The Tour de France is an event like no other, more akin to an epic saga than a mere bike race. As much as the televised coverage of the race has improved in the States over the past few years (remember the days before Versus when we’d be lucky to see a ten-minutes clip in ESPN2?) it’s still hard to get a feel for what it’s really like.
The new flick Chasing Legends by Gripped Films – the folks behind the Off Road To Athens movie – gives us a taste of what the Tour experience is like from an inside perspective. The sneak peak below will give you goosebumps; the movie itself will forever change the way you feel about the Tour. This is one that should be on every cyclist’s shelf.
