Sunday being a slack day saw me watching the 2011 Tour de France stage 15 which finished at Montpellier, France. I was able to keep abreast of the race on my iPad.

Todays Tour de France is full of technology keeping arm chair fans like myself updated at every turn of the 194Km. During the race I noticed one of the commentators mention Chasing Legends a fantastic DVD directed by Jason Berry.

Jason “There is no greater sporting event in all of cycling than the Tour de France. Chasing Legends touches on the rich history, passion and true grit of The Tour as seen through the eyes of Team HTC Columbia along with commentary from Phil Liggett, Paul Sherwen, Eddy Merckx, Lance Armstrong and some of the sports most prolific heros. With a stunning array of HD cameras, poignant and touching interviews, “Chasing Legends” will take viewers deeper into the pro peloton than ever on a roller coaster ride of action, story and emotion.”
