4.0 out of 5 stars An incredible 100 years of cycling in 120 minutes., 4 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Tour De France: 1903-2003 Centenary [VHS] (VHS Tape)
"This official history celebrates an incredible century of cycling, from the early flickering images of the 1903 winner, Maurice Garin, to the amazing scenes which greeted Lance Armstrong's fifth straight victory in 2003."
It's a great DVD, both inspiring and nerve-wracking to watch but there's only so much that can be included in a 2-hour documentary. While not every winner gets a mention, the overall history and most notable races, winners, tragedies and scandals are relived with footage (or stills for the oldest races) and race commentary. More time is given to the 2003 race.
So, what's missing? DVD extras has an extended profile on only Eddy Merckx - at least all the 5-times winners would be expected; an official history could also be expected to be be comprehensive, with textual history, results and biographies - none of which is included; and this is an English language only DVD which is strange for a French race where the official web site is in French and English.
