Synopsis

On the 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.

Featuring the world's best bike racers - Lance Armstrong, Eric Zabel, Jan Ullrich,Tyler Hamilton, Alexandre Vinokurov, Andreas Klöden & more!
