This documentary definitely has a strong point of view, and offers an informative and fascinating overview of the first 100 editions of the Tour. More than just facts, it tells the story of the Tour as an idea and a living entity. Even my boyfriend, who suffers through my Tour obsession every July, was sucked in.

Bought this for my grandads birthday as he loves cycling and the tour do france. I thought the dvd would be better than book and i was proofed right. My grandad was really pleased with his gift and since his neck was hurting he was able to watch it rather than read bout it. He thought it was a very good dvd.

I could not believe how good this DVD was especially for the price. Although each year is covered in a few minutes it is well done,and keeps you interested.

A great watch and most informative, this can be a reference DVD for the Tour. They should do an update about every 5 years.

This was much better than expected. There are some great film clips from the early years of cycling. As a gift for a true cycling enthusiast this proved to be much appreciated.

The colour that's been added to the old film sounds naff but works very well. It makes the pictures much more real and interesting. Well worth the money and a few viewings too.

Format: DVD
The dvd has been updated ,the new version has wiggins on the cover latest release 2013 , it is a decent dvd to watch but not the best thing ever , and not much on it after the armstrong era either, which is a shame .
It would have been nice if it had more on shleck and wiggins ect , to say its a 2013 release it seam to go as far as 2010 then stops.

Bought this for my uncle for Xmas. He loves cycling and has been following the sport most his life, so this gift was liked very much. I bought this along with the book - Tour de France: The Official 100th Race Anniversary Edition.
