Blood Sweat & Gears is the story of a unique American professional cycling team, a team devoted not only to cleaning up the sport of cycling but to succeeding in the Tour de France. Setting off from the frozen roads of a Colorado winter, racing over the dangerous cobblestones of the Spring classic Paris-Roubaix, and finally arriving at the Champs-Elysees, the grand Parisian boulevard which marks the end of the Tour de France, this riveting, eye-opening documentary takes viewers on an incredible emotional journey, following the ups and downs of an underdog cycling team as they try, against all odds, to ride triumphantly into Paris.

From the intensive daily training required to compete at the highest level to the glory of winning races against the world’s best pro riders, Blood Sweat & Gears captures the passion and suffering of this simultaneously beautiful and brutal sport.

FEATURING: David Millar, Mike Friedman, Magnus Backstedt, Christiane Vande Velde, Jonathan Vaughters, Matt White, Doug Ellis, Lara & Danny Pate, Will Frischkorn, Allen Lim, Team Garmin - Chipotle/Slipstream.
