Description

'The camera work is wonderful long sweeping helicopter shots in car film of Riis at work truly a pleasure to see a race from these perspectives. You hear how Riis combines with the US Postal team to split a race not really helping each other more like shared interest shaping a race outcome if you didn't know this went on then you maybe surprised with the realities of this film.'  Alastair Hamilton

The CSC Pro-Cycling team face an uphill struggle as they take on the world's most arduous sporting event the Tour de France. 1996 Tour winner Bjarne Riis has high hopes for his team particularly newcomer Ivan Basso who with Lance Armstrong's help has to overcome personal struggles before he can take on the Tour.
