Editorial Reviews

This is the most comprehensive coverage of the Tour de France available in the world. This five-cassette boxed set includes all the original 3-hour footage, plus 7 additional hours of action--mountains, time trails, interviews, and profiles. Experience the Tour as never before with this unique Limited Collector's Edition!
With his third victory in the 2001 Tour de France, the courageous cowboy Lance Armstrong became the first American ever to win three consecutive tours and the fifth cyclist ever to accomplish three consecutive Tour wins. Any lingering doubts about Armstrong's form were brushed aside on L'Alpe d'Huez, Stage 10, when the Texan soared up cycling's most hallowed mountain to take the 8th Tour stage win of his career. Armstrong pulled off a masterly bluff as he faked fatigue on the two earlier climbs of the day and lured Jan Ullrich and others into a false sense of security before finishing the stage two minutes ahead of his most dangerous rival.

Other great moments of the 2001 Tour include: Armstrong's win in the Pyrénées for former teammate Fabio Casartelli; the epic battle for the green jersey between 5-time winner Eric Zabel and Credit Agricole's Stuart O'Grady; the emotional return to form by Frenchman Laurent (JaJa) Jalabert as he takes the coveted King of the Mountain jersey; and the ride of Roberto Laiseka, egged on by thousands of wild Basque fans, as he claims an emotional victory at Luz-Ardiden. With 217 km breakaways, unforgettable sprint finishes, and thrilling ascents by the best cyclists in the world, the 2001 Tour is a World Cycling Productions classic!

WCP has been producing classic coverage of the Tour de France since 1986. Once again, Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen offer world-class analysis and commentary. No one brings you deeper into the drama, the tension, and the tactics of the tour than Liggett and Sherwen. Includes stage-by-stage coverage from start to finish, plus behind-the-scenes interviews.

This is a DVD you must have if you like cycling and especially the tour de France. You get a good impression on how beautifull the Alpes and the Pyrenees are and how hard it is to clim these mountains. Of course Lance Armstrong is the central figure on this DVD, and he deserves it.

Hi all

As always, I enjoy not once but many times each time I watch at Tour de France DVDs but I would rather prefer a 12 hrs DVD set, this is too short, thats the only thing I would suggest, the rest is just excellent for spinning while watching, for motivating porposes and for collection

Regards

Wow, imagine trying to watch Lance Armstrong win an exciting mountain stage of the Tour while some synthesizer/porno music that is so loud you can't even hear the inane commentary of Phil Liggett or Paul Sherwin plays over the imagery? Well, this is what watching this DVD is like. And just as inexplicably as this "music" begins it sometimes, blessedly, ends. Sometimes it ends before the best part of the stage is over and sometimes not. Apparently the production team was high when they dumped this garbage on top of the video, or they were watching a porno and just happened to record some of the music. Either way, you'll have a hard time ignoring it. I say to myself, how dumb do people really have to be to think that something like this is actually a good idea? Well, look at who's president. Nuf said.
