Blood, Sweat and Gears, SBS

doco on SBS right now.

bout american cycling team seeking to compete in its first Tour de France.

Watching it now. It was posted up in the tdf thread as well. Interesting behind the scenes look at what goes on around the race.

was cool to see all the managment and work that goes into this sort of thing as well as an up close with the emotional rollercoster of such an event, i felt so stoked for that mark guy when he go the call to go through to the olympics

yeah, the bastards really made out like he wasn’t going to make it… how depressing was it all after he didn’t go well in the team selection? and then, when he got the call, it was kinda awesome.

the whole doco was surprisingly amateur though. i’m willing to bet this is a bit slicker:
