Blood, Sweat, and Gears

Blood Sweat + Gears, Racing Clean to the Tour de France ★★★★
This film is yet another bicycle documentary, looking at the origin of the Team Garmin Slipstream and their rise from humble origins to competition in the Tour de France, with Christian Vande Velde placing 4th in total standing. The prevailing theme was a determination to do bicycle racing clean without the use of performance-enhancing drugs. It is a moving and well done story, inspiring one to hop on the bicycle and take off.
