I just watched this fabulous documentary on the 2003 TDF titled Hell On Wheels (available from Netflix). A friend sent me a copy and I was just mesmerized. Even though I am not particularly a racing fan, I have to say this was probably the best pure cycling film I have seen. Great camera work, human interest and plenty of excitement...a rider rocketing down a mountain into either fog or cloud and perhaps a visibility of 40 yards...Lance powering up an impossibly steep mountain faster than I could probably ride down it. Guys on top and guys injured and out of it...they all have neat thoughts to share... Falls and sprints and strategy and great scenery...the film seemed to have everything. Two hours of pure pleasure. Maybe I'm the last one who hadn't seen it? If you absolutely cannot get hold of a copy, drop me a line off list.
