Slightly Disappointing

(Edit) 11/10/2007

This had the potential to be quite an interesting film, unfortunately it is spoiled by the slightly frantic editing which leaves it looking more like an MTV commercial than a documentary.

There are some scenes which made me look at the sport in a different light, the mental fragility of the riders was fascinating to see, together with the constant cosseting & reassurance they require.

Riis' comments regarding doping are made more understandable viewed in this light, and while I don't approve of doping this film made me even less supportive of the idea of lifetime bans.

Overall, this film is a pleasant enough way to pass a rainy afternoon when you can't get out on your bike, but it isn't up to the standard of, for example, "A Sunday in Hell"
