This is the first true HD film about the Tour de France and takes viewers on an intense and personal journey through the most arduous bike race on the planet, following the stellar 2009 HTC Team Columbia from the Monaco Prologue into The Pyrenees, via The Alps and finally, into Paris. Narrated by Phil Liggett and featuring a cast of the sport's most venerated heroes, from Eddy Merckx to Lance Armstrong, Chasing Legends grabs the audience & doesn't let go for 94 minutes.
There is no greater sporting event in all of Cycling than the Tour de France. Chasing Legends delves into the rich history, passion and true grit of The Tour as seen through the eyes of Team HTC Columbia and protagonist-sprinter Mark Cavendish.
With a stunning array of HD cameras, poignant and touching interviews, ‘Chasing Legends’ takes the viewer inside the pro peloton on a roller coaster ride of action, history and emotion. The movie tracks the humble but no-less heroic origins of ‘Le Tour’, from the inaugural 1903 event to what has become the modern-day epic, turning HTC Team Columbia ‘inside out’ during the 2009 Tour and showing the highs, lows, triumphs and tragedies of those that make it through three long weeks of blood, sweat and tears to the fanfare and glory that awaits on the Champs Elysees.
Live Q&A with Mark Cavendish, the legendary Phil Liggett and film director, Jason Berry (+ more to be announced) to be beamed via satellite from London’s O2 Cineworld after the film to all cinemas.
