The trailer for 'A Throw of the Dice' looks a bit pretentious but these could be good http://www.rapha.cc/rsa-films/?cm_mmc=e ... img1-_-rsa

Sadly, I suspect the dodgy broadband will mean I can't see them :x

They look superb, and like the label will be pretentious, but looking forward to them. 13,20,27th August

Just watched the first one, albeit without sound.

Does anyone know how to download/save these?

Go rummaging in your browser cache.

There'll be a folder somewhere on your computer where your browser stores temporary content. It might look like:

C:\Documents and Settings\EdEdwards\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Go there and delete any large files (or clear the cache via your browser), then refresh the folder. View the films, refresh the folder again, and they'll appear as mp4 files from Vimeo. You can copy and paste them to a folder of your choice.

Watched roll of the dice, this afternoon. Not brilliant, but worth a watch.

Top stuff, many thanks.

However I've just watched it at home on an Apple, looked in the 'Cache' and couldn't find anything. Almost certainly technical incompetence but if anyone has downloaded a copy they can e-mail or burn to disc I'd be very grateful.

Still not managed to save but rewatched the film and it is pretty good although it rankles that Museeuw, in voiceover, states that De Vlaeminck won 5 times at the exact point they linger over his plaque in the Roubaix showers that clearly shows 4 wins.
