Le Tour Prologue


I’m getting in the mood for today’s Tour de France prologue time trial by listening to the excellent KRAFTWERK – TOUR DE FRANCE SOUNDTRACKS.  The prologue will provide the first glimpse of the much-touted battle between six-times winner Lance Armstrong and arch rival Jan Ullrich.  Free UK TV coverage will be on the ITV2 digital channel.

Later tonight, BBC4 digital channel will be having a Tour de France evening including Death on the Mountain, the story of Tom Simpson, who died whilst on the tour; Sunday in Hell, the classic documentary about the notoriously punishing Paris-Roubaix one day classic and Belleville Rendezvous, the animated movie featuring the Tour de France and some exploding frogs.
