Road... Behind the Scenes... With the Riders of Le Tour de France!
LOVE LANCE, ZABEL & VINO? You'll love
Hell on Wheels, the first film about professional bike racing for both
hardcore fans and newcomers to the sport!
Le Tour de France, the toughest bicycle race of all, recently celebrated
its 100th birthday. Year after year this spectacular event fascinates millions
of people worldwide. But within the beauty of the French countryside and the
tensions of the race, Academy Award Winner Pepe Danquart chose to illustrate
the torture and the pain, the fear and the courage of the riders of the Tour.
In the process he captures the thrill of the race, the essence of the stunning
landscape, and shines light on the Tour's supporting cast - the masseurs, managers,
fans and more. Adding a fine sense of history, Hell on Wheels transcends
the sport it celebrates to reveal an astonishing human endeavor.

Zabel, Jan Ullrich,Tyler Hamilton, Alexandre Vinokurov, Andreas Klöden
