What is the point of this film? It seems to be a load of cobbled-together and apparently randomly edited clips of the CSC cycle-racing team throughout the season - in winter training and during the 2004 Tour de France. There is little or nothing to hold them together, and no proper storyline to make the viewer feel as if the film is going anywhere.
The situation is made worse by the fact that most of the characters involved are really, really boring people. Bjarne Riis is the most uninspiring speaker you could imagine, and the soigneur is just a bit wierd. Jens Voigt is good value, but he does not feature very much.
This film is OK if you're really into cycling, as there is some good footage of the race. Some of the extras are all right as well, but to be honest the main feature looks like a DVD extras segment. If it's cycling action you want, though, you may as well buy a Tour de France highlights video. And if you want to get under the skin of the Tour De France - experience some of the atmosphere, the suffering and the whole carnival behind the race, you would be much better off buying "Hell on Wheels", which has both coherent editing and interesting characters.
