From the Back Cover:

World Cycling Productions' 1999 Tour de France video showcases one of the greatest and most inspiring sports comeback stories of all time as Lance Armstrong goes from near death to the top of the podium in Paris. It's all here--Armstrong's domination of the tour from a stunning stage victory in the Alps to total control in the Pyrenees, and a heartfelt, stars-and-stripes victory in Paris. One of WCP's best productions ever.

Armstrong returns for the 2000 race and crushes the Tour de France field for a second year in succession. The climb to Hautacam in the Pyrenees is where this turns into Tour de Lance as the cancer survivor hero puts in a ride worthy of the greats, perhaps the most stupendous piece of bike riding since Miguel Indurain's supersonic time trial at Luxembourg. In the chilling rain and dank mist, Marco Pantani, Alex Zulle, and Jan Ullrich are left trailing as Armstrong displays the finest climbing form of his career. It's all here, including the battle with Pantani on Mont Ventoux, Ulrich's move to win the Tour as Armstrong experiences hunger knock on the Col de Joux Plane, the brave riding of David Millar, the comeback, albeit short, of Laurent Jalabert, and the unforgettable climbing of Colombian Santiago Botero. 400 minutes.
