The Basic Time Trial Papers form one of four parts all of which dealing with the well known cycle racing element time trial. All four parts were produced in 2010, besides perpetri, by filmmaker, poet and much more Jørgen Leth, photographer Jakob Kristian Sørensen and writer Morten Okbo (The Four Danes Group they were named in that periode), and released in Rouleur Magazine issue 22, 2011. Rouleur Magazine happens to be the worlds finest and most highly acknowledged cycle racing magazine. Four combined yet individual spots on the art of Time Trialling.
The perpetri part goes under the title 'The Basic Time Trial Papers 1-5'. The 5 Papers goes for a bit by bit description of the very essentials (and maybe not so essential essentials): about the time trial rider, what's inside the time trial rider, what's around the time trial rider and so on, as he hurtles through the landscape. In style and spirit like kind of (legendary) notes, by the way recently recovered in various mundane places round Europe. That's a sidestory. Actually a Basic Paper no.6 still needs to be recovered to make the series complete. No.6 is supposed to depict a time trial seen from above and should bear the obvious title 'The Riders go round' (as they mostly do in a time trial). The latest assumption (regarding the hiding place of the sixth Paper) points out the rear end of a garage just a few kilometres south of Milan. That's what we have heard. That's also just a sidestory.
The Basic Time Trial Papers 1-5 aim at catching not only cycling matters but Life in general. The Basic Time Trial Papers 1-5 favour the horizontal because the riders move horizontally through the landscapes (well, you know what I mean, the movement is horizontal, well, apart from when riding in the mountains, now it gets complicated). The Basic Time Trial Papers 1-5 go for the thrilling bright, powerful mix of colours we know from the world of cycling.
The Rouleur Magazine issue 22 is probably still available online Rouleur Magazine, Rapha and in stockists round the world.
