Pro Cycling on the big screen: nine shows to watch or stream online in 2023

Pro Cycling on the big screen: nine shows to watch or stream online in 2023

Cycling fans around the world were thrilled to learn that streaming giant Netflix is creating a new series all about the Tour de France. But the Tour de France project isn’t the only one in the works. Amazon Prime has at least two new shows focusing on the world of pro cycling and Netflix reportedly has another focusing solely on Mark Cavendish.

2023, it seems, is the year that the web series format, popularized by EF/Rapha’s Gone Racing, Movistar’s The Least Expected Day and others, makes the jump to the big time. Here are nine projects, mostly about pro cycling but also with some gravel and other formats thrown in, that you can either stream now or look forward to this year.

And, if all of this seems too serious for a sport that is, in the end, just riding a bike then Tour de Pharmacy is still available to stream online and on real TVs.

Netflix gives Tour de France to Drive to Survive treatment

Netflix is turning the people behind its sensational F1 series, Drive to Survive, on the Tour de France. There’s no firm release date, though it is expected to be in early 2023, but the project now appears to have a title. Can Netflix do for cycling what it did for F1? Who knows, but it should be entertaining.

Prime’s Soudal Quick-Step series

While Netflix looks at the Tour de France, Amazon Prime is training its sights on just one team: Soudal Quick-Step. This project will follow the team through the 2022 season, Classics, Grand Tours and beyond. The release date is also in early 2023.

Jumbo-Visma: All-In

Not to be outdone by its rival, Jumbo-Visma also has a series coming to Amazon Prime. The team had quite the season last year, so there is plenty of material to spread out over several episodes. All-In‘selease date is set for March 1, but this could be geo-restricted to the Benelux nations. You can watch the trailer above, though English is limited to auto-generated captions. If you can’t wait that long, you can go back and re-watch the team’s 2022 Tour de France documentary, Plan-B: The Fall & Rise.

Movistar: The Least Expected Day – Season 4

The fourth season of Movistar’s team series, The Least Expected Day should be a big one. Annimek van Vleuten absolutely crushed the 2022 season and Alejandro Valverde called an end to his long and storied career. Plus, you know, plenty of other drama. There’s no release date yet for this one.
