non-chronological order through his country’s World Cup history.

With his career fast approaching the age of 39, mare Chabol dreams of finally winning the 1998 Tour de France – also known as the ‘Tour dubag’.
