World Cycling Productions 2011 Tour de France DVD 4 Hour
2 Disc Set approx. 240min.
Sometimes, just sometimes, in the biggest bike race on earth the script gets ripped up from the word go?
When was the last time a Tour de France favorite loped out of the pack on an Alpine stage with 62 kilometres to go ? to win? Or that on the first day, the outstanding favorite lost nearly two minutes?
This was the Tour 2011, a race where Andy Schleck singlehandedly rolled back the years with a spectacular long-distance mountain breakaway - and where three-times defending champion Alberto Contador was in serious trouble from day one.
The Tour 2011: where an avalanche of horrific crashes blighted the first two weeks; where US team Garmin took their first ever Tour victory, and then could not stop winning; where France discovered its most courageous cycling hero since Laurent Fignon; and where America's Tyler Farrar netted the biggest victory of his life - for his best friend.
The Tour 2011: a race where for three spellbinding weeks, each and every stage was steeped in uncertainty and saw favorites hopes raised and dashed and raised again. The Tour 2011: our only regret is that it couldn't have been longer.
