Video Action Sports - Blood Sweat & Gears DVD:
Blood, Sweat & Gears is the inspirational story of America’s only ProTour cycling team Garmin/Slipstream, a team devoted not only to cleaning up the sport of cycling but to winning the Tour de France.
Setting off from the frozen roads of a Colorado winter, racing over the dangerous cobblestones of the Spring classic Paris-Roubaix and finally arriving to the Champs-Elysees, the grand Parisian boulevard which marks the end of the Tour de France, this riveting, eye-opening documentary takes viewers on an incredible emotional journey, following the ups and downs of an underdog cycling team as they try, against all odds, to ride triumphantly into Paris. David Millar and all members on this team agree to race with no help from performance enhancing drugs.
From the intensive daily training required to compete at the highest level to the glory of winning races against the world’s best pro riders, Blood, Sweat & Gears captures the passion and suffering this simultaneously beautiful and brutal sport.
