Detour De France

A fascinating look inside the world's biggest annual sporting event. This documentary focuses on three Australians reporting on the world famous cycling event, as they follow the fortunes of the 2005 Tour de France and Lance Armstrong's amazing last ride. All three bring a larrikin humour to their antics, propelling the film from mere reportage to something more akin to attending a sporting event with 'the boys'. These three characters enable you to get a feel for the REAL Tour de France.
