The DVDs

2006 - 2 Disc Set approx. 240min.

The Most Controversial Tour Ever!

The controversy and aftershocks stemming from one of the most dramatic and exciting Tours in decades continue at a fever pitch. In spite of two positive tests, Landis continues to aggressively deny any wrongdoing. This controversy will continue for weeks, if not months or even years. What is not debatable if the fact that the 2006 Tour de France was suffused with dramatic twists and turns, stuffed with excitement and surprises, and proved to be a spellbinding action thriller from start to finish!

Shock and controversy burst full-blown even before the start of the race when Spanish authorities announced results of their investigations of doping operations that forced the withdrawal of the Tour from four of last year’s top five finishers including both Ivan Basso and Jan Ullrich.

This led immediately to a virtual wide open field in the chase for the yellow jersey and sparked exceptional performances from scores of riders not prominent in pre-race prognostications. The race also produced expected showings from the specialists, all of it captured in our historic DVD. Robbie McEwen uses his incredible timing and acceleration to sprint to another green jersey. Michael Rasmussen wins his second consecutive KOM title with a courageous points-packed day in the Alps and Damien Cunego comes closer to fulfilling his vast potential and is named best young rider. Thor Hushovd pulls off the rare feat of victory on the first and last days of the race. It seems that each day produced another great winner, and it’s all captured on this spectacular DVD, including Landis's breakaway in stage 17.

The drama of the 2006 Tour never flags from beginning to end in this remarkable DVD. The post-race story is far from complete, but the race itself will undoubtedly go down as a notable chapter in the history of cycling’s most legendary event, and it’s all captured in vivid images and moving commentary in this year’s World Cycling Productions DVD.

Narrated by Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwen. Approx. 240 min.

The Tour Rediscovered

After perhaps the darkest hours in the history of the Tour de France, the 2007 race concluded with a ray of sunshine and glimmers of hope that the sport of cycling has entered a new era that will be free of doping scandals and marked by restored trust in the minds of its millions of fans.

Such was the impact of the victory of 24-year-old Alberto Contador on the Champs Elysees. Molded by the hands of Tour Kingmaker Johan Bruyneel and Discovery Channel – the power and the team behind Lance Armstrong’s seven Tour victories – the young Spaniard had to face numerous obstacles en route to success. It was an astounding finale to the American team’s last Tour de France!

A gifted climber, the Madrid-born rider first let rip on the daunting Galibier deep in the Alps as part of a daring two-rider attack. Then he came even closer to yellow with one of the most memorable mountain victories of the decade, deep in the Pyrenees on the fabled Plateau de Beille. Is it just a coincidence that on two occasions, Armstrong himself sealed the Tour there?

The final step to leadership came in a surprising twist that not even Bruyneel could have predicted or engineered. No sooner had Contador taken the yellow jersey than he had to mount his final defense in the terrain where he was weakest – the time trial. Hailed as the new Armstrong for his aggressiveness, strength and racing wisdom even in the most tumultuous of Tours, Contador’s path to cycling’s ultimate prize is a gripping tale of persistence in the face of sporting turmoil, self-belief in times of doubt and widespread cynicism, and courage in the darkest of dark times. This video presents a storybook triumph in the midst of real-world adversity! Don’t miss it!

Narrated by Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwen. Approx. 240 min.

This exciting view of cycling’s great race covers every aspect of the grueling three-week event, with maps, stage reports, and intimate profiles of the top riders — including George Hincapie, Floyd Landis, and Levi Leipheimer — in the peloton. Graham Watson’s vivid photographs bring the action up close.

The 2007 Tour de France: A New Generation Takes the Stage

John Wilcockson

Few races in history have sprung as many surprises as the 2007 Tour de France. In turns contentious, controversial, and compelling, this Tour began amidst record crowds and brilliant pageantry in a London send-off, and ended with victory by a young Spanish rider who had survived brain surgery and the death of his brother on his way to his first Tour crown.

The 2007 Tour will be remembered equally for epic battles in the Pyrénées, stage 19’s dramatic race-deciding time trial, a horrific litany of crashes that took down the Tour’s brightest stars, and a steady stream of doping scandals that saw pre-race favorite Alexander Vinokourov kicked out of the race after returning a positive test for an illegal blood transfusion, and race leader Michael Rasmussen dismissed by his Rabobank team for skirting dope tests.

By the time the race reached Paris, two teams had been sent home, a third was engulfed in controversy, and a fourth—the winning Discovery team, home to seven Tour victories under Lance Armstrong and a fresh win with Alberto Contador—had announced that it would cease operations at season’s end.

It’s a story no one could have predicted, and one you have to read to believe. Reported by Tour veteran John Wilcockson and the VeloNews editorial team, and containing the daily race diaries of riders Christian Vande Velde (Team CSC) and Simon Gerrans (Team Ag2r), The 2007 Tour de France is the fascinating record of a shocking and unforgettable race.
