Leave it to a heroic Texan to guide America's incredible emergence as a great power in professional cycling. In our years of covering the world's greatest bike race, we've witnessed the Tour de France exploits of LeMond, Indurain, Riis, Ullrich and Pantani. But with impressive victories against the clock and in the Alps, former cancer patient Lance Armstrong unifies fans and riders alike in the most inspirational sports comeback story of all time. Fellow Americans Hamilton, Hincapie and Andrea support their leader perfectly as he battles against all odds, perhaps saving cycling's tarnished image along the way, exactly ten years after American hero Greg LeMond's own return from a near-death experience to the top of the podium in Paris. Can Armstrong fend off the scandalous European press, survive the Pyrenees and make it all the way to Champs Elysees in the yellow jersey? Can he avenge the heartbreaking, high-speed crash of countryman Bobby Julich, the pre-Tour favorite? Packed with action, exclusive interviews by Paul Sherwen and roaming reports by Gary Emlach, this is a must-see video surely to become a collector's item. Approximately 3-hours.
