For the eighth year running and eleventh time in two decades, the United States ruled supreme in the worldís toughest endurance event - the Tour de France. But with Tour giant Lance Armstrong no longer in the picture, only one manís persistence in the face of near-certain defeat could make it happen, only one manís courage could give American her hardest fought Tour victory ever. As the lone protagonist of an Alpine epic lasting 130 kilometres over some of Europeís most gruelling climbs, Pennsylvanian Floyd Landis returned both dignity and pride to a deeply troubled race. Following a fascinating strategic battle for the yellow jersey for two long weeks, from the plains of northern France to the daunting rainsoaked Pyrenees in the south, the American - despite suffering from a chronic hip injury - had been poised for triumph. But then it all went wrong. Very wrong. Within 24 hours, the 30-year-oldís dream of succeeding Lance Armstrong on the Champs Elysťes was shattered, apparently beyond repair. How Landis then managed, in the most unexpected of circumstances, to reverse the irreversible and regain the Tour crown he thought lost forever is truly the stuff of sporting legend. This worldcycling dvd offers a painstaking detailed and crafted account of Landis lone mountain saga, a triumph against all odds that culminates in one of the greatest sporting adventures of the decade.
